About our organisation
“Google is not a conventional company. We do not intend to become one. Throughout Google's evolution as a privately held company, we have managed Google differently. We have also emphasized an atmosphere of creativity and challenge, which has helped us provide unbiased, accurate and free access to information for those who rely on us around the world.” -Larry Page & Sergey Brin, Founders of Google
Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. And while we’re committed to building the perfect search engine, our work goes well beyond delivering accurate search results. The spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship that made our company a success right from the start underpins the work we do every day, from constantly pushing the boundaries of our products to researching alternative energies or devising new ways to interact with our clients. Personalised office space:
Our employees, who have named themselves Googlers, mean everything to us. Our strategy is simple: hire great people and support them in turning their aspirations into reality. Googlers are bright, passionate people with diverse backgrounds coming together to create a unique culture. One that fosters spontaneity and creativity, where accomplishments are recognised, and where the open exchange of ideas is encouraged, no matter what position you happen to hold. Working at Google is as much a mindset as it is a job! Googlers at work:
Contrary to popular belief, we don’t just hire engineers. In fact, we hire great candidates from all academic disciplines. Whether it’s developing new business strategies, enhancing customer happiness, building complex financial models or bringing products to market, there are plenty of graduate opportunities at Google that don’t involve algorithms. In fact, our work requires ideas from many non-technical fields including media, advertising, sales, marketing, business, communications and analytics.

Benefits and Culture
Though Google has grown a lot since it opened in 1998, we still maintain a small company feel. At lunchtime, almost everyone eats in the office café, sitting at whatever table has an opening and enjoying conversations with Googlers from different teams. Our commitment to innovation depends on everyone being comfortable sharing ideas and opinions. Every employee is a hands-on contributor, and everyone wears several hats. Because we believe that each Googler is an equally important part of our success, no one hesitates to pose questions directly to anyone, at any level, in the company. Eating in the café:
We are aggressively inclusive in our hiring, and we favour ability over experience - resulting in an incredibly diverse workplace. We have offices around the world and dozens of languages are spoken by Googlers, from Turkish to Telugu. The result is a team that reflects the global audience Google serves. When not at work, Googlers pursue interests from cross-country cycling to volunteering, and from flying to frisbee. Google Dublin at Pride parade:

Google’s European headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, serves users and advertisers across more than 40 countries and languages – from Finland to Germany and France to Israel. Our team reflects that diversity, making for a vibrant multicultural working environment. Teams in online sales and operations, technical teams, media sales, finance, legal and human resources all work out of Dublin. The Google EMEA Learning and Development Centre, also based here, provides innovative tailored training modules for our employees.
Nestled between the mountains and the sea, Dublin is a picturesque capital with an ancient history. Home to more than one million people, the city’s recent burst of prosperity has given it a new confidence: trendy boutiques, lively galleries and vibrant nightlife hum with an increasingly international and multicultural population. Yet, despite its rapid growth, the spirit of the people ensures that Dublin remains one of Europe’s friendliest and most accessible cities.
