The Chrome team is hiring designers and researchers. We'd love to meet you!Open Positions
Chrome is committed to Google's mission: to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. For us, that means a future for computing built on the open Web – where anyone can learn, work, play, find their community, and publish their work.
Our guiding principles are called "the 4Ses," which stand for speed, simplicity, security, and stability. These priorities center the people around the world who need a fast, approachable, safe, and reliable way to experience the web. To get there, our team doesn't only build Google Chrome – we also bring our work into the Chromium open-source browser project. You'll see our contributions across browsers from Microsoft, Samsung, Brave, Opera, and more.
We craft Chrome for Windows, ChromeOS, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android. Designers on the team typically focus on one OS at a time, so they can develop platform-specific expertise. Researchers and writers often focus thematically to help us understand and communicate across OSes.
A Global Purpose
Chrome for and with everyone
The Chrome UX team makes one of the most widely used software products in the world, so we cherish global perspectives. Our team is distributed across Google offices in Seattle, San Francisco, Mountain View, Los Angeles, Washington DC, London, Munich, and Paris. We welcome contributions to Chromium from open-source designers and developers all around the globe.
A Global Team
Everyone at Chrome
UX Design Lead - Chrome Trust and Safety
"Being a custodian of how people experience the web has been a true privilege. It’s rare to find a product with this level of impact to the world and a team whose clarity of purpose and commitment to doing right by our users is so woven into the day-to-day work. When I joined in the middle of the pandemic, I was concerned that onboarding would be difficult, but the team’s generosity and warm embrace have made me feel at home in a short amount of time. Never before in my career have I felt so inspired by my team or so empowered to do my best work."
UX Writing & Content Strategy Lead
San Francisco, California
“Working on Chrome Browser has been the highlight of my long career in software, not only because Chrome is a product that literally billions of people across the world rely on, but because the team of people who build it are some of the smartest, kindest, most creative folks I’ve ever had the privilege to work with. I’m happiest at places where I can learn something new and different every day and where I can be helpful and make meaningful contributions. From day one, I had opportunities to build my knowledge and expertise and bring my own skills to the table. The fun’s never stopped!”
"Chrome is a like a nice cocktail 🍹 of three things that are rare to find all in one place—a warm and compassionate team (from your day-to-day collaborators to leadership), a mission that is meaningful and fulfilling to work on, and an environment that cultivates personal and career growth. This gave me the opportunity to go from the most junior designer on the team to leading large work streams in less than a year. I couldn't have asked for a better team and product to kickstart my career with!"
UX Research Lead
San Francisco, California
"The reasons that I love my job are pretty simple: (1) We have the opportunity to impact billions of users every day. (2) That impact and responsibility challenges us to conduct rigorous research. (3) I'm surrounded by kind and collaborative researchers that are a joy to work with."
"It's a privilege to have been part of the Chrome UX team for so long. I've had the opportunity to work on areas as diverse as menu restructuring, loading indicators, tab management to permissions and of course the offline dino game. Every project presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities which can have a meaningful effect on the browsing experience of millions of users. Working with genuinely talented colleagues and the support from great managers makes Chrome UX a special team to be on."
Recent work from Chrome UX
Towards a more vibrant, open Web and a more safe, helpful browser
Link to highlights
You can create and share links which point to specific highlighted portions of web pages. A nice property of this approach compared to alternatives (like sharing screenshots) is that the people who receive the links will be taken directly to the highlight AND can then 1) scroll to read the rest, 2) see interactive elements, and 3) use browser tools like find-in-page.
Stay organized with Tab Groups
We hope that by making Tab Groups collapsible it'll be easier to reclaim some space on the toolbar and focus better on specific tasks. In research, we've heard about many different ways that people are using Tab Groups including some who found that grouping by priority works better than grouping by task.
Annoyed by sites that ask to send notifications? Our latest approach offers the choice between 3 different default behaviors: 1) sites can ask 2) use quieter messaging 3) don't allow sites to send notifications. If you're familiar with Chrome's pop-up blocking UI, you'll also recognize this "quieter messaging." It tries to strike a balance between being visible enough so that you can find it when you need it and less interruptive when you don't.
Create QR codes
Ephemerality is one of the Web's most magical properties. You can bounce from link to link without App store interruptions or slow install flows. But it can be burdensome to correctly type URLs (especially on small keyboards). We added tools so you can create your own QR codes for sharing, saving, printing, or sending. On mobile you can find this in the Share menu. On Desktop it lives in the omnibox (for now).
Autofill passwords in apps and sites
Chrome’s password manager bolsters security with password generation, phishing protection, and data breach detection. It's now also possible to use saved passwords across any app on iOS. This is particularly helpful if you want to use sites in Chrome on your computer and want to use the associated apps on your iOS device without typing passwords manually.
Add widgets to your iOS home screen
We published 3 new widgets for iOS to help people customize their Home Screens. The team explored discovery-related directions, but was worried that suggesting new content on the Home Screen could either be too revealing, or insufficiently useful. The final design focuses on elevating key functionality.
Caption audio and video
Captions make audio and video more accessible. You might need them if you're in a noisy spot temporarily or if you're one of the 466 million people who are deaf or hard of hearing. To help out when captions aren't available, Chrome can now create them in real-time.
Protect private notifications
Sometimes small details can make a big difference. We started hiding the content of site notifications received while screen sharing to help people keep their private notifications private. By turning this on proactively, we protect people from accidentally sharing private content with the wrong audience.
We're looking for people who have worked in collaborative, inclusive, cross-functional environments. Ideal candidates will have experience crafting product strategy and vision, tackling complex problems, and communicating clearly.
Interaction Designer - Password Manager
Munich, London, or Paris
Passwords are a critical part of safety on the Web. Chrome today can help people create, save and fill passwords to protect their accounts. In this role, you'll help evolve Chrome's password-related experiences across Desktop and Mobile operating systems so that people can rely on accessing their accounts on any device.
Interaction Designer - Web Platform
Munich, New York City, or Washington, DC
How can we make the Web platform more robust and capable? What APIs do developers need to build compelling, modern experiences? In this role, you'll join a team that's working with other browser vendors to evolve web standards and will create Chrome UIs that help people understand and safely manage the emerging capabilities.
Interaction Designer - Developer Tools
What new tools do web developers need to build reliable, fast, safe, and performant sites? How can they learn about new capabilities and best practices? How do designers, product managers and others folks use these tools? In this role, you'll join a team building the developer tools (DevTools) that are built in to Chrome.
Senior UX Researcher - Privacy Sandbox
Washington, DC or New York City
Chrome is building new privacy-preserving technologies (Privacy Sandbox), and we need to communicate about the work proactively. In this role, you'll partner closely with Chrome's product, engineering, design, research, policy and legal teams to create a content strategy for web developers, the press, and the public.
