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

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.

opportunities, improving processes and driving the technical
directions of your programs.
As a Technical Program Manager, you will be involved in every

managers and plant engineers, as well as our design and
construction teams, to develop creative and scalable solutions for
smaller scale data center deployments as well as hyper-scale data
centers. You will provide leadership and management for the team

miniclusters, networking, AC power distribution/conversion, and
cooling methods at multiple scales.
In this role, you will work cross-functionally to manage base
building construction and fit out projects. You will also manage
multiple projects in various states of evaluation, design,
construction, and handover to operations and across greenfield
sites or within live facilities.
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
