Ever wondered what it would be like to work as a Google engineer? If so, this event is for you.
Google is bringing its “Sandbox” program to D.C. on June 21-22 — two evenings of “tech talks, access to Google engineers, and hands-on workshops.” It’s all intended to introduce underrepresented groups of engineers to Google’s work and, one imagines, vice versa. The event FAQ page suggests there will be Google recruiters present.
There will also be a healthy lineup of current Google engineers present to answer questions and guide the event. As of this writing the lineup includes Niket Agarwal, a software engineer; Michelle Morelock, who works on back-end systems; Carroll Morris and Seongbae Park, both site reliability engineers; and Samantha Schaevitz, who works on site reliability for Gmail.
The events will be held at Google’s D.C. offices near Union Station. Space is limited, though, so those interested in attending need to fill out a short application.
Applications are being accepted through Friday June 10 — so get on it!
