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.
As a Program Manager, you’ll keep an innovative engineering team firing on all cylinders. You will work closely with software engineers, product managers, and ODMs/OEMs to get high-quality products built, tested, and released on time. You’ll coordinate lots of fast-changing, moving parts and still get them to come together as a product. You’ll need excellent communication skills to be the center of the universe for all questions about schedules, quality, and progress updates. You are responsible for identifying and managing risks, making sound judgments about quality, and stopping (or speeding up) production at the right time.
