Google Jobs in São Paulo and Belo Horizonte

For now, the vacancies open to apply for a position at Google in Brazil are for work in São Paulo and Belo Horizonte. Candidates will be able to apply for positions in a hybrid or 100% remote model, depending on the position. In addition to areas such as security and privacy, Google is looking for Customer Experience professionals, engineers and vendors who work with Google Cloud products.

In a statement, Google Brasil states that the new hires are an important step towards maintaining Brazil’s leading role in research and development of used products around the world.

The company says that every 10 results that appear in a Google search, one was impacted by the work of Brazilian engineers in Belo Horizonte. Some of the products developed by the company’s national team include the results of matches of various sports in the search engine, and also the results when searching for the term “Symptoms”.

Berthier Ribeiro-Neto, Director of Engineering at Google for Latin America, highlights that the Brazilian team was instrumental in creating the informative search panel on COVID-19, which is used worldwide, gathering data from the WHO (World Organization for Health).

“This investment in the country is a reflection of the impact produced by Google solutions ‘made in Brazil’, an impact that will only increase with the arrival of new talents”, says Ribeiro-Neto.

Google will encourage candidates from the black community

With the opening of new vacancies and the effort to expand its operation in Brazil, Google will encourage the hiring of black people through channels dedicated to increasing representation in the company. The president of Google Brazil, Fábio Coelho, said that the measures reinforce the technology company’s commitment to the country. He added:

“Today, Brazil is one of the most important markets for us, appearing among the ‘top 5’ in the list of the company’s nine products with more than one billion users. Investing in local talent helps us to have a ‘Brazilian look’ for these products and, at the same time, shows the world the innovative capacity of our professionals, as we are talking about solutions used globally.”

Google Brasil has its own initiatives for the black community involving open positions in the Engineering sector.

“We believe that investing in racial equity and inclusion in the job market is urgent and should be the responsibility of all organizations,” said Daniel Borges, Google’s Recruitment leader in Latin America.

In Google’s hybrid work model, the employee will work three days in person at the company’s office, and two days at home.

The number of hours to be completed in person may vary according to the area of ​​the vacancy or the needs of the function, but there is the possibility of any employee asking to change the work model to be 100% remote. The company warns that, due to the pandemic, going to the Google office is optional for everyone.

If you are a self-identified person of color, simply search for jobs labeled Black Community Inclusion on Google’s Careers page — where all candidates can apply for available positions.
