Want An Engineering Job At Google?

Want An Engineering Job At Google? Here Are 10 Needed Skills

Google, the most desired company for any job seeker is as cool as its name. Google keeps its employees happy and creative. Pressure of work is not as mush as that of creating and coming up with new ideas. Engineers are considered rock stars at Google and are even paid like them. It’s like a dream come true for the engineers to work here. Now here comes the trouble.

Jobs at Google may be a heavenly experience but to get hired one should have unique skills and knowledge. So, here we are handing you a list of skills that one should have, in order to get a $100, 000 worth engineering job at Google.

Learn to Code: Code makes your computer programs work. For example, it is the list of commands that tell a word processor, a website, a video game or even an airplane navigation system what to do. That is all what software is, lines of code written by people. In order to get a job in Google one should learn coding at least in one object oriented programming language like C++, Java or Python.

Test the Code: It is not sufficient to only learn coding. Candidates should be able to test the codes. Google wants them to be capable of identifying and removing bugs, breaking software and creating tests. Algorithmic problems are even asked during the technical interview round.

Have some Background in Abstract Math: Some knowledge regarding abstract or pure mathematics should be present before applying for a job in Google. One should cover areas like logical mathematics, algorithm, discrete math and derivatives and integral problems which one learns along with the computer science.

Get to Know Operating Systems: An OS or Operating System is software that manages computer hardware and software resources and provides common services for computer programs. It’s an important component of the system software in a computer system.

Becoming Familiar with Artificial Intelligence: The intelligence shown by machines in the field of work is known as Artificial Intelligence. In Google such intelligence is given high respect. So a person having the capability to work on such machines and bring extraordinary results is always welcomed by Google.

Understand Algorithms and Data Structure: Google requires the knowledge of fundamental data types like stacks, queues and bags as well that of Algorithms like quicksort, meregesort and heapsort. Data structure is a particular way of organizing data in a computer. Algorithm is a self-contained step by step set of operations to be performed. Algorithms perform calculations, data processing and automated reasoning. To get outstanding results like Google, one should definitely know about such things.

Learn Cryptography: Cryptography is a technique of securing information in the presence of adversaries. It is used to construct and analyze protocols to block the third parties. Various aspects of information security come under this, like data security, authentication, non-repudiation and confidentiality. If you know all of the above, you have a bright chance in Google because cyber security is very important for the entire system of Google.

Learn How to Build Compilers: Compiler is a computer program that transforms source code written in a programming language into another computer language. It is generally used for translating high level programming language source code to a lower level language or machine language. Learning to build this program is one of the key criteria that can help the applicants take a real shot at Google.

Learn Parallel Programming: Parallel programming refers to a model where a number of programs can be compiled and operated parallely.

Large problems can often be divided into small ones and then are solved easily. Computing numerous problems simultaneously together is really a matter of great power and pressure. Hence a Google engineer should learn that as well.

Learn other Programming Languages: The more, the better, is the key to success and improvement. If a person learns many languages like Javascript, CSS, Ruby and HTML, then there will be no looking behind.

ChefJet Pro 3D

Tech You Can Eat

3D food printers became deliciously real this year. From the CocoJet that printed complex, layered chocolate treats, to the ChefJet Pro 3D that churned out intricate confectionery to the XYZprinting machine that printed out pizzas and pasta. My prediction: in five years, 20 per cent of us will own a 3D printer in our home and almost all of us will have one in our kitchen.

Panasonic 4K Blu-ray player

At Least It’s Working

The conundrum of whether you should buy a 4K TV or not rests on whether you can play 4K content on it. Panasonic came one step closer to this with its 4K Blu-ray player. This one plays real raw 4K content, not some upscaled crappy stuff. The problem is that it’s still a prototype and may take some time to become reality. At least this was a working model, most others companies couldn’t even do that with their so called 4K media players.

StoreDot – fully depleted battery go to 100 per cent in about 120 seconds

Solving The World’s Greatest Problem

Maybe quadrupling the battery life of your phone isn’t possible yet. How about charging your phone to full in exactly two minutes, instead? I saw a fully depleted battery go to 100 per cent in about 120 seconds. This two-minute sorcery was made possible by a company called StoreDot, whose ultra-fast battery charger is in prototype form but may be out sometime this year.

Thync mood enhancer

Oh Come On, That Can’t Be

A wearable device that can actually alter your mood. Before you get into a sceptical mood and move on to the next award, give this one a chance. This is the Thync mood enhancer, a system that delivers feel-good electrical stimulation directly to your brain. It has been created by neuroscientists, and as I strapped on the little unit to my temple and neck, I was very sceptical too. Ten minutes later, I came out feeling really, really good. Thync about that!

Lenovo LaVie HZ550

The Living Cliché

Light as a feather may well be an old way of describing things, but when it becomes real, it’s a tad unnerving. As I held the Lenovo LaVie HZ550 in my hand, I actually had to ask the people at the booth if it was just an empty shell. This is a 13 incher that weighs just 700 grams (that’s about half of the 13-inch Macbook Air) yet has serious power under its very light hood. Great screen, great processor, good battery life. And that lightness!

Furo-S

Furo-S

Many came to mind but two stood out. The Furo-S is a five foot tall female robot that will work as your maid, but unfortunately the programmers seem to have given her more of sex slave personality. She winks inappropriately at all suggestions, has strange expressions and moans too! And female exploitation at some booths was excessive. From outfits that were more appropriate for strip clubs – the booth babe syndrome lived up to the cliché that the only way to sell tech is with under-dressed girls!

CyberPower Fang Trinity

The Most Badass Gaming Rig Ever

When you want a gaming rig PC, then it should look the part. And the CyberPower Fang Trinity does just that. As its multi-spoke design looks menacingly at you, you may forget that there’s an intelligent reason for it to look this way. It separates the chassis into three zones (CPU, graphics and power supply), so that each runs at its most efficient and can be customised and upgraded separately, the way gamers would like it. The CyberPower Fang Trinity is so badass that it should have its own character in a game.
