Our office is made up of a passionate group of folks who love to live and work in Pittsburgh. Each year, we host hundreds of students in our office for visits to talk about what life is like as a software engineer, and what’s exciting and interesting about computer science.”Kamal Nigam Engineering Director
Situated near the campuses of Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh, Google Pittsburgh collaborates with leaders in the fields of machine learning, computer systems and robotics.
Our Pittsburgh engineers work on products like AdWords, Cloud Platform, Search and Shopping, as well as on core machine learning, engineering infrastructure and tools.
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 $22.8 million in grants and employee-matched giving to Pennsylvania 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 two students to attend Gettysburg College and Ursinus College.
- Approximately $18 million in Ph.D. fellowships and Faculty Research Awards to universities and colleges in Pennsylvania since 2005 through Research at Google.
