Google is employing innovative engineers, product managers, UX designers, and researchers to help achieve Google’s purpose by laying the groundwork for considerable development in the future years.
In their official statement, Google writes:
“We’re searching for skilled, creative, and collaborative people who can help tackle challenging and critical technological issues like enhancing the smartphone experience for people in Africa, or inventing products that will help everyone prosper together.”
Google’s African Mission
To assist Google to accomplish its objective in Africa, you must have a passion for tackling difficult challenges as well as technological talents. Understanding how people use their phones on a daily basis across the continent, as well as the issues they confront, can be beneficial.
According to Google, Africa will have 800 million internet users, accounting for one-third of the world’s population under the age of 35. Google’s CEO said last year that the company will invest $1 billion over the next five years on initiatives that would give Africa fast, dependable, and inexpensive internet.
Google aspires to create useful products that assist entrepreneurs and small enterprises, which are the backbone of Africa’s economies. As part of this commitment, Google established an AI research facility in Accra, Ghana, to aid in the development of valuable breakthroughs. The establishment of a product development centre in Nairobi is a continuation of this commitment.
As 300 million Africans get access to the internet over the next five years, this momentum will grow. Many of them are young, creative, and enterprising, and they’re eager to push new innovations and possibilities throughout the area.
