Google is recruiting for app developers in Singapore.
The new recruits will form part of the “Next Billion Users” team and will work with other Google developers in Mountain View, Sydney and Hyderabad.

Google is concentrating hard on mobile and emerging markets at the moment. Last year, the company said it will make getting affordable smartphones to emerging markets a priority going forward.
Over 1 billion smartphones are expected to be sold in the emerging markets of Brazil, Russia, China, India and Indonesia in the next 2 years, and commentators have pointed out that if Google can ensure that the majority of these new smartphones are running its Android operating system, it will have over a billion new customers using its search and advertising services.
