Google Australia In Need Of Female Engineers

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Google is having a rough time finding female engineers to work in Australia. The article claims that Google has “hired more than 10 engineers from five ethnic backgrounds” in Australia, but not one of those ten were of the female gender. The issue with not having a woman as part of the Google Australia staff, according to Google, is that they won’t be able to match Google employees with the “same characteristics as our [Google’s] user.” So does this mean that Google is willing to pay more for a female Australian Google engineer?
