Finance Project Managers drive critical priorities for Google by leading and assisting in projects of all sizes. Drawing from your strong financial background, you work with a diverse team to manage projects from concept to implementation and keep Google-wide stakeholders informed as you go. You get down into the details of complex analyses without losing sight of the overall objective. When working on multiple projects at once, you intuitively know which issues to highlight and can bring key decision makers together to come up with effective solutions. Once a project is completed, you're able to clearly communicate the results and draw the key learnings for senior management. You are efficient and organized, making the most of everyone's abilities and holding the team to a high standard.

You will structure projects with your stakeholders, define project goals and risks to execution, gather comprehensive requirements and usher projects through the entire project lifecycle working closely with our Engineering partners. You will lead complex systems design, implementation, and integration projects leveraging your technical expertise.
