Program Manager, Enterprise Architecture and Engineering by Google

Job Description

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 Program Manager at Google, you’ll lead complex, multi-disciplinary projects from start to finish — working with stakeholders to plan requirements, manage project schedules, identify risks, and communicate clearly with cross-functional partners across the company. Your projects will often span offices, time zones, and hemispheres. It’s your job to coordinate the players and keep them up to date on progress and deadlines.

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 Enterprise Architecture and Engineering team creates foundational technologies that help developers build secure and reliable applications.

Responsibilities:

  • Keep engineering teams organized, on track, and focused.
  • Oversee technical roadmaps of multiple engineering teams, break down items into milestones, epics, and tasks, and keep teams on track and accountable.
  • Manage tasks including sprint planning, task estimation, sequencing, and identifying blockers.
  • Communicate progress and issues to partner engineering teams and engineering leaders globally.
  • Identify and implement process improvements.
