About the job

Google is an ambitious company. To push the limits of technology we have to take some bold steps. It’s the job of our Ethics & Compliance team to help us manage daring moves successfully. As a part of this group, you strive to identify risk in a non-traditional and ever-changing business. Your work allows us to navigate the uncertain aspects of our business future in creative ways that stay true to Google’s high ethical standards. As part of a team of whip-smart lawyers, you are a self-driven team player who is able to collaborate with colleagues in person or remotely. In this role, you’ll also work alongside local partners to better understand–and address–their business needs while staying true to your mission. This is a fantastic opportunity for any lawyer who enjoys a challenge, who has strong interpersonal skills, and a thirst for learning as much as they can about the business they support.

In this role, you will oversee and implement Google’s Third-Party Data Protection and Compliance program, responsible for the company’s due diligence operations of the program; monitoring and reporting on program compliance; development, implementation, and maintenance of policies and procedures; investigation and tracking non-compliance; and leading projects across stakeholders. We work closely with Legal, Information Security, Product teams, Internal Audit, Finance, and Privacy Governance (PDPO). Our team work at the crossroads of new technologies and existing laws to provide answers and help Google build innovative and important products for our users around the world.

Whether you’re a patent attorney, an intellectual property expert or an engineer headed to law school, Google Legal lets you take on unanswered legal quandaries and create new precedents. Our innovative services raise challenging questions that demand creative and practical answers. We provide those answers by working at the crossroads of the law and new technology, helping Google build innovative and important products for users around the world.
