Google looking for Executive Chefs

Posted on 5-Aug-2005 10:48 by M Freitas | Filed under: Blog


No, the big Search Engine and advertising company is not looking for CEO, CTO, CFO replacements. Google is looking for two chef de cuisine to make sure the free meals offered to employees are of the highest standards.

The company has sent out a press release and posted an entry on the official Google Blog explaining that they are now on a worldwide search for two executive chefs with the experience to manage the preparation of thousands of quality breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals each day at the company's Mountain View, Calif. headquarters.

The executive chefs will oversee the development and continual refinement of an eclectic menu capable of suiting every Googler palate, from vegan entrees to pad thai, grilled burgers, and wood-fired pizza-all while using organic ingredients whenever possible.

Qualified chefs are invited to submit their resumes to Google at jobs@google.com. When a critical mass of submissions has been received, the top candidates will be invited to Google headquarters to prepare a meal for the "tasting committee." Four finalists will compete in a Google Chef Cookoff, whose two winners will be offered the roles of Executive Chef at Google.

How cool is that? And I remember the cubicle days when coworkers used to eat tuna fish and rice while still working...
