Process Design and Technology Project Manager
Google 1,603 reviewsMountain View, CA
Google’s known for our innovative technologies, products and services — and for the people behind them. Whether you are making our staffing systems more efficient, planning for our growth, building relationships on college campuses or cultivating the next generation of computer scientists, you have an eye on the staffing needs of Google and the broader hiring landscape. You are focused on cultivating outstanding candidates for Google’s long-term hiring needs, and you are the glue that ties together a cross-functional and international group of staffing teams. You are both scrappy and resourceful, creative and driven — and excited to share the magic of working at Google.

People are arguably Google’s most important asset, so the processes and technology we use to find, grow and keep Googlers are critical. This role sits on the team responsible for optimizing our end-to-end people processes in alignment with People Operations goals. Domains range from hiring to compensation to performance management to career development. You are an experienced operations expert who can document current processes and propose solutions that optimize efficiency, experience and quality. You can also partner and collaborate cross-functionally with business, UX and application engineering teams to develop and land technical solutions.

Great just isn’t good enough for our People Operations team (you probably know us better as “Human Resources’). Made up of equal parts HR professionals, former consultants and analysts, we’re the champions of Google’s colorful culture. In People Ops, we “find them, grow them, and keep them” – we bring the world’s most innovative people to Google and provide the programs that help them thrive. Whether recruiting the next great Googler, refining our core programs, developing talent or simply looking for ways to inject some more fun into the lives of our Googlers, we bring a data-driven approach that is reinventing the human resources field.
