As a Cloud Developer Programs Engineer (DPE), you stand at the intersection of a technology movement shaping our world - between the people who build it and the customers who use it. Developer Programs Engineers (DPEs) are the engineering wing of Developer Relations. We ensure that Google Cloud and related open source projects like Kubernetes, Beam and TensorFlow are amazing for developers.

As "customer zero" we're the first developers to use upcoming services. We provide feedback on API design, platform consistency and functionality. We write sample code and work with our technical writing teams to produce developer documentation, quickstarts and tutorials. We release open source code, participate in developer forums and help troubleshoot developer problems.

You're a phenomenal engineer who loves to produce great code that is an example for those who come after yo and crave customer interaction. You love learning new concepts and then finding innovative ways to teach those concepts to others.

In this role, you will work on our Machine Learning products and this is one of the most exciting and fastest-growing areas of Google Cloud Platform. To be successful in this role, you have experience in one or more of the following areas: Running machine learning training and prediction using a framework like TensorFlow, Torch, Theano or Caffe. Performing Machine Learning in R or scikit-learn and analyzing large datasets using using analytical databases (e.g. BigQuery or Redshift) and processing large datasets using tools like Hadoop, Spark or Beam.

Products covered by this role include BigTable, BigQuery, Cloud Machine Learning, Machine Learning APIs (Vision, Speech, Natural Language, Translation), Cloud Dataflow, Cloud Dataproc and Cloud Datalab.

Google is and always will be an engineering company. We hire people with a broad set of technical skills who are ready to take on some of technology's greatest challenges and make an impact on millions, if not billions, of users.
