Commodity Managers work with Engineering teams to make sure Google has the supplies and equipment to put into production the innovative products coming from our Engineering teams. As a Commodity Manager, you use your wide industry knowledge and strategic supplier relationships to optimize our total cost of ownership for our global -- and growing -- infrastructure. The scale at which Google operates means that savings on just one piece of hardware can have a huge impact on Google's bottom line.
We work with external and internal cross-functional teams on strategic custom silicon programs from supplier selection to production, ensuring a robust and competitive supply chain for our products. As a Manager, you will use your wide industry knowledge and strategic supplier relationships to optimize the total cost of ownership for our products while influencing suppliers' roadmap to Google's technology and business needs. You'll develop and execute Google's sourcing strategy for our Silicon Foundry or OSAT partners, in support of Google's devices and services. Additionally, you will lead and participate on large and complex projects, as well as understand and resolve issues amid ambiguity. You'll also be a key part of an end-to-end supply chain team that drives continuous improvement and ensures operational excellence in support of Google's rapid growth.
