About the job

Google's projects, like our users, span the globe and require managers to keep the big picture in focus. As a Program Manager at Google, you lead complex, multi-disciplinary projects. You plan requirements with internal customers and usher projects through the entire project lifecycle. This includes managing project schedules, identifying risks and clearly communicating goals to project stakeholders. Your projects often span offices, time zones and hemispheres, and it's your job to keep all the players coordinated on the project's progress and deadlines.

The University Relations (UR) team engages with research and academic communities globally to deliver strategic programs to support university research and technical innovation. You will join a newly formed group within UR working to positively influence underrepresented groups’ expectations and ability to obtain a PhD in computing and pursue a research career.

As the Program Manager, you will have the opportunity to lead an education program through all aspects of the program management process, from research to design to implementation and measuring success as well as potentially scale-up existing or new programs (e.g., new partners, new platforms).

There is always more information out there, and the Research and Machine Intelligence team has a never-ending quest to find it and make it accessible. We're constantly refining our signature search engine to provide better results, and developing offerings like Google Instant, Google Voice Search and Google Image Search to make it faster and more engaging. We're providing users around the world with great search results every day, but at Google, great just isn't good enough. We're just getting started.


  • Identify strategies to broaden the participation of underrepresented students in computer science research pathways.
  • Develop, implement, and manage program strategy, planning, launch, and maintenance.
  • Work across Google’s research organization to foster buy-in and participation from researchers.
  • Track, analyze, and report on program efficiency and effectiveness.
  • Analyze trends, identify lessons learned, and propose recommendations for improvement and expansion.
