Work at Google

What is it like to do research at Google?

 

   Google is full of smart people working on some of the hardest problems in Computer Science.

Many Googlers have PhDs and come from a research background, but research is not treated as a separate activity at Google — research happens across the company, on many different teams. This means there is a blurry line between “research” and “product development.”

 

Engineering and research projects alike are done by small teams on a rapid schedule.

Most projects have time horizons of just 6-12 months, and aim to deliver results and iterate quickly. That said, for some higher-risk or longer-term projects, some research groups do work with a certain level of isolation – but even then, Google encourage organizational flexibility and the free flow of information within the company (and often outside of the company as well). Nearly all projects at Google are “bottom-up” efforts, started by a few Googlers who want to tackle a new problem. Google is very light on management. Google have more problems than it has people, so there’s always a big problem just around the corner waiting for someone to solve.
