Googler Spotlight: Irene Chung

Irene is a Software Engineer in our Mountain View office. We spoke with her about the various products that she’s worked on in her career, her current role on the +Google+ team and why it’s important to “learn as if you were to live forever.”

What were you doing prior to Google and what made you decide to apply?
Before Google, I was a software engineer by day and an aspiring animator by night. I was working in tech coding middleware for embedded systems, but I wanted to be a part of creating something bigger and more visual. I loved the storytelling genius of creative companies like Pixar and the wonder each of their projects created. Just as I completed my character animation degree and was ready to change careers, Google gave me a call and convinced me that tech could be a brilliant medium for positively impacting the world.

How would you describe your role on the Google+ team?
I’m a technical lead and manager for the Google+ frontend team. Every day, I get to bring engineers together with product and user interaction experts to build cool things that matter. The other part of my job is helping teams and individuals reach their potential. All parts rock.

What's the most interesting project or challenge that you've worked on?
Early on in my 20% time, I co-wrote a scheduling system for our massage program. That project eventually formed a basis for the appointments feature in Google Calendar. Google is exactly the kind of place that provides avenues of innovation and a chance to work with awesome people for those who look for it. 

What have been some of your most memorable moments of your Google career?
I’m thankful for having the chance to see whole teams come together to build Google+. On launch day, I remember being knee-deep in the details watching all the graphs going way up with the rest of the team and taking a pause to reflect on how amazing that moment was. And then we all had donuts.

Recalling memorable moments really brings new appreciation to the whole experience. When I first joined Google, I expected to be here for maybe two years before taking off on a new adventure. It’s been over three times that prediction, but every turn has been a new role and new opportunity. Every year or two when I get that itch to do something new, I find that I already am.

What advice would you have for someone thinking of applying to join your team?
Given the technical ability, it’s then about attitude. Learn as if you were to live forever. Make the right commitments and deliver on them. Ensure that your quality and quantity of execution are both top-notch. Find the right solutions for real problems. Focus on impact. Brush your teeth. And be a pleasure to work with.
