Lenoir, North Carolina
Google hires the most qualified individuals from around the world. We make it a priority to hire from the local community whenever possible because it‘s good for business and the right thing to do. Find available positions at our data center.
If you are vendor or are interested in providing a service to Google, please provide additional information through our supplier interest form. In addition, we contract with our vendor G4S for security at all our facilities. Frequently, G4S hires regionally for open positions on their website.
Who keeps our corner of the Internet running? We asked a few Googlers about a day in the life at the Lenoir data center.
Rachel Mitchell, Hardware Operations
When she's not repairing the servers that keep Google products up and running, Rachel Mitchell is rocking out to Aerosmith and getting around on a scooter through our Lenoir, North Carolina data center's floor. “It's so big, we ride from end to end,” she says. “I love that I'm a part of something so huge.”
In her free time, Rachel likes to participate in zombie marathons—5K runs through the mud where runners encounter zombies (other people) who chase after them. “You can be one of three runner groups: the appetizer, the main course (that's me) or the dessert (the slowest runners).”
Jon Rogers, Environmental Health and Safety Technician
Environmental health and safety technician Jon Rogers applies a floor-tile-grabber (which he promises is the actual name of the tool) to the floor to check the status of pipes underneath. When asked what it's like to work at a Google data center, he says, “What amazes me about our data centers is that they power Google for the world, and they never turn off." Besides making sure the North Carolina center complies with all safety regulations, Jon is involved in the community and has helped award several grants to local schools.
