About the job
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.
The New Product Introduction (NPI) team in the Advance Technology Development organization creates a consistent, seamless strategy for introducing new products into our data center while overseeing the execution of tech insertion globally. We ensure that NPIs are ready for consumption to supply chain, construction and operations, ensuring scale and quality, working across our Technical Infrastructure organization.
The Data Center Engineering Services (DCES) team currently includes the following objectives: NPI for data center products; Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) process development and liaison from data center product management and engineering to PLM in GDC operations; and document management (aka Knowledge Management (KM)) functions for engineering and potentially other Data Center Delivery and Engineering (DCDE) documentation.
We support the advanced technology product developments across all functional areas of a data center infrastructure and bridge engineering, supply, construction and operations. An NPI Technical Program Manager for the DCES team is responsible for influencing new data center hardware design, integrating into a data center configuration, tooling and automation for production.
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.
Become conversant in the Google infrastructure design road map and be able to communicate planned changes to the broader Technical Infrastructure and Google Datacenter organization, providing regular updates to senior leadership teams across multiple orgs and functions as liaison between Google data center supply chain and technical operations and be able to communicate and manage requirements across a variety of functional NPIs.
Engage in larger cross-functional programs from requirements gathering, creating program plans, implementing pilots, support testing, systems integration and data center enhancements and create and communicate mid to long term strategy for improving data center supply chain, operability, trend analysis, issue resolution, and compile ongoing service metrics.
Coordinate with design engineering to drive release of product design documents and information, write business and operational planning documents for the NPI project teams.
