Gulati has a long work history in processors, having previously been employed by AMD and Broadcom before spending eight years with Apple. Manu Gulati, a former System on Chip (SoC) architect who worked at Apple for the last 9 years developing Systems on Chips for the iPad, iPhone and Apple TV has now joined Google as lead SoC Architect. Gulati is also credited with being instrumental in the building of Apple's custom chip lineup, beginning with the A4 and so on.
Google may use custom chips in future versions of the Pixel. It is impractical to expect these chip makers to optimize their SoCs to work in ideal conjunction with the hardware choices available to the OEMs - they can get close and certainly do take some popular industry trends into consideration, but the issue persists. According to reports, Google is looking to add more chip designers to the team as well.

Future Pixel devices could soon feature Google-made chips thanks to a key hire by the search giant. It would also be able to better optimize its processors to save energy. On top of that, more SoC-related jobs have popped up on Google Careers, so it seems that Google is serious about creating its own chips.
We've reached out to Google for comment and will let you know if it can elaborate on the hire.
