A problem isn’t truly solved until it’s solved for all. That’s why Googlers build products that help create opportunities for everyone, whether down the street or across the globe. As a Program Manager at Google, you’ll lead complex, multi-disciplinary projects from start to finish — working with stakeholders to plan requirements, manage project schedules, identify risks, and communicate clearly with cross-functional partners across the company. Your projects will often span offices, time zones, and hemispheres. It's your job to coordinate the players and keep them up to date on progress and deadlines.

Our goal is to build a Google that looks like the world around us — and we want Googlers to stay and grow when they join us. As part of our efforts to build a Google for everyone, we build diversity, equity, and inclusion into our work and we aim to cultivate a sense of belonging throughout the company.

As a Data Center Construction Quality Program Manager, you'll work directly with our portfolio of general contractors, electrical/mechanical trade organizations, key integrators, fabricators, and commissioning agents to improve quality in our construction projects. You will engage in pre-qualification evaluations of potential vendors, update the project manual, communicate quality standards and expectations. You'll be involved in project planning/tracking, risk mitigation and on-time delivery. You will also serve as an interface to the process excellence and information technology teams who will depend on your project portfolio for best practices, establishing data feeds, fashioning metrics, and capturing lessons learned to help the organization scale efficiently.

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 keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.

  • Manage all construction quality processes with our general contractors, electrical/mechanical trades and commissioning agents.

  • Establish metrics to quantitatively characterize quality status for the full life cycle of the construction project.

  • Drive a quality culture that embraces both a “right first time” and continuous learning approach that improves project efficiency and quality.

  • Incorporate quality techniques such as Six Sigma, Lean, DMAIC, VSM, SIPOC, FMEA, and risk management to reduce variations/deviations in key performance indicators.
