I got this interesting e-mail from Mansi Maihar, who claimed to be the “Technical Sourcer” of Google.com Engineering Team:
“It is an exciting time at Google and we are always looking for the very best talent to join us. In a gist, I am looking for engineers for multiple positions like Director, Manager and engineers with Unix Sys Admin and SW background with strong coding skills. Being responsible for running the Google.com website should be an absolute challenge for any Engineer.
We have multiple positions in various locations in the US and Europe. If this prospect is of interest to you, please get in touch with me as I will like to share your resume with the hiring engineers to see if there is match. You may also know engineers with this skill set who are looking for fresh challenges; I will appreciate it if you will pass my contact information to them. I would really appreciate if you can attach your updated resume and let me know which position and location is of your interest.”
I verified carefully, and I’m quite sure that this isn’t spam. The mail was actually “signed” by Google.com, and it was sent from a computer at Google’s Mountain View office.
Just to have an offer from Google is now considered an honour… so I’m honoured. I’ll try replying this person, let’s see what happens.
