Google Work-at-Home Employment

A Work-at-Home Company Profile


Google Employment Profile

Based in Mountain View, CA, with more than 60 offices worldwide, Google employs around 30,000 people. The internet search giant is well known for its fabulous work space and employee perks. The main office includes medical, dental, and massage services; yoga classes; shoreline running trails; and free lunches and snack stations. So given the investment in its on-site work space, it's no surprise that, for the most part, Google employment is primarily on site.

However, there are a very small number of opportunities for work-at-home Google employment, but most are hired through a temporary agency. This profile highlights those opportunities.

Types of Work-at-Home Employment at Google

While there is huge interest in work-at-home Google employment, there are not nearly as many telecommuter jobs. In fact, there are only an extremely limited number of telecommuting positions at Google.

But the high interest in Google employment has sparked a number of work-at-home scams purporting to offer Google work-at-home jobs. That said, there are a few legitimate work-at-home Google jobs for an "Ads Quality Rater."

Ads Quality Rater Jobs

Ads quality raters are fact-checkers for Google’s formula, which is designed to determine relevant search engine results. As Google refines its algorithm, both as a way to return better search results and to stay current on how people use language and the internet, it needs people to check that the results it returns to users accurately answers their search requests. Google has search engines for countries across the globe, and therefore, hires quality rater positions for many different languages. A detailed profile of ads quality rater jobs includes information on qualifications and the application process.

These jobs are temporary and hired through an agency. Most positions require employees to be bilingually proficient in English and another foreign language. Employees work 10-20 hours per week on a self-directed schedule for the length of their 9-month contract. Responsibilities include evaluating the accuracy of Google web advertising and communicating the effectiveness of web layouts and information using an online tool.

Using Google's Employment Page

Sometimes Google advertises directly for these positions, so you can try searching Google's employment page using the keywords "ads quality rater" to find job postings. Often, these jobs are contracted out to other companies. There are also many other great companies that offer telecommuting opportunities.
