Building great products depends on great people. There are more than 40,000 Googlers behind the tools that you use every day—from search to Chrome. Since the beginning, we’ve focused on providing the best user experience possible. Whether we’re designing a new Internet browser or a new tweak to the look of the homepage, we take great care to ensure that they will ultimately serve you, rather than our own internal goal or bottom line.
