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 Technical Program Manager at Google, you’ll use your technical expertise to lead complex, multi-disciplinary projects from start to finish. You’ll work with stakeholders to plan requirements, identify risks, manage project schedules, and communicate clearly with cross-functional partners across the company. You're equally comfortable explaining your team's analyses and recommendations to executives as you are discussing the technical tradeoffs in product development with engineers.

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 manage planning and execution of end-to-end Biometrics security and privacy features on Pixel devices. You'll work with cross-functional Security teams, Product Management teams, and external Pixel partners to make Pixel devices as secure as possible.

The Google Pixel team focuses on designing and delivering the world's most helpful mobile experience. The team works on shaping the future of Pixel devices and services through some of the most advanced designs, techniques, products, and experiences in consumer electronics. This includes bringing together the best of Google’s artificial intelligence, software, and hardware to build global smartphones and create transformative experiences for users across the world.

The US base salary range for this full-time position is $118,000-$172,000 + bonus + equity + benefits. Our salary ranges are determined by role, level, and location. The range displayed on each job posting reflects the minimum and maximum target for new hire salaries for the position across all US locations. Within the range, individual pay is determined by work location and additional factors, including job-related skills, experience, and relevant education or training. Your recruiter can share more about the specific salary range for your preferred location during the hiring process.

  • Plan and execute face/fingerprint security features on Pixel devices. Ensure biometric software and hardware for the Pixel product portfolio are secure from inception through release.
  • Work cross-functionally to execute on the overall authentication strategy and planned features. Collaborate with Security, Product Management, and Pixel System Software teams to deliver enhancements.
  • Drive planning and scheduling for major/minor milestones considering the overall project deliverables, triaging and prioritizing features and bugs, getting cross-functional support, and escalating as required.
  • Focus on the user experience and advocate for Pixel security and quality internally and externally to ensure we maintain a great product experience.
  • Seek out all necessary schedule inputs, develop a solid, defensible plan for software development release, and keep the team tracking to it. Spot, track, and communicate key risks and help identify solutions to mitigate them.
