Hereï¿½s your opportunity to display the grace of the true professional in a reward-rich environment.
Google is looking for engineers with the programming skill to rewrite the worldï¿½s information infrastructure. The Google Code Jam 2003 is one way we hope to find them. Your participation in this contest gives us a chance to observe how you operate in conditions similar to the all-out environment within the Googleplex.
