Google hiring >100 in Seattle, watch out Microsoft

Google’s hiring surge this year will be felt at its offices in Seattle and Kirkland.

The company isn’t giving specific forecasts but one local manager indicated at least 100 positions will be added this year at the Seattle area sites.

Google now employs about 700 at offices in Fremont and at its Kirkland campus, where engineers are working on the Chrome browser and operating system, Google Talk, Maps and other projects.

A spokeswoman said the sites “will continue to hire aggressively in 2011, particularly software engineers.”

Google began hiring engineers in the Kirkland area in 2004 and opened its 180,000-square-foot campus there in 2009.
