Earlier today, Google announced plans to open a new engineering office in the Pittsburgh area. The announcement was made this morning at a press conference at Carnegie-Mellon University.
The new Google office will be primarily focused on engineering, research and development, and is part of our worldwide effort to build engineering centers in locations where there are great engineers. We plan to hire about a hundred people for the new office in the coming years. We have not yet settled on a permanent facility in Pittsburgh but are exploring a variety of options.
In addition, we also announced the hire of Andrew Moore to lead our Pittsburgh operation. Andrew joins Google from Carnegie Mellon where he was a Professor of Robotics and Computer Science and co-founder and Director of the Auton Lab.
Google’s Pittsburgh 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 fill a variety of technology and engineering positions and have already begun recruiting efforts for software engineers.
Google prides itself on hiring the best and brightest and is encouraging qualified applicants to begin submitting their resumes on our website at www.google.com/jobs.
