About the job

Financial Analysts ensure that Google makes sound financial decisions. As a Financial Analyst, your work, whether it's modeling business scenarios or tracking performance metrics, is used by our leaders to make strategic company decisions. Working on multiple projects at a time, you are focused on the details while finding creative ways to take on big picture challenges.

As someone who knows the workings of the core Finance team inside and out, you'll lead individual projects to transform planning, tracking and control processes. You'll provide senior level management with insightful recommendations, planning and reporting support.

In this role, you will have the opportunity to work on one of Google's most exciting product areas -- Devices and Services!

Your responsibilities will include optimizing our device cost structure, designing and implementing critical financial processes, and driving improved investment ROI across the business. The role will focus on device costs and capital investment.

The mission for the team is designing/building critical financial infrastructure to support the business and working closely with the Supply Chain team to track performance and ensure optimal cost structures as well as overall sound decision making. You will partner with the functional teams to understand industry, product, and business related trends that could result in additional financial risk to Google.

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.
