Technical Program Manager, Silicon, Consumer Hardware
Google's projects, like our users, span the globe and require managers to keep the big picture in focus while being able to dive into the unique engineering challenges we face daily. As a Technical Program Manager at Google, you lead complex, multi-disciplinary engineering projects using your engineering expertise. You plan requirements with internal customers and usher projects through the entire project lifecycle. This includes managing project schedules, identifying risks and clearly communicating them to project stakeholders. You're equally at home explaining your team's analyses and recommendations to executives as you are discussing the technical trade-offs in product development with engineers.
You will be a member of the Technical Program Management team for the security silicon program. You will maintain the project schedule that is in line with the longterm objectives of the entire program, as well as the immediate near-term project deliverables. You will also execute on existing processes and identify the needs for improvements while resolving technical, cross-functional issues to drive consensus.
Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.
