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 Resource Efficiency Technical Program Manager (TPM)/Program Manager (PgM), you will drive complex technical projects across Technical Infrastructure and Product Areas to optimize use of our data center infrastructure resources, support sustainable cost growth, and build solutions that increase efficiency with sub-linear headcount growth.

You will collaborate with peers across Storage, Compute, Site Reliability Engineering, Operations, Finance, and Product Areas to identify and build new avenues to realize efficiency gains in our resource management practices and codify these into sustainable business practices, from concept through design and execution.

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.
