Waiting for team matching after HC approval : Google Zurich : L4 SWE

Mar 1 14 Comments

I've passed Hiring committee three weeks before, but still no team has shown interest in my application. I have two questions:
1. How long Google offer remains valid without team matching after HC approval ?
2. Can someone from blind internally refer to his/her team (if you are aware of any internal opening) in Google Zurich ?

      Yes, it's a good comp in London. FB did not negotiate further even after disclosing Google Zurich option. However taxes are too high in UK.

  • I got hired as SRE-SWE. I got my offer letter but I was told team match happens a month before I join.

    Is there a chance of not getting a team match after getting the offer letter?

      This seems really weird, never heard of Google giving an offer letter without a team match ๐Ÿค”

    • True. Is the process different for SWE-SRE?

      Yeah. SRE process is different. Ask your recruiter about detail.

    Hey, I'm in a similar position. Did you find a team in the end?

    Isn't Zurich the hardest office to get into, especially if you don't have a European passport?

    I applied from Singapore. Why would it be any different?
