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.
The Platforms System Software team builds system software stacks (e.g., firmware, kernel drivers, system control, etc.) that power Google’s compute, storage, and Machine Learning (ML) fleet. Platforms System Software products provide the foundation key to the functionality, performance, and reliability of Google and Google Cloud services.
The Platforms Software Technical Program Management team, which is a part of the Platforms System Project Management Organization, partners with Platforms System Software, Technical Infrastructure, Engineering, and Operations teams to deliver system software stacks for a broad roadmap of systems, hardware, and software products.
Google Cloud provides organizations with leading infrastructure, platform capabilities and industry solutions. We deliver enterprise-grade cloud solutions that leverage Google’s cutting-edge technology to help companies operate more efficiently and adapt to changing needs, giving customers a foundation for the future. Customers in more than 150 countries turn to Google Cloud as their trusted partner to solve their most critical business problems.
Lead system software development for our computing platforms (e.g., Intel, AMD, and ARM servers).
Drive planning, engagement, and prioritization with Platforms Software teams and partners across teams (e.g., Google Cloud Platform and Technical Infrastructure) and product areas (data centers, Kernel, Borg, Google Compute Engine).
Provide technical program management support for roadmap and resource planning in server software areas.
Use technical knowledge and judgment to identify opportunities and drive initiatives to improve software quality and velocity.
