Python has been used at Google since the very beginning, and it
continues to be used, although some of the more performance critical
stuff is in C++.  New code _is_ being written in Python (in fact, I do
all my work in Python) and it's being used exclusively to deal with
some large sets of data.  Email me if you want more details.
