Google posts new Job Openings for Manila Office

When Google officially announced the opening of their Manila office, we saw a lot of buzz and thousands of people started looking for job opportunities with the company. Last week, they finally posted some job openings.

While the good news is that new positions are now available, the bad news is all of them are sales related that’s it’s all in just one department (Sales) and no other openings like in Search, Programming or Products (devices).

One new role was posted 3 days ago and labeled as Vendor Operations Lead (under Sales Operation) and they’re also looking for Vendor Operations Quality Manager (which is under Sales & Account Management).

Both roles require heavy sales background and a deep understanding of Google Adwords platform. This verifies our earlier story about what to expect from Google Philippines.

You can check out the full listings here.

    Why is it a bad news that the opening, so far, is only sales related?

    • Tae says:

      because not all job-seekers are looking for sales-related jobs. siguradong marami nang nagreact ng “ay sayang, sa sales palang ang opening.”

    • booboo says:

      So bad news na porket not all jobseekers are looking for sales related jobs? What if Google Manila would open programming related positions? Bad news din dapat yun kasi ‘not all jobseekers are programers’, too.

    • epiquestions says:

      It is bad news because there are no openings for job positions other than sales, so there’s no opportunity for people not in sales to get in…yet. Yes it would be bad news if programmers are the only positions open for the same reason i stated. It’s about the chances of more people being able to work at Google Manila and not because sales is an ‘unworthy’ job.

  2. benchmark says:

    it was said, google will be opening retail stores…

    baka yan na ang simula….

    (pero it was said, sa US daw muna…)

    “the bad news is all of them are sales related”

    this is not bad news. why do some people look down on sales. If there are no sales people doing the leg work, then there will be no income generated for the other jobs that you are waiting for…

    • booboo says:

      EXACTLY!

      It seems like the blogger puts sales people to the bottom class of the workforce.

    • yuga says:

      Apologies if there was a miscommunication. What meant in that sentence is that no other departments have available openings. I will rephrase it to be more clear.

      Btw, my day job right now is also in Sales.

    • Promise says:

      Dude! No other opening but sales. Yun lang yun. Wag mo na lagyan ng drama pa.

      Hindi lahat ng tao magaling sa sales talk.

      And i clearly did not see any implication that the article placed people who do sales in bottom of the workforce.

    • epiquestions says:

      I swear reading comprehension is at a decline in the Philippines….It is bad news because there are no openings for job positions other than sales, so there’s no opportunity for people not in sales to get in…yet. It’s about the chances of more people being able to work at Google Manila and not because sales is an ‘unworthy’ job.

    • Nancy says:

      Hay nako, mga critique nanaman ni yuga. Halata na kayo bawat post. Sa dulo kayo naman ang mali din sa reklamo, sana naman MAKA-INTINDI muna kayo ng sentence construction bago kayo mangreklamo.

      Sheez, umiiral kasi galit bago utak eh.

    • Bonchon says:

      Booboo manahimk ka nalang… Overreacting ka eh… Totoo naman mas mababa exprctation sa sales compared sa programmers kasi ang dali ng trabaho nyo pag kinumpara saming mga nagcocode. Pero di naman agad mababa ang tingin…kung maka react ka naman parang Napakalaking issue nito !

  4. jobseeker says:

    where there is sales there must be Human Resources.
    any news on that sir? thanks!

  5. YuYu says:

    this must be related to the the recent news that google is opening a string of retail stores.

  6. PointBlank says:

    You guys are too much with the whole news.

    Why are you making it negative. The bad news about the situation is that there’s no other job opening except sales. “Sana meron pang ibang opening para marami pa magka-work.” That’s how i understand the statement.

    Eomtional lang ng mga iba.

    “Just Saying.”

  7. gab says:

    Hindi ba nila kailangan ng accountant? Ng HR? Ng Company Nurse? Yan ang naiisip ko nung malaman kong sales lang kailangan nila. That’s what the statement means to me.

  8. exe says:

    more of sales pala ang office nila dito at hindi development?

    im from a sales account callcenter and was looking to try this out but not sure with how much their wage for their employees and the benefits. Is it worth it to transfer from a 5-year working experience in a call center to Google Philippines? Need to think more about this first

  10. floji says:

    I am sure that the budget for this acquisition is bigger than what call center offers. So if you think you have a chance,. go for it..

    goodluck on that..

  11. fandoid123 says:

    Kung sales yan ng adsense tyak pressured ang agent kasi palagay ko may quota yan. Wag ka nang mag resign sa call center kung may career path ka na sinusunod dyan. Bagong konsepto ang adsense sa pilipinas at kakaunti sa pilipinas ang nagpapatronize sa online purchase, mostly sa major cities lang. baka placement ng company adds sa google search tsaka google maps.

  12. techatbp says:

    sana tumatangap sila ng engineer. hehe

  13. wangpo says:

    mas focus sila sa google adwords.

    And the most important to determine regardless of whether it was a little about myself. Blood Beat Making use of a simple snack, like coronary heart attack than a beta blocker. Two days before the day helps the body.

  16. Marx Reyes says:

    As expected, developers and techs are not needed (hopefully, yet). This huge company is already established where their ITs and Developers loops on the Main Headquarters. And their branches on different parts of the world (including the one in Makati) are corporate offices ONLY.

    Hiring technical professionals have small chance. Siguro for office maintenance and networking lang. Far from that malabo talaga at siguradong madaming makikipagpatayan for the position.

    Research and Development(RD) hiring has big possibility, but mostly Google will be fishing for corporate/office positions.

    Sana talaga magkaroon ng Engineer vacancies.

  18. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get
    three emails with the same comment. Is there
    any way you can remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!
