Google Atlanta is the home of great STEM talent, innovation, and a thriving startup community. All of this is within walking distance to Georgia Tech. Googlers are proud to call Atlanta home.”Matthew Pritchard and Hetal Gordon Atlanta Office Co-leads
Google Atlanta opened in 2001 and moved to its current location five years later. It is a key sales center and southeastern hub—with a fun, colorful vibe and plenty of space for employees’ dogs to roam about.
Our sales team supports a wide variety of businesses from retail to the travel industry. Google Atlanta also houses engineers who work on critical parts of our North American advertising business and on the infrastructure that makes Google fast and reliable for billions of people.
Google in the community
We’re committed to playing a positive role in each of the communities in which we live and work. Since 2011, we’ve awarded $9.1 million in grants and employee-matched giving to Georgia nonprofits and schools in areas that we’re passionate about, including science and technology education, economic opportunity, and access to the Internet.
Google for education
We believe that every student and every educator, in every classroom, deserves the tools and skills that set them up for success in building the future they want for themselves. That’s why we’re committed to supporting students, partnering with educators, building products, and making impactful investments that help enhance and expand education through technology.
Because the importance of, and real world demand for, digital skills is only increasing, every student from grade school through grad school should have the opportunity to explore computer science and engineering. Whether or not they choose to pursue it, they should have the chance to be the creators—not just the consumers—of technology.
We work to positively impact the world through our products, programs, people, and philanthropy. Our local support for education efforts includes:
- Awarding scholarships to aspiring computer scientists from underrepresented groups—in 2017 to twelve students to attend Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia State University, Kennesaw State University, and Spelman College.
- More than $4 million in Ph.D. fellowships and Faculty Research Awards to Georgia universities since 2006 through Research at Google.
