Watch out for Google Philippines! - YugaTech | Philippines Tech News & Reviews

Watch out for Google Philippines!




There was an entry at PTB about Google hiring Country Representatives for the Philippines over a year ago. That ad was there for the longest time and I thought it’s because either no one’s applying for such a high position or Google is just to picky.

So, I was surprised when Marc told me about his email correspondence with this lady who’s apparently the Philippine Marketing Manager (of sorts) for Google. He confirms the story here and posted job openings too.


 

And I thought if ever they did open an office here, it would be to get some Adsense rep to coordinate with local publishers. I guess there aren’t that many UPS Club members around here. :)

Still, this development is a real good news. Anybody here wants to work for Google Philippines?

    Is it just me or has anybody noticed the recent big 3 evelopments?. First Paypal (even if it’s half-baked), then Jim Griffith comes here and now Google sets up shop.

    I wonder what will come next? Good times ahead as Marc would say.

    Better start a web 2.0 company, get noticed, amass a large enough user base and get bought by Google…..

    Is there already a Google HQ here in the Philippines?

  6. Fortune calls Google America’s best employer for 2007.

    Most IT outfits here are sweatshops. A Google office in the Philippines would be a slice of Heaven in the pits of Hell.

    Is it really true they’re planning to setup a team here in the philippines?

    I received an email from a guy named Bruce last December 2006, using the google domain. He said he was aware of my credentials was asking for my resume. I asked if he’s for real and he gave me his contact numbers (in Mountain View, CA).

    I wasn’t able to call him, or send my resume til now. I still think it’s too good to be true. Watchatink?

    I’ve been looking around the net for developments on this one. Sad to say, I have not found any significant improvements, yet. If google will indeed set up shop here, it would probably be for data centers and software development, AFAIK google does not handle call centers.

  17. MLM says:

    is this even true? has google started shop already? I’ve been trying to get info on this? can anuone help where i can send a CV or visit their office? I have no idea where it is, if indeed google is already here. Please help.

    Hi, Googler, are you working for Google? My friend wants to get in touch with your company. May we get your phone and office address in Singapore, kung wala pa sa Pinas? Pwede kami pumunta dyan. We want to meet you guys, since we have a product that is based on the android program of Google. We want to see how we can partner with you. Please get in touch with me at [email protected]. Thanks,

  30. Messie says:

    If ever Google Philippines needs finance persons, I will certainly give it a shot. I tried looking sa Google mismo, but the only available jobs are for Google SG.
