Google Hire can also be seen as the company's effort to get a lead in enterprise efforts.

What are your thoughts on Google Hire?

The development of the Google Hire job search service comes on the heels of the recent launch of Cloud Jobs, an API that can be employed by enterprises in order to integrate job application and the hiring tools in their platforms.

Called Google Hire, this platform is being described as an application tracking system which enables an employer to post job listings, and then accept, track, as well as manage applications.

Back in 2015 Google chief executive Sundar Pichai provided a high-level description of Bebop. Google Hire project is a part of company's enterprise and cloud division and is being headed by Diane Greene.

The service is already working; Warner Bros. subsidiary DramaFever and the startups Medisas and Poynt are among the organizations already using it as a hub for job openings.

Google Hire looks like a result of that merger, and clear clues support this theory. Also, the error message displayed on the Google Hire website instructs you to contact the Bebop team. For instance, the Google Hire website now yields an error message that prompts users to contact the Bebop team. The site compares it to rival services like Greenhouse and Lever. If Google can maneuver its pieces into place and plays its cards right, Google Hire has the potential to eventually give Microsoft's LinkedIn a run for its money.

LinkedIn is a huge bonus for Microsoft because it offers a direct door to most of the enterprises around the world, and every one of them is a potential customer for the Redmond giant's SaaS application portfolio.

The Bebop website is now advertising a small number of positions at the hire.withgoogle.com domain, which is where you can sign in for the Google Hire service.
