About the job
The Legal Investigations Support (LIS) team handles requests for user data received from Government agencies, courts, and parties in civil litigation. LIS handles a high-volume of these legal requests, processing them through complex policy and workflows.
As a Partner Support Operations (PSO) Program Manager for Legal Investigations Support (LIS), your mission is to hold vendors and partners accountable for meeting operational targets through governance and metrics refinement, ensuring Google remains an effective data custodian in outsourced compliance workflows. When operational problems arise, you will lead the root cause analysis and monitor progress of follow up actions.
In this role, you will work closely with LIS leads to define business needs for outsourcing in light of operational milestones and workflow priority. You will work closely with the training and operational forecasting teams within your silo and with the Quality Assurance (QA) function to execute on operational priorities and drive quality through outsourced workflows.
You are the liaison point between your team and the partners supporting its workflows – you will help lift the operation to the next level of performance. Depending on business need, you will contribute to expanding the operation to new vendors or sites. You manage components of the team's overall operational strategy, including outsourcing decisions, contract agreements, vendor selection and continuous improvements of procedures. In the context of this role, you might at times be exposed to legal investigations involving sensitive personal information or graphic descriptions of criminal activity.

  • Align frequently with the LIS Policy Team and be able to analyze how a change in policy/workflow will impact outsourced workflows and resource needs.
