In this role, you will have an understanding of employee engagement efforts. You’ll work closely with cross-functional partners such as real estate workplace services, human resources, employment legal, employee resources groups, site leadership, and more.

You are quick-witted, entrepreneurial and intellectually curious. To succeed in this role, you are willing to try new things and can manage numerous projects with tight deadlines. Things happen quickly at Google, and to do great work, you need to be an enthusiastic team player who can work cross-functionally with partners across PR, comms, marketing, product and beyond.
