Google quietly announced the end of their hiring pause. The memo originally stated that many teams halted the search engine in “a few areas” which will now be able to start hiring new employees once again.
The tech giant google is conducting an internal memo and the aforementioned process of unfreezing its hiring freeze. These areas are in “a few” and the memo does not yet have a date for when it will end to employees.
Google Cloud plans to “complete” the unfreezing of employee hiring in some areas this fall.
What makes Google so great as a technology company is that they’re constantly moving towards the right direction. They may still be working on restarting certain hiring within Cloud Platform teams as of September, but it’s only because leadership is constantly trying to stay ahead of the curve rather than rest on their laurels.
Calder said in a memo obtained by CRN that “we plan to complete this process by the start of October.””
Google added 10,000+ employees in Q2 and increased the headcount by 310% year-over-year.
In July, Google’s parent company Alphabet temporarily paused all hiring. CEO Sundar Pichai said it was because they wanted to focus on prioritizing high-quality staff over quantity.
The company reported that it will be reducing its hiring and sharpening its focus during the second quarter, as reported by Business Insider.
Despite the companywide hiring freeze that Google has initiated, it looks as though Google would still be hiring technical talent with the launch of its cloud platform.
“We are still focused on hiring engineers, technical, and other critical roles,” Pichai added.

In the second quarter of 2019, it seems Google plans to focus on hiring a few key people rather than hiring lots of people. The company predicts that actions like this will become more apparent in 2023.
“Our hires will reflect the fact that the company has already made a lot of commitments, including new graduate hires.” Said Porat.
