Google Wants To Hire Over 6,000 People This Year, 2011 To Be Biggest Hiring Year In Company’s History
Recession? Google must not have gotten the memo. Today on the Official Google Blog, Google announced that they would execute the largest hiring surge in the company’s history. Google noted that before this year the most folks they had ever hired was a little over 6,000 people back in 2007. Google said that they would be hiring folks to do all kinds of things such as building a web-based operating system from scratch, instantly searching an index of more than a 100 million GB and even working on those cars that can drive themselves (still don’t get this one).
They talked about how bets they have been making on mobile, display ads, and the cloud have started to pay off recently. They noted that Android, their mobile OS, now runs on over 100 devices with more than 300,000 activations each day. They also mentioned that the Chrome browser has at least 120 million active users and last year more than 1 million businesses switched to Google Apps and embraced its 100% web approach. And oh yeah they made search instant, even if on your mobile.
Google says it will be hiring in almost every field imaginable and they think there is something at Google for everyone—from geo, to enterprise, to video—with most of the work done in small teams, effectively working as start-ups. So with the economy being the way it is, Google has openly said that they are hiring. The question is who thinks that they are up for the challenge?
