About the job

Google's known for our innovative technologies, products and services -- and for the people behind them. As part of our recruiting team, you're charged with finding the most interesting candidates who bring an entrepreneurial spirit and a diversity of thought to all they do. You're responsible for guiding candidates through our hiring process and connecting them to the magic of working at Google. You are creative and driven, which allows you to develop lasting relationships with both candidates and hiring managers. You're also comfortable with numbers and drawing insights from analytics to make our hiring process smarter and more efficient.

Our mission is to find, engage, and hire executive leaders, focusing on under represented groups and historically marginalized communities. We are a focused team designed to advocate and supplement the delivery of historically excluded talent for executive positions across the organization.

Executive Recruiters are trusted talent advisors to leadership. In this role, you will develop search strategies and lead engagements to position Google for success. You'll generate pipelines to maintain successful offer acceptance rates, and manage the entire candidate experience and executive search process.

Great just isn't good enough for our People Operations team (known elsewhere as "Human Resources"). We bring the world's most innovative people to Google and provide the programs that help them thrive. Whether recruiting the next Googler, refining our core programs, developing talent, or simply looking for ways to inject some more fun into the lives of our Googlers, we bring a data-driven approach that is reinventing the human resources field. You’ll play an essential role advancing a more diverse, accessible, equitable, and inclusive Google through our hiring, promotion, retention, and inclusion practices.
