On Tuesday June 5th 2007, Google had an officewarming party to unveil its new offices on the 26th floor of the Levinstein Tower in downtown Tel Aviv. Google has job openings there and that's where you come in.
Not Just for Developers
One of the misconceptions in Israel about hitech is that it only concerns programmers and other computer experts. The available jobs at Google Israel (also here in Hebrew) are a good counter-example with both the Haifa and Tel Aviv offices needing Recruiting Coordinators and various business managers along with…uh…programmers and other computer experts. In fact, the new Tel Aviv address currently has no less than 12 positions up for grabs. If the number of people at Tuesday's party is any measure of the new Google space, there will be other openings to follow.
Comfy Chairs to Fill Over the Mediterranean
Although not as impressive as the famed Googleplex in Mountain View, California, the new Google Israel location may yet set the standard for the Israeli hitech workplace. If you didn't already have enough Oprah-acclaimed reasons to want a Google boss, the Tel Aviv office also has a view of the sea, something neither the Mountain View nor Paris offices have according to Ouriel Ohayon and Google Maps. David Hetfield took some good photos and caught the Bialik Cafe. Yaron Orenstein of the.co.ils also took a lot of pictures between the plasmas and lava lamps to give you an even better idea of what to expect when you arrive for your first day on the job. Good luck!
