About the job

Our PeopleDev team works hard to ensure every Googler has access to the resources they need to become their best personal and professional selves. We leverage tools, technology, and innovative formats to scale learning and support Googlers at all stages of their careers — from Noogler Orientation, to manager training, to leadership development, and more. We have four key beliefs about learning — that it is personal, social, a process, and happens in real life — and we infuse these beliefs throughout the wide array of learning and development opportunities at Google. As a PeopleDev team member, you'll always be thinking about new ways to help others grow, and you share a passion for empowering Googlers to unlock their full potential.

The People Development team works to strengthen Google's performance and culture by preparing Googlers to successfully navigate their most critical challenges. We leverage expertise, engaging content, tools, technology, and innovative design to scale learning and support Googlers. We're a team of individuals passionate about helping Googlers unlock their fullest potential through high-impact learning programs, organizational development consulting, and customized solutions.

As an Analyst in People Development, you'll be part of a team that makes our data universally useful, reliable, and accessible for our internal stakeholders and partners across People Operations. You'll use analytics to solve problems, build data and dashboards solutions to drive insights and automation, and perform deep analysis to drive performance and strategy. You'll think ahead strategically while acting tactically. Additionally, you'll contribute analytical, problem-solving, and project leadership skills, a bias towards action, and a passion for data, innovation, and driving impact.

Great just isn't good enough for our People Operations team (you probably know us better as "Human Resources"). Made up of equal parts HR professionals, former consultants, and analysts, we're the advocates of Google's colorful culture. In People Ops, we "find them, grow them, and keep them". We bring the world's most innovative people to Google and provide the programs that help them thrive. Whether recruiting the next Googler, refining our core programs, developing talent, or simply looking for ways to inject some more fun into the lives of our Googlers, we bring a data-driven approach that is reinventing the human resources field.


  • Build and maintain critical data infrastructure for PeopleDev including back-end data tables, data pipelines, and dashboards.

  • Work across PeopleDev teams and understand all PeopleDev data including learning programs, evaluation strategies, education reimbursements, and talent management.
  • Partner with PeopleDev teams to gain a rich understanding of business processes, analytical and reporting needs and gaps.
