From Academia to Industry (Google). I am PhD in Cyber Physical Systems with strong focus on systems and software architecture. I have 2 YoE in research after my dissertation and I would like to continue my career in industry (Europe). I applied recently for some manager roles but also developer type. Which kind of position it would be for me easier to get? I would like to work in Google (France) or similar. Someone with experience could give me some advice?

I can’t speak to the manager role maybe that’s easier. But it seems to me like that’s hard, as there are few job spots in that compared to coding.

I notice you mention research — not coding and delivering working software to consumers. That’s a red flag.

I suggest joining a smaller place that will hire you based on your intelligence and programming basics. After doing industry work for a few years (3+) you can then be much better prepared for google. If your focus is on Systems and software architecture, you need real experience in it.

I joined a startup after my PhD and honestly I leaned more about “real” software in a few years there than I did in the highly individual work I did as a grad student. They’re just different things.

Then again if you’re really good at whiteboard coding and leetcode just interview with google! Your PhD can get you an on-site. The code problems are the only hard part, a single failed problem and you fail the interview.
