With an air of humility, you bring strong quantitative skills, strategic thinking and sound business judgment, along with the ability to think about what is - and what could be.
The Corporate Development team drives Google's worldwide growth by identifying exciting acquisition and strategic investment opportunities, and then working to make them happen. Consisting of experienced merger-and-acquisition leaders, investment professionals, strategy and scouting specialists, and integration experts, we're dedicated to identifying the business opportunities of tomorrow. We find and evaluate acquisition and strategic investment opportunities across existing and future markets, drive management team decisions, lead agreement facilitations, and help manage post-acquisition integration and performance evaluation.
The Corporate Development team manages much of our worldwide growth. As a member of the Corporate Development Strategy & Scouting team, you will work collaboratively across internal functions (including Product, Legal, Finance, Go-to-Market, and People Operations) and external networks (investors, accelerators/incubators, service providers, and industry experts) to identify and evaluate both acquisition and strategic investment opportunities globally. You will provide the management team with the needed insight into markets, sectors, and individual companies to drive intelligent, sound decision-making. You will understand the industry landscape and trends, and harness them to enable product and agreement teams to effectively formulate their mergers and acquisitions and strategic investing approach.
