About The Job

At Google, data drives all of their decision-making. Quantitative Analysts work all across the organization to help shape Google’s business and technical strategies by processing, analyzing, and interpreting huge data sets. Using analytical excellence and statistical methods, you mine through data to identify opportunities for Google and its clients to operate more efficiently, from enhancing advertising efficacy to network infrastructure optimization to studying user behavior. As an analyst, you do more than just crunch the numbers. You work with Engineers, Product Managers, Sales Associates, and Marketing teams to adjust Google’s practices according to your findings. Identifying the problem is only half the job; you also figure out the solution.

Reliability Analytics is a group of data scientists and product analysts tasked with developing a comprehensive quantitative understanding of all aspects of reliability for Google infrastructure, systems, and products. This team has the mission of improving the robustness, resiliency, and recovery capabilities and dynamics of all Google infrastructure, and will develop these solutions using advanced data analytics, statistical machine learning, and high-fidelity mathematical modeling techniques. They apply data science and advanced quantitative techniques to solve data, modeling, and algorithmic problems for large-scale engineering systems.

As a Data Scientist working on the Reliability Analytics team, you will address complex investigations, solve profound problems for large-scale integrated technology systems, and make an impact. You will focus on designing and prototyping analytical/simulation frameworks and pipelines, designing and analyzing evaluation experiments, extracting signals, and drawing insights from massive data sets. Your work will proceed across all technology resource inventories and under realistic operational and deployment policies.


    • Design and prototype analytical/simulation frameworks and pipelines, and design and analyze evaluation experiments.
    • Extract signals and draw insights from massive data sets across all technology resource inventories and under realistic operational and deployment policies.
    • Provide critical inputs to both short-term tactical actions and long-term technology choices and strategies, and explore machine learning methods to better understand workload.
    • Apply advanced quantitative techniques to solve complex data, quantitative modeling, and machine algorithmic problems in large-scale engineering systems.
    • Explore machine learning methods to better characterize workload – statically as the capacity and its dynamic behavior under operational stress.

Google is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is an affirmative action employer. They are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, or Veteran status. They also consider qualified applicants regardless of criminal histories, consistent with legal requirements. See also Google’s EEO Policy and EEO is the Law.
