Meet Software Engineers at Google

By | December 8, 2019


My name is Astrid Atkinson and I’m an
engineering director at Google. My name is Raghav Lagisetty, my role
is a technical lead manager in software engineering. My name is Sagnik
Nandy and I am a distinguished engineer. Over the years I have fooled enough
people to think I’m somewhat distinguishable.
my name is Elmer Garduno and I work in software engineering Cloud machine
learning. In my current role, we write software to make machine learning
accessible to people everywhere. Being a software engineer, a good part of it is
writing software, another good part of it is finding out the right solution for a
problem. And of course writing code. It’s a computer engineer’s dream to build
systems that work for billions of users. I feel energetic every day coming to
work because there’s exciting stuff going on all the time. There’s a series of
tools that Google has built that streamline this whole process of
software development, writing code, for getting your code reviewed by your
fellow software engineers, and then once you finish writing code you have to
deploy your code into production. Our main challenges are in creating great
user experiences, not just software that works but experiences that work for
users. It’s an honor and a privilege to work with a team that is really high
functioning. You get to work with people who make work fun, so people are always
joking, people are playing fun pranks on each other. One of the things that I did
quite some time ago was put a whole bunch of flamingos on the dinosaur
sculpture, so I’m always particularly proud whenever I see the pictures show
up on the Internet of the dinosaur sculpture covered in pink flamingos. We’re always innovating in new areas. We’re always kind of asking ourselves the question of what’s the most
important thing, what’s the most interesting thing that you could do next?
How do we make a story that’s even better than the one that we have today? You get to build these things that are exciting. You can see the end results of
what you build right away. It’s just magic. And there’s no limit to the size
of problems that we can tackle. The limit is really just our imagination and our
ability to execute on it. That’s a software engineer for me.
