Google Philippines formally opens local office

Google Philippines has formally opened their local office today and announced their first country manager, a position that’s been open since mid-2011.

The Country Manager for the Philippines position was posted in July 2011 but the assignment was based in Singapore. In 2012, they were able to find a candidate (Narciso Reyes, formerly of AdMax/Komli Ad Network) and by late last year, they’ve built a team to operate the local office.

The Philippine office is the 5th office in South East Asia where Google has local presence.

The local team is composed of veteran folks from Yahoo! Philippines, Rappler.com, and Ogilvy PR (for several months now, we’ve been hearing feedback from a lot of people that Google was massively hiring a local team).

The job openings/vacancies is mostly in sales, support and probably corporate communications as well. No development team, no editors or product managers (if you’re wishing for a local Nexus roll-out/subsidy, sorry).

Google Philippines will mainly focus on users, localization and advertisers. Most especially the latter (that’s Google Adwords, Adsense and DoubleClick for Publishers).

Check out our story on “What to expect from the Google Philippines Office“.

Update: Ooops! That was the office address of their PR agency, Team Asia.

  10. I read a local news article that they opened in The Fort, and will soon open another one in Makati. And, yes, they’re hiring!

    I’m not sure about Yuga’s policy on posting links from other websites but just google it to find out.
