Google’s ex-head of search, Amit Singhal, go for Uber work. He is the head of the computer department of the taxi service.

That makes Singhal announced on his website. Singhal gave fifteen years of leadership to the Google department that was responsible for the search algorithm. He made in February 2016 known to stop at Google to focus on development work in his native India.

He put a onderwijsstichting on, but realized gradually that the problem of children to school more difficult than he thought. For the kids there actually get, had to Singhal a separate line set up.

That led to discussions with the Uber-CEO Travis Kalanick and knew Kalanick Singhal to seduce in order for Uber to come to work. “The more I learned about how Uber works, the more I realized that this is one of the most difficult – and therefore funniest – computer problems in the world,” writes Singhal.

Singhal is therefore the head of the department of computer engineering at Uber. In that capacity, he will be CEO Travis Kalanick and the head of the self-propelled-car-department Anthony Lewandowski assist.
