X is Alphabet’s moonshot factory where uncomfortably ambitious, world-changing ideas are developed and taken out into the world. X projects have the potential to transform the lives of billions of people and make the world a radically better place. For X to be successful, we have to repeatedly turn breakthrough technology ideas into products that solve large problems in the world, and create meaningful businesses for Alphabet.
Our still-confidential project is developing breakthrough technology for the global agriculture industry, with a particular focus on sustainability. We are looking for someone to guide system design, development, and deployment of our next-generation technology platforms. This person will work cross-functionally to assess viability and tradeoffs for new products and features, and has the ability to drive dispassionate decision-making within the team. The Hardware Lead may serve as a primary point of contact for technical discussions with both internal and external teams, and must be comfortable balancing both technical and business tensions, while ensuring proper design-for-manufacturing (DFM).
