  • Define a strategic roadmap for the future of internal enterprise, while busting silos and imparting user-centered philosophy across the Corporate Engineering leadership team.
  • Empower the organization to deliver work - designs, content, research insights, prototypes - that has direct product impact, delivers equitable and inclusive outcomes for all Googlers, and raises the bar on the quality of enterprise user experiences.
  • Attract, grow, and retain an exceptional, multi-disciplinary team of diverse user experience talent, while investing into culture and health; build a UX organization that is inclusive, balanced, opinionated, and creative.
