Google has announced the first female engineering position at its new business analyst job listings.
The job posting is for a senior software engineer who will be responsible for engineering and development on projects with the company’s core engineering teams.
Google has already been hiring female software engineers in recent years, including former engineer and founder of the company Valerie Voorhees, and it has also hired numerous female programmers to help run its data centers, which have grown significantly in recent decades.
The company says the new position will be in the Google Cloud team, where it plans to offer “innovative new ways to bring innovative cloud-based solutions to consumers.”
The Google job listing notes that the position requires an undergraduate degree in computer science, including some computer science coursework and research, and is expected to start in the spring of 2020.
Google has already had a number of female engineers in its software teams, including Sven Nyswander, who helped build the Chrome browser, and Rachael Lee, who joined the company in January.
