Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technology 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.

The role: Technical Program Manager, Cloud Services Decision Support

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 member of the Operations Decision Support team, you will lead cross-functional projects and drive mission-critical initiatives in the optimization of one of the world’s largest and most powerful cloud infrastructures. You will develop data-driven strategies and decision support tools to forecast, plan and optimize compute and storage capacity at all levels: machine, cluster, product group and fleet-wide. You will work closely with quantitative analysts, software engineers, site reliability engineers, and service demand planners. Beyond solid program delivery and technical skills, you should be a professional with experience in both quantitative analysis and the software engineering required to run web services at scale.

Preferred qualifications:

  • M.S. or PhD in computer science, electrical engineering, operations research, industrial engineering, statistics, or related technical field.
  • 6 years relevant work experience, 3 years industry experience.
  • Experience leading cross-functional project teams through strong problem-framing and problem-structuring skills, project management skills, and the ability to communicate insights and “so what’s” to highly technical management teams.
  • Some familiarity and experience with advanced analytics such as advanced statistical methods, optimization, simulation and stochastic modeling.
