While there's no contractual obligation to meet your team in person in any of these roles, if you're nearby, you'll always be welcome in Google's offices.

So, without further ado, here are the best remote jobs available at Google this February. While we don't want to panic you, if one seems like the right fit, apply as soon as possible – many of the remote jobs Google made available in January are no longer accepting any applications.

Fully Remote Google Jobs Still Open in February 2024

Google has a job listing portal that includes all of the remote and in-office roles that Google currently has available. The “location” listed on these jobs refers to the office or area your role will be associated with, but this doesn't dictate whether you'll have to come into the office or not. If a role is labeled as “Remote eligible”, this means that it can be completed remotely.

As with any remote job at any company, the exact terms of your working arrangements will be at your manager's discretion – although most decent managers will want your input and opinions. Remember, if you're truly a good fit for the job and you interview well, you'll have the widest range of possibilities open to you.

In February 2024, Google offers 56 total jobs deemed “remote eligible”, which is slightly fewer than it was advertising in January. As well as the US/Canada-based roles listed above, there are remote jobs linked to offices in the Netherlands, Luxembourg, The UK and Italy now open.

Average Google Job Salaries

Like any other company, the average salary depends on the job role, responsibilities, and seniority. However, according to Glassdoor, the average Google salary “ranges from approximately $43,536 per year for a janitor/cleaner to $777,162 per year for a Senior Vice President”. So, it's a rather big range.

More specifically, according to Payscale, a software engineer at Google will earn between $84k and $178k, at an average of $124,920. A technical program manager (TPM), on the other hand, can earn between $105k and $185k, with average salaries hovering around $145,634. Google's data scientists tend to take home between $88k to $173k, while a software developer can make anywhere between $59k to $133k at Google.

Other jobs worth investigating at Google if you're qualified include the IT Program Manager role, which is salaried at $79k to $163k which makes for a $119,916 average. Additionally, senior software engineers at Google make between $113k – $212k, Payscale estimates.

Is Working Remotely Right For You?

If you're considering a remote job for the first time, you might have some reservations about it. It is a very different way to work than being in the office every day between nine and five. While there are some pitfalls to be aware of – including being overlooked for promotions – there are lots of advantages too.

For example, many parents have found remote working a complete godsend, as have those who look after their elderly parents or have mobility issues. For workers living on the outskirts of big cities, it's helped them claw back hours in commuting time every week which can instead be spent relaxing and recuperating.

In a way, remote work is a great leveller. Anyone from anywhere can apply for a remote job, and in most cases, they won't have to make the enormous sacrifices or life changes employees would have had to make a decade ago to land their dream jobs.

Now, you can secure a top role in New York without uprooting the life you've made for yourself in California – or vice versa – all thanks to remote work.

Although an exhaustive list is beyond the scope of this article, there are many more benefits to working remotely worth knowing about if you're still sceptical about the idea.

Does Remote Work Harm Productivity?

While there are some advantages to heading into the office – face-to-face collaboration is still the easiest form of communication – most studies show that there's remote workers are just as productive as their in-office counterparts.

Others even suggest the scales may have tipped further. One recent finding from Tech.co's annual inaugural Impact of Technology on the Workplace report is that companies offering remote working roles actually report higher productivity than those that didn't. But findings like this haven't stopped big tech companies like Dell and Amazon calling implementing return to office mandates.

Despite numerous studies that throw cold water on the idea that some managers and CEOs don't trust it. Luckily for you, however, there are lots of working-from-home productivity statistics out there you can use to try to convince your boss to let you work from home.

Working Remotely at Google

Google's official company policy is a “hybrid” approach to work – most staff, known internally as Googlers, are expected to be in the office two or three days a week. They can work remotely from home for the remaining two or three days, and the tech giant also allows staff to work completely remotely for up to four weeks a year. Of course, while the majority of employees are hybrid, there are fully remote roles available.

While Google is known across the globe for its trendy, imaginative office spaces, and new-age work perks, working remotely for Google is a slightly different experience to being in the office, where much of this is directly at hand. This is the case when it comes to most remote jobs for companies that have offices, however, and there is still a myriad of perks and support available for Google employees working remotely.

One employee commenting on Google's company profile on Glassdoor in January 2024 said that the company gave her $1500 to set up her own home office, while others praised the mental health support available and said the company was on a “different level” when it came to providing staff with benefits. Overall, Google has an average rating of 4.5/5 from current and former employees on Glassdoor – which is pretty impressive.
