Google is an American company that is most commonly known as a search engine. Although the company made it’s name as a search engine, and the vast majority of its income comes from advertising because of this, it has branched out into a number of areas such as cloud computing, software and hardware.
Recently the company moved into the mobile hardware market by creating its first Google phone, called Pixel. The cloud unit of the company is called Google Cloud, which contains things like G-Suite, the company’s productivity applications like Gmail and Google Drive.
The company was originally founded in 1996 by Sergey Brin and Larry Page while students at Stanford University, California.
In 1998 the company was incorporated but then it held an IPO in 2004 to take it public again. In 2015, the company announced its plans to reorganise its many interests as Alphabet.
Google is the leading subsidiary of Alphabet and operates as an umbrella to its Internet interests. Following the restructure, Sundar Pichai became CEO of Google while Larry Page became CEO of Alphabet.

Google’s hiring process is an important part of our culture. Googlers care deeply about their teams and the people who make them up. We also care about building a more representative and inclusive workplace, and that begins with hiring. In order to truly build for everyone, we know that we need a diversity of perspectives and experiences, and a fair hiring process is the first step in getting there.
How To Search For Jobs In Google
Once you’ve taken some time to focus on what you’re looking for, you can get a better idea of who we are, what we’re about, and what it’s like to work at Google.
Our goal is for you to feel like you know us a bit better, and that you’ve got enough information to feel like you’re applying for the right jobs.
Check out our company and our teams sites. View our YouTube channel and our locations. Read our blog and how we care for Googlers. The goal here is the job or jobs you land on should exist at the intersection of who you are and who we are. So go, click around for a bit. We’ll meet you back here.
You should now have a better sense of who we are and what part of the company and role seems like the best match for where you want to go.
Keep your old resume next to you for inspiration, but start with a blank document and create a resume specifically designed for each job you want. For each position do the following to build your job-specific resume:
- Align your skills and experience with the job description. Tie your work directly to the role qualifications (and don’t forget to include data).
- Be specific about projects you’ve worked on or managed. What was the outcome? How did you measure success? When in doubt, lean on the formula, “accomplished [X] as measured by [Y], by doing [Z].”
- If you’ve had a leadership role, tell us about it. How big was the team? What was the scope of your work?
- If you’re a recent university graduate or have limited work experience, include school-related projects or coursework that demonstrate relevant skills and knowledge.
- Keep it short. We don’t have a length requirement, but concision and precision are key — so think twice before letting your resume move onto multiple pages, and take careful aim with your information.
A word on cover letters: they aren’t required (and may or may not be considered), so it’s your call on whether to include one. If you do decide to include a cover letter, many of the same suggestions we have for building a good resume apply here as well. For instance, tailor it to the job you’re applying for, tell us how you’ve made a difference and use data to back it up. Draw a direct line between your passion and our position, let us see who you are a bit.
Using the careers search tool, tell us who you are, what you do, where you’d like to be, etc. — then start looking at some of the listings that match. As you’re browsing, keep in mind that you can apply for up to three jobs every 30 days.
Sidenote: Most Googlers applied for other roles at Google before they eventually made it to interviews — not getting a role can often be a matter of timing, rather than a reflection of your skills or qualifications. So if things don’t work out with your first application, don’t let that stop you from applying to other roles in the future.
