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 excellence 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 member of the Strategic Outreach and Visits team, you will help drive engagement between government stakeholders and Google executives on a wide range of public policy issues and topics. You will work across regions, product areas, and functions to ensure succinct and relevant messaging, as well as prepare and brief executives ahead of engagements.

You will be the point of contact at Google to policymakers and influential thought leaders that visit our campuses, and help manage executive visits globally.

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.

  • Lead on the composition, consolidation, editing of complex written materials (e.g., briefing docs, letters, talking points, etc.).
  • Develop cross-functional partnerships and relationships with executives’ teams to create meaningful agendas for engagements and ensure the appropriate internal participants are included.
