Excited, she packed her bags and reported for duty. Her impressive work performance saw her quickly rise through the ranks over time. She was soon appointed the public face of Google's project Google Glass.
Google Glass is a computerized pair of 'smart' spectacles equipped with a camera and internet. Amanda Rosenberg's Google Glass role caught the attention of most tech titans, and soon enough, she found herself interacting with Sergey Brin, one of Google's co-founders.
Sergey Brin and Amanda Rosenberg's affair
After Rosenberg found herself embroiled with Brin, the two became extra close and started an affair. Sergey Brin co-founded Google with Larry Page in 1998 after closing paths at Stanford University.
Google went viral in 2004. Interestingly, at the time of her affair with Brin, Amanda was also romantically involved with another Google employee, a high ranking member of Google's Android team, Huggo Barra.
Barra was in the dark about her love interest's fledgling affair with Sergey. But, since Barra was planning to move to Hong Kong to accept a job with a Chinese cellphone company, he asked Amanda to accompany him.
Unfortunately, she turned him down. Even worse, she broke things with him months later. News of their affair surfaced after Brin's then-wife, Anne Wojcicki, found emails between the two that did not sit right with her.
Following the affair, Anne Wojcicki moved out of their home, and they split in 2015. The romance is also said to have caused some problems between the two Google co-founders.
