Does Google hire or do any work in East Africa?

I am thinking of moving to Kampala or Nairobi next year and the tech sectors there are booming. I figure FAANG companies must have some presence in the region.

I would love to hear of anyone’s general experience working in tech as an expat or non-expat abroad!

The only office in Africa is in Johannesburg

Either way I suppose all those places are very far away from E. Africa 😅 That’s cool to hear there is some presence though and it’s potentially growing!

Does anyone have any experience with leaving Google then attempting to rejoin after 1 or 2 years? I read online that is mostly about your manager's feedback upon your leave, and that you could sometimes be easily accepted again and sometimes without an interview.

I am particularly concerned as I would only be working for a year and I don't know if that's enough time to get a good enough feedback.

P.s I am starting next month, but I know I might need to leave after a year for a family matter.
