Working at Google New York (NYC)

New York is constantly reinventing itself. Take the Meatpacking District: it used to be known for its working slaughterhouses and packing plants. Today it’s known for the High Line, restaurants and fashion boutiques. With that approach to innovation, we realized in 2000, this city is the perfect place for Google and where Google careers could thrive.

Our “office” back then: the Starbucks at the corner of 86th Street and Columbus Avenue. It’s 14 years later and we own our very own building, a humongous brick structure that used to be part of the Port Authority. Taking up an entire city block in Chelsea, the space allowed more room for team growth and more job openings in NYC. Perks- and design-wise, we’ve brought it up to code with four amazing cafeterias, scooters for the hallways, fake subway grates and old-time N.Y.C. telephone booths. Oh, and did we mention the full-service (and full-size) dessert truck parked on the 8th floor?

We’re home to more computer engineering jobs than any Google location outside Mountain View, offering positions in software development, software testing, network engineering, and many other roles. These software engineering teams worked on products like Search and Ads, Maps and Apps – as well as on major R&D and infrastructure projects, a grand variety of computer science jobs. We’re also the company’s North American sales headquarters, featuring your not so typical sales job description. Google Sales clients include media companies and ad agencies, some of the most innovative and influential organizations around. Googlers in sales and account manager positions use their expert analytical and communication skills to help clients meet their goals.

We mirror the city, as a diverse bunch of Googlers who bring their whole selves to work. Celebrating our spirit of inclusivity, are dozens of active Employee Resource Groups – including our Gayglers, Black Googler Network and the Hispanic Googlers Network, to name just a few.
