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 Google Logistics team relies on sound process design, system-driven workflows, continuous improvement, and performance management for all aspects of its operations.

You will coordinate the application development of WMS and associated working methods in order to fulfill business needs and user satisfaction. You will ensure WMS and associated IT equipment is available, well-configured, and maintained. You will also implement system enhancements to increase efficiency, decrease operational costs, increase quality, and smooth out operational processes.
Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running.
