Google’s projects, like our users, span the globe and require managers to keep the big picture in focus. As a Program Manager at Google, you lead complex, multi-disciplinary projects. You plan requirements with internal customers and usher projects through the entire project lifecycle. This includes managing project schedules, identifying risks and clearly communicating goals to project stakeholders. Your projects often span offices, time zones and hemispheres, and it’s your job to keep all the players coordinated on the project’s progress and deadlines.

Google products play a pre-eminent role in Google being a leader and driving the internet revolution. Many of these products such as Trader, Maps, YouTube, Android, News, etc. are extremely popular and are defining the way internet is used in several emerging market countries in Africa, Middle-East, Asia and Latin America. The way these products are structured and managed is also distinctly different in emerging markets. 

The Emerging Market Program Management team manages projects and operations that enable Google Engineering/Product teams to customize/launch these products and manage their operations for success in the emerging markets. The function is critical in meeting Google’s content creation goals and relevance of internet access in these markets. Examples of projects that are being led by the Program Management team include: creating and monitoring as well as stimulating the creation of content for products such as Google Trader, Google Maps, YouTube, SMS extensions to Gmail, Google+, etc., localization of products (language and contextual adaption), rolling out projects such as internet education in universities, enabling city Wi-Fi projects, distributing of low cost Android phones for specific projects, etc. 

We’re looking for strong Program Managers who can take charge of high performing teams and work with capable vendors to deliver on one or more of the above illustrated projects in a region. The role requires a leader with outstanding decision-making skills, management experience and flexibility. 

Most importantly, the role requires the manager to be extremely comfortable working in amorphous situations. Besides execution skills, being entrepreneurial and enthusiastic with ability to think street-smart and innovative solutions would be highly valued traits for this position. Local knowledge of regions is very important. In this fast-growing environment, the Program Manager must also exercise extraordinary judgment as key stakeholder in our hiring process of the contractual staff. Strong candidates should be extremely proactive, motivated, organized, responsible, and should work well within a fast-paced group. He or she would also use innovative methods to share industry insight and propose product solutions while employing quantitative abilities to make effective, strategic decisions. This is a fast paced and cross functional (XFN) leadership role working with product managers, country managers, marketing teams, etc.
