About the job
At Google, data drives all of our decision-making, and our HR organization is no exception. The People Analytics team acts as an internal innovation lab, using analytical approaches to make sure Google continues to be a great place to work. The team provides critical support to the business around issues of organizational health and is responsible for not just taking the pulse of our Googlers, but harnessing Googler feedback to drive change for the better. As an analyst you'll be detail-oriented and conscientious, analytical and curious. You're a strong problem-solver, who uses both quantitative and qualitative methods to get things done. And on top of it all, you're someone who wonders "What if?" and then seeks out the solution.

In this role you’ll lead our cyclical performance analyses and reporting, collecting and analyzing data to evaluate Performance programs and pilots, and shaping the story we present to business executives and HR partners. Working with other analysts on the team, you’ll develop the analytics strategy and work on priorities across the Performance landscape, using data to address concerns and determining which factors contribute to broader performance trends so we can determine action and drive change through key stakeholders. You are excited by data and research, and have strong skills in data analysis, excellent attention to detail, and the ability to solve problems creatively.

Great just isn't good enough for our People Operations team (you probably know us better as "Human Resources"). Made up of equal parts HR professionals, former consultants, and analysts, we're the advocates of Google's colorful culture. In People Ops, we "find them, grow them, and keep them". We bring the world's most innovative people to Google and provide the programs that help them thrive. Whether recruiting the next Googler, refining our core programs, developing talent, or simply looking for ways to inject some more fun into the lives of our Googlers, we bring a data-driven approach that is reinventing the human resources field.

Own cyclical Performance reporting, including calculation, maintenance, and posting of key data such as promotion budgets, balancing data-centric acumen with the ability to surface insights.
Develop best practices for design, planning, and review of analytics work, including an efficient system for routing/prioritizing ad-hoc analysis requests. Evaluate effectiveness of our overall Performance cycles, advise and support on evaluation of programs (e.g., surveys, Key Performance Indicators).
Shape the performance analytics ecosystem and collaborate with other analysts on team for client-facing requests, process audits, and data design.
Partner with other relevant teams to create cohesive data sources and narratives for our stakeholders.
Be a subject matter expert on the performance data landscape and help up-skill Performance teammates’ analytics skillset.
