Welcome to the latest edition of “My Path to Google,” where we talk to Googlers, interns, apprentices and alumni about how they got to Google, what their roles are like and even some tips on how to prepare for interviews.
Today’s post is all about Manav Mediratta, an Engineering Manager based in Bengaluru, India who made a career change after 25 years to follow his passion for AI.
How would you describe your role?
I’m an Engineering Manager on Google’s Silicon team, which develops software for Google’s hardware products — like Google Tensor, the chip used in Pixel phones. We keep Google’s research in AI and machine learning at the center of our work.
What does your typical workday look like?
My days vary, but I usually focus on growing our relatively new teams in Bengaluru and Hyderabad. I also work with teammates in Taiwan to make sure we’re on track to deliver new devices for our customers. Because we work in such a fast-moving industry, we need to stay on our toes every day.
