You will have the opportunity to source and lead new methods and structures to achieve carbon reduction goals across our global energy supply portfolio, interfacing with various external stakeholders.

Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running. From developing and maintaining our data centers to building the next generation of Google platforms, we make Google’s product portfolio possible.

We keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.
Identify financial and commercial structures to meet Google’s Cloudpath Frontend (CFE) and Net Zero objectives across different regions and technologies, including markets where direct procurement of carbon free energy by end-users is not currently possible.
