Amit Singhal, Google’s head of ranking team, Google Fellow and the person responsible for Google’s search algorithms is leaving the company on 26 February. In a blog post on Google+, Singhal wrote that he will be concentrating on his family and philanthropy after this. He completed 15 years at Google this year. He said, “Now is a good time to make this important life change. Things are in amazing shape. Search is stronger than ever, and will only get better in the hands of an outstanding set of senior leaders who are already running the show day-to-day.” Oh what a journey! Fifteen amazing years at @google. Time for me to take the next turn. https://t.co/TjZhFG1bm6 — Amit Singhal (@theamitsinghal) February 3, 2016 Singhal also added that over 1 billion people relied on Google search and that the company’s mission of ‘empowering people with information and the impact it has had on this world cannot be overstated.’ Interestingly, in 2012, Singhal said that ‘working for Google is like having a 100 computer science research departments at your beck and call’, according to this Business Insider report. “Someone thought of a car that would drive itself. And Google said, ‘Why not?’ We're just going to go there, and we'll figure everything else out there in the middle,” he added.
