Regional Data Center Training 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.

You will drive the implementation of a global training program at the assigned region for a diverse team of data center operators and support staff. Our team is looking for a leader with a proven track record of developing and delivering training content and certification programs for technical organizations. This includes delivering instructor-led training in both traditional classroom and virtual (web-based) classroom settings, as well as leading all aspects of a technical certification program.

You will be able to excel in a fast-paced environment, manage multiple projects simultaneously, provide quick responses and meet aggressive deadlines. You are an extremely self-motivated, autonomous individual who will lead regional efforts for training program development and delivery.

Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running. From developing and maintaining our data centers to building the next generation of Google platforms, we make Google's product portfolio possible. We're proud to be our engineers' engineers and love voiding warranties by taking things apart so we can rebuild them. We're always on call to keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.
