In early June we blogged about Google looking for large amounts of office space throughout the country. One location mentioned was Ann Arbor, Michigan. A great city that's home to the University of Michigan (Larry Page's alma mater) and an academic library that Google plans to completely digitize, Another new Googleplex? An off-campus location to scan books? Both? Whatever the case, Google is now looking for people to work at their Ann Arbor facility or facilities. This late September article from the Michigan Business Review has more.
Google has been looking for up to 40,000 square feet of space for the digitization project, as well as up to 250,000 square feet capable of housing a Googleplex, its name for a combined technology/call center.
At the moment, Google is hiring Service Room Technicians for their Ann Arbor location(s). Btw, Google also has a sales office in Detroit.
Postscript: Feel like reminiscing with Larry Page about his days in and around Ann Arbor. This alumni profile contains several of them and is also a good bio. What's his favorite Michigan memory?
