About the job
A problem isn’t truly solved until it’s solved for all. That’s why Googlers build products that help create opportunities for everyone, whether down the street or across the globe. As a Program Manager at Google, you’ll lead complex, multi-disciplinary projects from start to finish — working with stakeholders to plan requirements, manage project schedules, identify risks, and communicate clearly with cross-functional partners across the company. Your projects will often span offices, time zones, and hemispheres. It's your job to coordinate the players and keep them up to date on progress and deadlines.
Our goal is to build a Google that looks like the world around us — and we want Googlers to stay and grow when they join us. As part of our efforts to build a Google for everyone, we build diversity, equity, and inclusion into our work and we aim to cultivate a sense of belonging throughout the company.
In this role, you will navigate organizational ambiguity, fuel growth and scale, as well as provide excellence to drive our biggest business decisions.
In this highly cross-functional role, you’ll problem-solve alongside our developers, customers, program managers, partners, and stakeholders. You will own and drive the priorities, Objectives and Key Results, and summits for our organization. You will collaborate with our leadership team and senior stakeholders across Google Cloud and Core to design and manage programs that scale.
