At Google, we put our users first. The world is always changing so we need Product Managers who are continuously adapting and excited to work on products that affect millions of people every day.

In this role, you will work cross-functionally to guide products from conception to launch by connecting the technical and business worlds. You can break down complex problems into steps that drive product development at Google speed.

One of the many reasons Google consistently brings innovative, world-changing products to market is because of the collaborative work we do in Product Management.

We're responsible for guiding products throughout the execution cycle, focusing specifically on analyzing, positioning, packaging, promoting, and tailoring our solutions to our users.

Google's Quantum team achieved an incredible milestone last year: Quantum Supremacy. As the leading quantum computing effort in the world, our team was the first to achieve the goal of demonstrating that a quantum computer can compute a problem beyond the ability of current supercomputers. The team is now focused on the road ahead: scaling up our proof of concept into a fault tolerant quantum computer over the next ten years. To achieve the dream of a practical quantum computer, the Quantum product team needs to engage with the academic and user community. Our Quantum product team develops products that allow the community to utilize our hardware and experiment with algorithm and application ideas.

At Google, our users come first, and the Systems Infrastructure team is at the heart of that promise. We build the technologies that transform the way we think about doing business. Whether working on our cloud systems, researching the latest in computer technology or keeping Google's internal systems humming, Googlers and users alike rely on us to keep things running. We're back-end experts: protecting your privacy and ensuring your security.
