Lifestyle Perks Program Manager

Google - Sunnyvale, CA4.3

Google operates on a global scale, but each office seeks to emulate the same Googley feel of our Mountain View, California home base. As a Lifestyle Perks Program Manager, you build consistent, outstanding workplace experiences around the world. You design, implement and manage Google's service offerings. You're a great communicator who is comfortable taking on complex projects with a diverse set of stakeholders. You believe that great isn't good enough. You bring an analytical mind to constantly improve the efficiency and efficacy of your projects, from building new workplace tools and applications to mergers and acquisitions. You get satisfaction from knowing your clients are happy, healthy and productive, and are excited about joining a fast-paced, collaborative team that is reinventing what a workplace can be.

The Lifestyle Perks program helps Googlers disconnect from work and connect with their families, local communities and other Googlers. Googlers are passionate about everything ranging from macrame, to backcountry hiking, to ukulele lessons, to farmers markets and our team aims to make it easy for Googlers to engage in their passions and connect with other Googlers. We organize and deliver curated events and services both on campus and throughout our local communities ranging from arts and crafts classes to weekend family events and provide platforms for Googlers to share their passions with other Googlers in peer-to-peer classes and activities.

In addition to fostering connections through the Google community, the Lifestyle Perks team also offers services to reduce everyday friction in Googlers’ lives via time and money savings. Our team manages Google’s corporate discount program, coordinates onsite amenities ranging from passport services to haircuts and manages Google’s museum and sporting event ticket programs.
