Systems Administrators embrace Google's motto to ensure millions of users can access the world's information without a glitch.

As a Systems Administrator at Google, you own and support the needs of one of Google's server infrastructure systems. You're highly technical and work directly with other server and service owners to ensure reliability and sustainability of the Google service infrastructure as well as compliance with internal policies.

Success in this role means you are able to support servers in a mixed operating system environment and work efficiently with our internal technology providers as well as other operations groups.

Googlers rely on your guidance when it comes to design decisions so you'll have a direct impact in keeping the business productive.

The Google VMware Engine service enables customers running on-premises VMware workloads to seamlessly migrate to Google Cloud without having to re-architect or refactor their applications.

We help customers leverage the value of existing VMware investments while maintaining operational continuity and avoiding data center management, hardware refreshes, and procurement cycles.

As part of this team you will assist in launching and on-going supporting the Google VMware Engine service and infrastructure.

Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running.

From developing and maintaining our data centers to building the next generation of Google platforms, we make Google's product portfolio possible.

We're proud to be our engineers' engineers and love voiding warranties by taking things apart so we can rebuild them. We keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.
