Since its founding in 1998, Google has grown well beyond the search engine launched by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in a university dorm room. It's now one of the most ubiquitous tech organizations in the world, with products including the Chrome web browser, Android mobile operating system, AdWords revenue builder, YouTube, maps and satellite images, Gmail, and file-sharing cloud solutions.In 2022, Google announced its adoption of a hybrid work model, requiring most workers to be in the office three days per week, but it has also offered 100% remote opportunities in the past. In addition, the employer has supported work flexibility with part-time, freelance, and temporary jobs in fields like internet & ecommerce, engineering, project management, software development, and administrative. Google also offers a range of benefits to eligible staff. Despite its enormous growth, the company strives to maintain its collaborative startup culture and encourages employees, or "Googlers," to contribute ideas. Google celebrates the benefits of diversity and actively facilitates it by supporting education and community outreach to train the next generation of multicultural technology talent.
Through the years, Google has remained consistent in its mission to make the world's information more accessible, organized, and useful. Beyond this mission, the company is committed to corporate responsibility. Google is the world's largest corporate purchaser of renewable energy, and its operations have been carbon-neutral since 2007. Google products enable a secondary impact by allowing businesses to decrease their environmental footprint with more efficient communication and operational tools.

"I’ve been working as a freelance writer for 20 years, but the load of work had finally been drying up, so I started to look for an additional job. With my writing work I was able to travel abroad quite often while writing and wanted to continue the same lifestyle. FlexJobs made it much easier to find remote work in a new field."
