Is it just my network, or is Google (India) hiring a LOT of people in these 2-3 months?

Noticed a lot of posts about joining Google in a very short time. Did they significantly ramp up hiring, or lower the bar?

  • Well the CEO is Indian. What do you expect? No head count in the US but a lot in India

    • The same applies for Eastern Europe though so why the discrepancy

      Logistics and economics of scale. Top 1% of a 1B population country is more people than top 1% of a 100M country. Makes sense to invest in infra in a place where you can get more engineers. I'd even say China would be better than India, but unfortunately Google is avoiding expanding in China.

    • Roughly 300 million people in eastern Europe which is more than enough 😊

      India is the future. Google India develops a lot of products for Indian markets, which are far more complex that EU and even US. There's no niche market in eastern EU unfortunately.

      Is this going around within company dashboards? I'm kind of on the verge of getting an offer from Google India, but now I feel bad that it's not *special* anymore 😒

    • India is the prime focus for many tech companies and not just Google. Google has opened new product areas in India which never existed before and hence the aggressive hiring. That haven't lowered the bar so no reason to feel bad. Good luck with the offer!!

      Most offices won’t be special anymore. e.g Japan, singapore

    So settle for 4x less people and take on the complications of working with multiple country governments.

    • You're assuming 100% literacy rate in India ? LOL

      Roughly 8% have a college education in India so that's like 80 million who would be eligible in India based on that fact alone. Now how many actually did CS? Not to mention working in a country which has a higher cost of business than a majority of Eastern Europe

      You might have a point there. I don't have the stats to either agree or disagree with you on this.

    • In any case, discussing this is moot. Have a nice day!
