Phoenix Office Opening

October 12, 2005

Today we announced plans to open a new engineering office in the greater Phoenix area. The announcement was made this morning at a press conference with Governor Napolitano at her office in Phoenix, AZ.

"This is another positive step for Arizona. Google, as a company, represents the right kind of player for the new economy we’re building – one that values education, new technology and the future," said Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano. "I’m thrilled they’ve chosen to locate here."

The new Google office will be primarily focused on engineering, operations and IT support functions and is part of our worldwide effort to build engineering centers in locations where there are great engineers. We plan to hire hundreds of people for the new office in the coming years and have set up temporary offices in Phoenix to begin building out our local team. We are currently considering a variety of options for more permanent facilities, including occupying existing office space or perhaps building our own offices.

Google’s Arizona office will offer all the world-class workplace amenities that Google has become known for such as outstanding healthcare benefits, free lunches, and competitive compensation packages. We are looking for a range of new employees to support a variety of business and technology operations and have several job postings listed on our website already.

The positions currently posted range from software engineers, to field technicians, network security experts to operations and IT support staff. Google prides itself on hiring the best and brightest and we’re encouraging qualified applicants to begin submitting their resumes on our website at
