Google Overview

Google LLC is an American multinational technology company that specializes in Internet-related services and products, which include online advertising technologies, search engine, cloud computing, software, and hardware. It is considered one of the Big Four technology companies, alongside Amazon, Apple and Facebook.
The staff at Google come from unusually diverse demographic backgrounds. The company is 35.4% female and 50.3% ethnic minorities.
