Everybody knows Google. Not everybody knows that they've had a presence in Singapore for a while now.
Google might have been here since 2007 but this is the first time the company is actively recruiting for a large number of openings.
They're now hiring an unspecified number of software engineers to fill their first local large engineering team.
When Google first established their offices here in 2007, it was mostly focused on marketing, sales and business development. The hiring of software engineers marks a change in direction for the company's local offices as it aims to make the Singapore branch into one of its engineering hubs.
Singapore's not alone in being an engineering hub. Google has thus far established three of them; in Hyderabad, Sydney and Mountain View.
Being an engineering hub means that the Singapore team will be doing some heavy lifting work, actively developing new software for Android and as well work with as next generation technology in fields such as mobile data management and commerce. The fruits of their labors will then be used in emerging markets like India and Brazil.
If your dream has always been to work for Google, there's no better time than to now to try to get your foot in the door by checking out Google Singapore's recruitment page.
