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.

The Program Manager role in Google's Energy and Location Strategy (ELS) group is at the core of preparing for the continued growth of Google's Infrastructure. You will play a pivotal role ensuring that the datacenter infrastructure is carefully planned and sourced in a time, place, and configuration which is ideal for serving Google's users.

Your role sits at a nexus of capacity planning, technical planning, site selection, project execution and business analysis. As the Program Manager, Edge Planning, you are comfortable driving large projects which span several teams and can think critically and strategically about Google as a business and as an operation.

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.

  • Bachelor's degree in Technology, Engineering, Science, Economics, a related field or equivalent practical experience.

  • 4 years of experience in consulting, program management and tools/process development.

  • Experience managing network architecture or technical infrastructure programs.
