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.

As a Program Manager, you will have a key role in helping to drive location strategy, site selection, and portfolio management for new and existing data centers sites and related infrastructure. You will primarily support the development of the company's global economic development program for data centers. This is a dynamic role, working closely with a worldwide network of internal stakeholders as well as strategic vendors to support the growth of Google's products and services, and to provide the infrastructure that will help expand the company's global reach. You will work closely with the Economic Development team to support business discussions with key stakeholders.


  • Develop long-term global strategies for data center economic development that take into account multiple internal and external variables.
  • Identify and assess economic development trends, risks, and opportunities; develop recommendations, and drive product, geography, industry, and strategy evolution. Work closely with globally distributed teams to communicate long-term strategy frameworks, collect requirements and emerging issues, and support bespoke analytical projects.
  • Work closely with the broader Economic and Community Development organization to build foundational standards, guidelines, protocols, and help structure best practices for global economic development programs and projects.
  • Develop best practices for standard risk analyses impacting long-term data center development; working with cross-functional teams beyond primary organization. Support development, aggregation, tracking, and reporting of portfolio related metrics, OKRs, KPIs, and goals.
  • Partner with internal development teams to design and implement improvements to proprietary project management systems.
