Bay Area software engineers get ready. Google is hiring.

January 31, 2011

In an effort to forge ahead and compete with Apple Inc., Google is on the move and recruiting in the Bay area. According to reports in the Wall Street Journal, the company is seeking software engineers and product managers that can give them an edge in the mobile market.

According to the Wall Street Journal, it’s nothing but a lucrative move:

World-wide, revenue from mobile apps is expected to triple this year to $15.1 billion, including paid downloads and advertising revenue generated by free apps, according to research firm Gartner Inc. Besides the potential of making money directly from such creations, more and better apps can help devices powered by Google’s Android operating system continue to gain ground on Apple’s iPhones and iPads.

Mountain View, Calif.- based Google is looking to develop applications for Android-powered products that will rival Apple’s iPhone and other mobile devices. It’s an effort to increase sales effectiveness and command leadership in the growing industry of mobile communication.

San Francisco Business Times reported:

Google could make money directly from apps developed in-house, and also benefit from having more apps using its Android operating system, which would help Android-powered devices gain ground against those from Apple.

Android users currently have access to about 100,000 apps, compared with Apple’s app store’s 350,000.

Dozens of jobs have begun opening up in the field for Google in the Bay area. Where do you see Google’s ability to compete? How do you envision the professional landscape will look in 5 years for application developers?
