About the job
At Google, data drives all of our decision-making. Data Science Program Managers work all across the organization to help shape Google's business and technical strategies by processing, analyzing and interpreting huge data sets. Using analytical rigor and statistical methods, you mine through data to identify opportunities for Google and our clients to operate more efficiently, from enhancing advertising efficacy to network infrastructure optimization to studying user behavior. As a Data Science Program Manager, you do more than just crunch the numbers. You work with Engineers, Product Managers, Sales Associates and Marketing teams to adjust Google's practices according to your findings. Identifying the problem is only half the job; you also figure out the solution.

As a Data Science PM, you will utilize the power of Google data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, to deliver insights at scale that drive both long term strategy and daily insights for Marketing and Sales. You will also partner with different Google Engineering teams to develop automated customer-level insights, consolidating existing Google technologies and building new ones. You will leverage your product and business experience to define and prioritize product requirements for the engineering teams.
You have the ability to break down complex problems into steps that drive product development at Google. You're organized and have excellent influencing and negotiation skills. Additionally, you will have meaningful exposure and visibility to senior executives and cross-functional leaders as you promote the product roadmap, clearly articulating the impact from solutions.
