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 plan and coordinate transport networks, fiber, and co-location capacity for Google’s corporate enterprise network. You will also lead strategic discussions, technical creation, and infrastructure planning while managing relationships with executive technical and operational carriers, internet service providers (ISPs), and co-location providers.
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’re proud to be our engineers’ engineers and love voiding warranties by taking things apart so we can rebuild them. We keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.
Create metro- or region-level network strategies to provide resilient connectivity, meeting physical, and logical diversity requirements while balancing performance and cost.
Create and present business cases for long-term investments. Communicate and engage with internal teams.
Develop and maintain relationships to drive delivery with external vendors, engage on strategic initiatives, and create an understanding of market conditions for each region.
Manage complex projects and programs by applying proper change management, risk management, and stakeholder management practices. Initiate, develop, and drive adoption of improvement and efficiency processes across functional areas.
Manage projects of high complexity, risk, and scope. Discuss multiple circuits in a package or in constrained markets with vendors.
