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.
As a Program Manager for the Business Systems Team, you will coordinate and execute delivery of large to medium projects and drive continuous improvement projects to enhance consumer experience and Google retail store operational maturity. The project efforts require a high level of coordination and meticulous project tracking, all of which needs to be led by this role. You will need strong problem solving, solid technical judgment, program management domain knowledge, communication skills to handle complex projects and develop solutions to support Google's growing hardware business.
