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 Technical Program Manager at Google, you’ll use your technical expertise to lead complex, multi-disciplinary projects from start to finish. You’ll work with stakeholders to plan requirements, identify risks, manage project schedules, and communicate clearly with cross-functional partners across the company. You're equally comfortable explaining your team's analyses and recommendations to executives as you are discussing the technical tradeoffs in product development with engineers.

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.

As a Technical Program Manager focused on audio algorithms, you’ll keep an innovative engineering team firing on all cylinders. You will work closely with engineers, product managers, and CMs/ODMs/OEMs to get high-quality products built, tested and released on time. You will bridge the gap between critical technologies and the top-level system, coordinating many fast-changing, moving parts that come together as a product. You possess excellent communication skills and can answer all questions about schedules, quality and progress updates. You are responsible for identifying and managing risks, making sound judgments about quality, and stopping (or speeding up) production at the right time.

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. Our Devices & Services team combines the best of Google AI, Software, and Hardware to create radically helpful experiences for users. We research, design, and develop new technologies and hardware to make our user's interaction with computing faster, seamless, and more powerful. Whether finding new ways to capture and sense the world around us, advancing form factors, or improving interaction methods, the Devices & Services team is making people's lives better through technology.

The US base salary range for this full-time position is $142,000-$211,000 + bonus + equity + benefits. Our salary ranges are determined by role, level, and location. The range displayed on each job posting reflects the minimum and maximum target salaries for the position across all US locations. Within the range, individual pay is determined by work location and additional factors, including job-related skills, experience, and relevant education or training. Your recruiter can share more about the specific salary range for your preferred location during the hiring process. Please note that the compensation details listed in US role postings reflect the base salary only, and do not include bonus, equity, or benefits. Learn more about benefits at Google.

Responsibilities
  • Partner closely with Audio engineers, UX researchers, product managers and a broad cross-functional team to manage the development and validation of Audio algorithms used on Pixel products.
  • Interface with engineers across both HW & SW, estimate work efforts, define milestones and manage resources. Track progress, resolve dependencies, evaluate risks and communicate status to senior management and project stakeholders.
  • Proactively remove obstacles to drive momentum and progress. Identify communication gaps, manage issue escalations and provide support to teams balancing competing priorities.
  • Understand technical implementation at the architecture level and propose technical alternatives when necessary. Ask questions that clarify priorities and push the team to be highly effective. Develop broad domain and technical knowledge.
  • Establish clear processes to help scale execution; identify systemic problems, recommend solutions; clarify roles and responsibilities for core teams involved in algorithm development.
