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.

Using your Audio Visual and Project Managementexperience, you will manage and lead technically complex and custom AV project installation and integration involving the installation of broadcast quality AV systems in a corporate theatrical environment.

You will be integrating complex sound systems, video production packages, theatrical lighting packages and state of the art display technologies supporting Googlers’ AV and VC (Audio Visual and Video Conferencing) and web streaming experience.

You must demonstrate the ability to provide matrixed leadership across functional teams, lead complex projects to successful completion, and understand complex, technical topics. You have strong Audio Visual technical competency and the ability to lead and influence across functional groups.
