Our culture

It’s really the people that make Google the kind of company it is. We hire people who are smart and determined, and we favour ability over experience. Although Googlers share common goals and visions for the company, we hail from all walks of life and speak dozens of languages, reflecting the global audience that we serve. And when not at work, Googlers pursue interests ranging from cycling to beekeeping, from frisbee to foxtrot.

We strive to maintain the open culture often associated with start-ups, in which everyone is a hands-on contributor and feels comfortable sharing ideas and opinions. In our weekly all-hands (“TGIF”) meetings – not to mention over email or in the café – Googlers ask questions directly to Larry, Sergey and other execs about any number of company issues. Our offices and cafés are designed to encourage interactions between Googlers within and across teams, and to spark conversation about work as well as play.

Let’s work together

We’re always on the lookout for new Googlers.
