Are there any teams in Google, such as GCP, which are hiring new grads with a security clearance(TS/SCI )? Also are there any bonuses for said clearance, like at Microsoft and AWS? Thanks in advance!

    AWS will be your best bet if clearance is active you are good to go. Others I don’t know

      I already have offers from Azure and AWS, I’d just like to see what else is out there in regards to Big N companies.

      We call it FANG and Amazon happens to be part of it. That being said, you definitely should try to go for Google.

      Lol Big N sounds so weird!
      FANG or N or Netflix

    Just curious, can't you make use of your security clearance to do something more interesting than being a software engineer?
    How about working for FBI (as a special agent) instead of FB?;

      Working for a vendor is much more interesting than working for a contractor or directly for the government.

      Vendors pay significantly better. I also don’t want to work on the super secret and really cool stuff, there’s a level of paranoia with that which I don’t want.

    Also: Would a position be more likely in Seattle, Mountain View, or Reston?

      I would guess positions requiring clearance would likely be located close to Trump.

      Ah okay, I got cleared positions in Seattle for Azure/AWS and was hoping it would be the same for google.

      For cleared roles in the DC metro area - Microsoft has a Reston location. Amazon has Herndon and Arlington (HQ2)

    Are there bonuses for having security clearance? Never heard of that, hope they're sizeable (>50k)

      Depends on the clearance and If you’re on call. For Microsoft it’s 25% of you base salary, paid out quarterly. Amazon is 45k also paid out quarterly.

      Amazon pays quarterly. 10K/yr for one level of clearance, 20K/yr for a higher level of clearance, or 45K/yr for the higher level with on-call.

    Great OP! Are these offers are not good enough? Since you already have an offer, you probably on the timeline to accept it?

      Oh they’re definitely good enough, I just wanted to see what else was out there. I have a two week window so I doubt I’ll be able to complete the entire process with google (Passed the first screen and haven’t set up a phone call yet)
