Unlikely. There’s so much good talent already in the US, and it’s a lot easier to sponsor visas if you are a student or already on a work visa. Your best bet is to try and get a job in your home country and transfer over.

Depends of a lot of things such as 1) type of role (eg. Engineer or tehchnical more likely), 2) country of origin (eg. I know Canada/Mexico and Singapore for instance have specific working visa easier than H1-B if you profession qualifies). If not, H1-B is hard to get and low chance of success (~1/3, it’s a lottery) so most US firms won’t spknsor it unless employee is either a) H1-B transfer from another US conpany or b) one of the other types of visas mentioned above. You could also attempt to join in your local country and Google could sponsor you a L1 after couple years. Lots of ifs and buts, so no guarantees. For reference, I came to the US as a Canadian on a TN and process was a breeze. Google then sponsored my change to H1-B and Green card.
