Google will hire 100 more people by the end of 2021, the company announced today.
The new hires will help the search giant boost its workforce by 10 percent, with the most senior roles coming from outside the United States.
The company also announced it will open a new office in Singapore, which will be its second international office, to bring its total number of international employees to over 200.
The company plans to create new jobs in China and South Korea as well.
Google’s workforce has grown over the past several years, from 9,000 to around 13,000 employees, but the company has struggled to fill its global workforce.
That was partly due to the ongoing recession, which hurt the company’s margins.
In its annual report to shareholders last week, Google highlighted the need for more people in the United Kingdom, Germany, and France, but also highlighted the company as an example of growth in its ability to grow globally.
“We will continue to grow our workforce globally, but we must also ensure that our workforce is ready for our future and our customers’ expectations,” the company wrote in its report.
