Google Is The #1 Company S'poreans Want To Work At - These Are The Awesome People They're Looking For

Last November, we published an article on the open positions at the Google Singapore headquarters.

As expected, the article garnered much traction, and we suspected that its very, very photogenic office played a big part in the general excitement surrounding the media giant.

Fast forward to last week, and Google just got official recognition for its popularity among Singapore employees – by ranking number 1 in a “people’s choice” survey by recruitment firm Randstad.

Over 5,000 employees and job seekers between the ages of 18 to 65 were surveyed, and Google came out tops in all nine criteria (including “work-like balance”, “job security” and “career progression”) Randstad used to determine a company’s attractiveness score. Coming in second was Changi Airport Group.

Here’s an updated list of the positions they’re hiring for, and where you can apply for them!
