About the job

A problem isn’t truly solved until it’s solved for all. That’s why Googlers build products that help create opportunities for everyone, whether down the street or across the globe. As a Program Manager at Google, you’ll lead complex, multi-disciplinary projects from start to finish — working with stakeholders to plan requirements, manage project schedules, identify risks, and communicate clearly with cross-functional partners across the company. Your projects will often span offices, time zones, and hemispheres. It’s your job to coordinate the players and keep them up to date on progress and deadlines.

Our goal is to build a Google that looks like the world around us — and we want Googlers to stay and grow when they join us. As part of our efforts to build a Google for everyone, we build diversity, equity, and inclusion into our work and we aim to cultivate a sense of belonging throughout the company.

The Standards Development organization is a cross-functional initiative to coordinate and collaborate standards development work across Alphabet to minimize business risk, increase positive impact on our community and meet customer, regulatory and compliance obligations.

Our key goals are to identify key areas where there is a potential business or regulatory risk inherent in external standards work and define specific engagement activities to mitigate that risk. We deliver on standards engagement via strategically prioritized, peer reviewed input to key Standard & Regulatory bodies to support Alphabet’s products and business interests. Our primary technology focus areas are Security, Privacy, AI/ML, Cloud, Blockchain, IoT and Health.
