As a Technical Lab Program Manager, you are accountable for overseeing the program development and execution of the lab deployment services to support Real Estate and Workplace Services' (REWS) missions.

You will be comfortable working in a matrixed organization, building relationships in difficult situations, getting buy-in and consensus from colleagues with diverse opinions, driving decision making where trade-offs are required and keeping information circulating so that REWS can grow coherently as Google expands. Additionally, you will be an effective collaborator and enable Googlers team members and vendor partner teams to work coherently.
