Google's mission is to organise the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.
Since our founding in 1998, Google has grown by leaps and bounds. From offering search in a single language we now offer dozens of products and services—including various forms of advertising and web applications for all kinds of tasks—in scores of languages. And starting from two computer science students in a university dorm room, we now have thousands of employees and offices around the world. A lot has changed since the first Google search engine appeared. But some things haven’t changed: our dedication to our users and our belief in the possibilities of the Internet itself.
Google Australia started with just one person in 2002, and has grown to over 1,500 people over Australia. With more than 700 software engineers in Australia, our local team works on products like Google Maps, Chrome, Photos and more. Google is committed to helping Aussies find new ways to collaborate, reach audiences and get things done.
