An American multinational technology company that focuses on search engine technology, Google is looking to fill 200+ jobs in their cloud business.
Google is focusing on a project called Area 120. The company is hiring for its branch in Durham, in the northeast of England.
An engineering hub last year in Durham employees nearly 1,000 workers.
“We’re proud to have exceeded our hiring goals in Durham and look forward to continued growth,” Google said in a statement.
“The focus of staffing up the engineering hub in Durham will remain a priority,” added the company’s statement.
The constant changing and churning have resulted in half of the internal group project’s workforce winding down. Sources are to be believed, Google may soon ‘unfreeze’ their hiring to balance their staff out.
Earlier, Google executives have warned workers to either boost performance or prepare to leave. If third-quarter results don’t look up, ‘there will be blood on the streets.’
Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google, said he is not satisfied with the work output of many employees. According to Pichai, productivity at Google is below where it ought to be”
Google hired about 10,000 new employees in the second quarter and more who are committed to starting this quarter. The company has employed almost 164,000 people as of March 31 and has hired primarily in recent years for Google’s cloud division and new fields like hardware.
The company builds products that help create opportunities for everyone, whether down the street or across the globe. It is not entirely freezing the hiring. In the years 2022 and 2023, the company will focus the hiring on engineering, technical, and other critical roles.
During the meeting, Pichai was also asked about potential layoffs – a question he palmed off to Google’s chief people officer, Fiona Cicconi. Cicconi said the company did not have immediate plans to reduce its workforce but did not rule it out completely either.
