The Global Sustainability Team enables Google to build a more sustainable future for everyone by driving strategy and catalyzing solutions at scale.

As a Circular Economy program manager, you will partner with internal teams to expand our leadership in the circular economy through operational waste reduction, reuse, and recycling efforts and clarifying the opportunity to achieve the company’s 2030 net-zero carbon emissions goal using circular economy levers.

The name Google came from “googol,” a mathematical term for the number 1 followed by 100 zeros. And nobody at Google loves big numbers like the Finance team when providing in depth analysis on all manner of strategic decisions across Google products. From developing forward-thinking analysis to generating management reports to scaling our automated financial processes, the Finance organization is an important partner and advisor to the business.

  • Participate in industry-wide working groups creating circular economy methodologies and standards.
  • Support the creation and publication of thought leadership content.
