As a Commodity Manager, you use your wide industry knowledge and strategic supplier relationships to optimize our total cost of ownership for our global -- and growing -- infrastructure. The scale at which Google operates means that savings on just one piece of hardware can have a huge impact on Google's bottom line.

In this role, you will work on the custom supply chain for fast-paced consumer devices. You will execute the team’s material acquisition strategy, and work closely with Engineering teams to ensure material and part availability.

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. Our Devices & Services team combines the best of Google AI, Software, and Hardware to create radically helpful experiences for users. We research, design, and develop new technologies and hardware to make our user's interaction with computing faster, seamless, and more powerful. Whether finding new ways to capture and sense the world around us, advancing form factors, or improving interaction methods, the Devices & Services team is making people's lives better through technology.


  • Develop and execute global supply chain strategies and serve as the escalation point for all supplier-related issues in mass production.
  • Drive suppliers to ensure material availability and readiness for development builds and mass production.
  • Manage supply chain through the whole product life cycle from new product introduction (NPI) to end of process (EoP).
