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.

These priorities include launching reporting capabilities to help customers meet various sustainability goals, establishing operational and engineering excellence within the team and with many cross-functional leaders, stakeholders and product areas, as well as improve foundational technical and data capabilities to support future product development. Additionally, you will take part in helping to build capabilities that will be leveraged by our customers to make sustainable IT decisions and reduce our customers cloud carbon footprint.
