Google's projects, like our users, span the globe and require managers to keep the big picture in focus while being able to dive into the unique engineering challenges we face daily. As a Technical Program Manager at Google, you lead complex, multi-disciplinary engineering projects using your engineering expertise. You plan requirements with internal customers and usher projects through the entire project lifecycle. This includes managing project schedules, identifying risks and clearly communicating them to project stakeholders. You're equally at home explaining your team's analyses and recommendations to executives as you are discussing the technical trade-offs in product development with engineers.
Using your extensive technical and leadership expertise, you manage projects of various size and scope, identifying future opportunities, improving processes and driving the technical directions of your programs.
As a Field Reliability Technical Program Manager, you'll work closely with Advanced Technology Introduction (ATI) experts to align our cross-functional reliability methodology, and Supplier Quality Managers to establish Manufacturing Process Control Plans to ensure that the highest level of Quality and Reliability is consistently delivered. You'll collaborate with Global Commodity Managers to connect field performance measurement back to manufacturers that can relate to their field performance systems, Data Center Operations teams to provide scalable data collection requirements, and Business Information Technology and Solutions teams to incorporate use cases into BRD's for Project Life Cycle Management, Project Management Tracking, and Enterprise Resource Planning systems.
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.
