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 Third Data Center (3PDC) Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) team provides EH&S services that effectively scale compliance and safety excellence to the data center's growing third-party infrastructure mix.

These highly flexible technical infrastructure facilities include staffed and un-staffed locations which are deployed rapidly to meet capacity demands.

You'll play a critical part in ensuring all EH&S issues are proactively identified and addressed by working cross functionally across other departments and 3rd parties.

Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running.
