You are a recognized expert in at least two security domains and use your leadership skills to manage a team that sets the direction and goals for solving Google-wide problems. You identify fundamental security problems at Google and drives major security improvements in Google infrastructure.
Within Security Engineering, the Enterprise Infrastructure Protection (EIP) organization protects user data by preventing attacks on Googlers, the systems they use and the infrastructure they rely on for access. The team advances the state of the art for security by building and motivating the creation of trustworthy computing infrastructure. Accounts, Identity, Security Keys, and Authentication Security is the focus for the EIP Identity team within the EIP organization.
