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.
Our team develops algorithms that combine visual and inertial data to sense device motion, infer environmental geometry, and track moving objects. Our tracking stack powers ARCore on Android devices, VR/AR headsets, and a variety of other projects across Google. We are constantly working to expand sensing capabilities, broaden device support, and improve tracking quality and robustness.
Augmented Reality (AR) is rapidly evolving as an important new area in consumer products. The team is a fast moving group of engineers, designers, and research scientists tasked with building the platform and ecosystem for ground-breaking devices, apps and tools for AR/VR. You have strong technical skills and a dedication to building and iterating on software development processes.
The Google Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality team is a fast moving group of engineers, designers, and research scientists tasked with building the foundations for great immersive and augmented reality apps and prototyping novel, delightful user experiences.
