How we hire

There’s no one kind of Googler, so we’re always looking for people who can bring new perspectives and life experiences to our teams. If you’re looking for a place that values your curiosity, passion, and desire to learn, if you’re seeking colleagues who are big thinkers eager to take on fresh challenges as a team, then you’re a future Googler.

FAQs

Does Google still ask brainteasers in job interviews?
Nope. Our data showed that brainteaser questions didn’t predict how well someone would do on the job so we no longer ask them. Instead, we do work sample tests and ask structured interview questions.
Do I need a computer science degree to be a Google software engineer?
No, a CS degree isn’t required for our software engineering or product manager roles.
Will you let me know when a job has been filled?
If you haven’t heard from us in two months about an application, we likely proceeded with other candidates for that particular role. However, our recruiters might reach out if we find a different potential match for your skills, interests, and experience.
Can I apply for multiple jobs?
Yes, you can apply for more than one role at once, though we recommend narrowing your choices down to a few jobs that truly match your skills, experience, and interests. We’ll review your resume/CV—and transcript for interns and new graduates—to determine the best fit.
What are the application deadlines?
Our job descriptions will include any application deadlines. For most of our openings, we accept applications on a rolling basis, and we encourage you to apply sooner rather than later.
I interviewed/applied last year and wasn’t selected. May I reapply?
For engineering roles, we ask that you wait a year—to gain additional experience—before reapplying.
Will recruiters be coming to my university?
We host outreach events at hundreds of universities all over the world to spread the word about our internships and opportunities for recent graduates. Check with your university’s careers center to see if a Google representative will be visiting your campus. And though we can't visit every school, you can find and apply for all of our open roles on our Students site.
What technical classes should I take to prepare for technical interviews?
A broad, interdisciplinary background, with a strong understanding of computer science, is the key to any job in software engineering, at Google or elsewhere. Our Technical Development Guide offers resources to help you develop your technical skills.
What if I need an accommodation for the interview?
No problem! We have a team dedicated to making sure you have the accommodations you need to interview. If you need for us to arrange an ASL interpreter, if you'd like your service animal with you, if you need your hotel to be wheelchair accessible, or if you have something else in mind, just ask your recruiter to connect you to the interview accommodations team. From there, you can confidentially discuss your accommodation options with a trained specialist.
