Google's projects, like our users, span the globe and require managers to keep the big picture in focus. As a Technical 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.
You will be responsible for overseeing major deployment projects while working with partner groups to create aggressive yet achievable plans. Your objective will be to organize the overall team, establish clear roles and responsibilities, and create a high-level workflow and resource plan while developing and owning the masterschedule. Among your many attributes you have a technical background in infrastructure, servers, routing, DWDM (Dense Wave-Division Multiplexing), and experience with colocation operations. You have communication and presentation skills as well as the ability to work closely and constructively with all areas of the business.
Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running. From developing and maintaining our data centers to building the next generation of Google platforms, we make Google's product portfolio possible. We're proud to be our engineers' engineers and love voiding warranties by taking things apart so we can rebuild them. We're always on call to keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.
