About the job
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. Our team works closely with creative and prolific engineers, designers, marketers, etc. to help design and develop technologies that improve access to the world's information. We're responsible for guiding products throughout the execution cycle, focusing specifically on analyzing, positioning, packaging, promoting, and tailoring our solutions to our users.
Chrome OS is unique in that it’s the first and only operating system to have so frequent updates to users. It is built on simplicity but also provides capabilities such as running any Android app or a full Linux environment. The combination of those two with a set of a strong team of passionate people who have fun coming to work makes it a great environment to thrive. Your creativity and execution could affect every single part of the user experience on the devices and/or browser - It can impact which upcoming devices we will ship or what other product areas will build for Chrome and Chrome OS.
Google aims to build products that organize the world's information and make it universally accessible to our users. As a Product Manager at Google, you could be working on new technologies, platforms, consumer facing products, and/or enterprise systems. The end goal will be to match you with the team that best aligns with your interests, experience, and where you will have the most impact.
Work on the Chrome and Chrome OS Accessibility team, you will help us with three important goals:
Improve the web platform with tools and APIs to help developers make their web apps accessible to everyone
Work on Chrome's UI to improve the experience for users with disabilities, including those who rely on third-party assistive technology
Build and improve Chrome OS platform features for users with disabilities, including screen reading, braille support, magnification, color enhancement, and more.
Go beyond enabling people to use our products and services, we want to find new ways for technology to improve people’s lives. Your projects will have a crucial impact on users as you approach hard technical problems and coordinate with many teams at Google to find solutions that make Chrome and Chrome OS an amazing platform for everyone.
