FAANG hiring expats directly for US location

Sep 28, 2019 14 Comments

Hi guys,
I am an Indian working in Data science and Analytics field. I have worked across Singapore and Dubai. I wanted to know if any of FAANG or other tech companies like Airbnb,Quora etc. hire expats directly to the US office. I have seen few of my acquaintances join the India/Singapore office, work there for 1.5-2 years and then move to US. I myself have received offers from Google and FB for their APAC and EMEA offices but never US.
Has anyone seen their friends/ acquaintances been hired and sponsored Visa directly for the US office?

    Please stay away from US. People see only high TCs but not shady visa denial practices and decades of wait time for permanent residency. Too much stress build up over time.

      Tbh I think they're pretty much only here for the high TC. It's why I'm doing this miserable job.

    Somewhat useless comment. But also for my notifications.

    If I haven’t filed for a GC yet, can I be called an expat? Why does it sound better? 😐

      I have generally seen them hire only the folks who have a valid US Visa.

    Very tough in this climate. I think you’re better off putting your energy and focus where you’re at than trying to come to US.
