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.
As a People Analyst, you will play an important role in helping to address People Operations data and the needs of teams and clients across the globe. You will serve as an interface to People Partners and provide answers to their questions and hypotheses about people and organizations. Your knowledge of People Operations data, along with deep business context, will enable you to provide action-oriented analyses to ensure that our leaders are well-informed and able to make thoughtful, data-driven people decisions.
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 great 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. Responsibilities
Build relationships and collaborate with HR clients and their teams to solve organizational problems by prioritizing work. Manage multiple workstreams and high-pressure situations.
Empower leaders and organizations across Google by providing high-quality data, reporting, analyses and insights.
Architect, develop and automate data solutions. Build and prototype models and dashboards to provide insights at scale.
Manipulate and analyze large data sets to gain insights and connect disparate ideas into cohesive, well-grounded recommendations using creative, structured and analytical thinking. Create effective, scalable and intuitive reporting solutions.
Use analytical reasoning to identify problems and develop hypotheses.
