If aliens were to invade earth, or an earthquake lopped California into the ocean, Google wants you to know that it will still be there for you.
That's because a group of 10 Google engineers go around purposely breaking things at the company, under the most dire circumstances they can imagine, just to see what happens.
Through this process, the team makes sure that Google can keep itself running no matter what happens.
Sometimes this team makes Martians invade the earth. Sometimes they feign an earthquake or ecological disaster.
They strike their internal Google targets without warning.
This is Google’s renowned DiRT team, (Disaster Recovery Testing), led by director Kripa Krishnan (MIS Master's alumnae), who has perfected the art of breaking Google over the past nine years.
