Backroom Tour of Google and LinkedIn Headquarters in California

The winner and a guest will spend the weekend in San Francisco, California touring the headquarters of some of the biggest names in tech: Google and LinkedIn.

In Mountain View, CA, the winner and a guest will be guided by Maryam Ahmad, a Network Program Manager, on a private tour of the ‘Googleplex’—Google’s impressive global headquarters. Described as “luxurious” by Business Insider, Google’s offices boast 500,000 square feet, organic vegetable gardens, a basketball court, putting greens, as well as “nap pods” for when employees find themselves in need of a break. The visit includes lunch in the employee-only gourmet cafeteria serving “insanely awesome” food. The Googleplex was featured in the 2013 film The Internship, and was the inspiration for the fictional Hooli headquarters in the HBO TV series Silicon Valley. See some of the unique creative spaces, art, and architecture here.

LinkedIn’s 26-story “tricked out” headquarters in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood offers sweeping city views, art installations on every floor, a massage room, a band room, and rooftop patio. Roxane Bal, Senior Insights Analyst, will guide the tour.

The winner’s visit to California includes $500 towards a stay at any of Marriott International's San Francisco properties (including the Ritz Carlton) and $800 towards airfare.
