New Google Safety Engineering Center in Munich

June 2019

Google is planning to more than double the number of its software developers in Munich to more than 1000.

The Internet giant opened an engineering center in the Bavarian capital in 2006. Google Vice-President of Engineering Wieland Holfelder praised Munich for its “first-class universities, state-of-the-art infrastructure and vibrant start-up and development ecosystem.”

In May, Google opened up its Safety Engineering Center (GSEC). Its focus is data protection. Munich software engineers are also working on the company’s browser, Chrome, and its cloud services. Google Dashboard was developed in the Bavarian capital. The IT giant also has centers in Hamburg and Berlin.
