When you search the web using the phrase “Google healthcare jobs” you would not expect to see advertisements for data engineers, software experts, qualified computer science people and other IT related graduates. You’d probably expect advertisements for professional nurses, doctors, and other medical staff to work at Google workplaces.
However, if you read the advertisement you’ll find that Google is looking for people with medical knowledge and expertise or at least knowledge of how medical practices function. It needs healthcare savvy people to form part of groups developing programs and systems aimed at the healthcare community.
With this said, there are, however, also marketing and liaison jobs where your healthcare experience will trump the computer science requirement. We’ve had a look at Google as an employer and some of the Google healthcare jobs, summarized the information, and gladly share it with you.
