Home | Google Adding 1,000 Jobs in Durham, NC

We received incredible news for the Triangle area coming in the form of jobs. Google announced its plans on Thursday, March 25, to create a hub in Durham for engineers working on its Google Cloud products. As it stands today, there are already hundreds of employees working on this initiative. Whether you’re relocating to the area for a position or are already living in the area, New Homes & Ideas has incredible communities in Durham ready for you to check out.

Google said that it is already recruiting for the new site and plans to employ 150 people by the end of 2021. The company said it will aim to add 300 more employees next year and 500 more in 2023. When it’s all said and done, the site will eventually support more than 1,000 jobs and serve as one of Google Cloud’s top engineering hubs.

The Google service uses cloud-based computing to help companies with a range of needs including managing databases – including everything from collaborating remotely to running business applications.

Temporarily, the company will operate in leased space in downtown Durham, while simultaneously scouting out other locations to call its permanent home. Durham was chosen as one of several places around the country where Google is planning new locations, and also has an office in Chapel Hill.

“Today is an exciting day for Google Cloud in North Carolina. We help businesses and organizations digitally transform, and to meet this challenge, we need the most talented team possible and the Triangle region has some of the best and brightest engineers in the world,” Google Vice President of Engineering Marian Croak said.

While this is obviously great news for the Bull City, it also means new residents might be moving to the area in the coming year for jobs.
