  • Lead as people manager of all program participants.

  • Manage engagement and collaboration between members of the Office of the CTO and existing delivery teams

  • Cross-train engineers on Google Cloud technology skills across infrastructure, application, and data tools; Search, Gsuite, Maps, Chrome; the software development lifecycle, as well as project, client and, change management
