We’re the team that helps Google be

For over a decade, we’ve worked alongside hundreds of Googlers to support the company’s mission of organizing the world’s information and making it universally accessible and useful.

More than a decade in the making

Our Google partnership began in 2012, when we first embedded with Google Creative Lab. Today, Team Google at Codeword has grown to over 45 team members who provide creative and strategic support to dozens of Google teams across a wide variety of products and verticals.

From positioning Google as a leader in digital marketing with Think with Google, to streamlining the company’s internal comms with People Ops, our partnership has grown and evolved a lot since 2012. Scroll down to see a few of our biggest moments together so far.
