The role: Outreach Program Manager
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.
The Outreach Program Manager helps to bring awareness to Google’s mission, open web technologies and our products within the business and technical community in your region. As an Outreach Program Manager, you will be responsible for growing the Internet eco-system in your region, by helping developers, start-ups, businesses and IT professionals to successfully build applications and grow their businesses using Google’s products, developer tools and APIs. To achieve your goals, you will work with cross-functional Google teams. Additionally, you will manage relationships with, and foster creation of, local developer, start-up, and business communities.
