About the job

As a member of Google’s Government Affairs and Public Policy team, you’ll be part of a diverse global government affairs team, working across regions, product areas, and functions. You’ll combine creativity and intellectual rigor with the organizational skills to manage various campaigns, projects and initiatives. In this role, you’ll advocate for Google to bring external perspectives back into the company to inform our perception and direction. You’re passionate about the opportunity to shape the future of how we use and build technology for everyone.

As a Public Policy Manager, you’ll serve as a member of a team supporting Google Cloud, a global group of subject matter experts focused on the use of cloud technologies in the public sector and highly regulated markets, touching upon security, privacy, human rights, and the intersection of these issues with international public policy.

You’ll support Google Cloud’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) product initiatives, crafting public policy engagement strategies for Google Cloud AI leadership and contributing to Google-wide AI policy initiatives. You’ll collaborate with public policy makers, policy influencers, and Googlers to promote a global policy environment open to the adoption of Google Cloud and supportive of cloud-based innovation.

Google takes its responsibilities seriously, including engaging with government and other stakeholders on important public policy challenges. The Government Affairs and Public Policy (GAPP) team leads the company’s engagement with executive branch officials, legislators, regulators and third-parties in the formation of public policy. Working closely with Google leaders, GAPP seeks to identify key policy issues, listen carefully to others’ views and opinions, and distill and share the company’s perspective on those issues with external stakeholders. While we focus on challenges affecting the internet, our issue areas are increasingly broad and encompass many areas where public policy, business, and technology intersect.


  • Provide guidance to teams navigating sensitive customer AI use cases, particularly in regulated industries, and partner with internal stakeholders on communicating such business opportunities internally/externally.
  • Develop and execute a policy strategy for presenting our AI principles and responsible AI expertise as an industry differentiator.
  • Support Google Cloud’s Responsible AI initiatives, from internal AI governance to external product launches in areas including explainability and fairness.
  • Coordinate regulatory and legislative efforts pertaining to AI in partnership with cross-functional stakeholders.
  • Advise product and business leadership on AI policy matters and strategic external engagements.
