(Dream) Job Hunting

For a couple of months now there has been an ongoing mass resignation in The Office. So much so that the HR has resorted to desperate measures, including catered food in the company lounge (yesterday we had sushi, although on bad days we are served peanuts and rock-hard biscuits). Now I'm not really inclined to leave anytime soon, but when half of your friends are leaving it makes you feel like you're being left behind, like maybe you should be leaving, too.

Now the thing is, I have long accepted the fact that admin is a bitch, but I love my technical work too much to care. And now that we have free food I couldn't be happier. In the end, it all boils down to the food. Never mind that I can easily afford it - nothing beats a free meal (or in this case, snack).

But since everyone is looking, I decided to do my own (mini) research. Who knows, maybe I can land either of these one bright, sunshiny day.

1. Google Hardware Engineer
BS or MS in Electrical or Computer Engineering or equivalent, with strong emphasis on computer system design. (PhD a plus)
Several years of hardware architecture, design, and bring-up experience.
Experience in shell scripting or assembly language a plus.
Knowledge of Unix/Linux or embedded environments.
Familiarity with high speed board design, devices and interconnect.
Experience with component-level and system testing is a plus.
Very high level of attention to detail; noticing and responding to contributory factors not part of the original design and test plan.

2. MacBook Hardware Design Engineer
BS/MS EE or equivalent with a minimum of 5 years of experience in the design and development of high speed digital and/or analog boards and systems.
Must have a solid understanding of the system development process including concept creation, schematics and board development, as well as board and system bring up and debugging.
Must have direct experience with one or more of the following technologies: Intel-based systems, high speed bus design for low emissions, low power design, industry standard protocols (audio and video, Firewire, USB, Ethernet, DDR2, etc.) and their design issues.
Must have excellent communication skills.
Experience with Mac-OS a plus.

Now if I get to be a Macbook engineer, there would definitely be a pink Macbook. Wait for it. In three years or so, because I lack experience points. ^^
