About the job
Google accountants are a savvy bunch who handle the core accounting responsibilities at Google. As a member of this team, you know your accounting principles and the full accounting process end to end. You'll advise on financial reports required by governmental regulations, and you'll review, analyze, and interpret financial and budgetary reports -- and all this sounds like fun to you. Every day is a new challenge, and you're continually looking for ways to help our team get better at what we do, in the most efficient way possible. A team player at heart, you collaborate with our global team, advocate best practices and roll up your sleeves to pitch in when it's all hands on deck. You move fast while keeping your attention to detail, and you tap into your problem-solving skills to support Google's business objectives.
As a Finance Program Manager at Google, you'll lead complex, multidisciplinary systems design, implementation, and integration projects using your technical expertise. You'll plan requirements with internal customers and usher projects through the entire project lifecycle. This includes coordinating cross-functional teams across Finance, Operations and IT/Engineering, managing project schedules, identifying financial, systems and project risks and clearly communicating them to project stakeholders. You're equally at home explaining the team's analyses and recommendations to finance executives as you are discussing the technical trade-offs in systems development with engineers.
In this role, you'll work with collaborative global teams while performing a broad array of financial risk management activities. Process transformation enables the business for success while maintaining an effective control environment and optimized resource allocation.
