Real Estate & Workplace Services
Mountain View, CA (HQ)
X is Alphabet’s moonshot factory where uncomfortably ambitious, world-changing ideas are developed and taken out into the world. X projects have the potential to transform the lives of billions of people and make the world a radically better place. For X to be successful, we have to repeatedly turn breakthrough technology ideas into products that solve large problems in the world, and create meaningful businesses for Alphabet.
As X Head of Real Estate and Workplace Services (REWS), you will provide great customer service to the business. You will manage a team responsible for diverse set of occupancy and user services in both a lab and office environment, including Space Planning, Construction, Facilities Management, Office Management, Security and EH&S, Transportation, Food Programs, and Employee Perks. These services will be delivered through a combination of direct procurement and partnership with X leadership and Google’s Real Estate & Workplace Services organization.
The position requires exceptional communication and strategic thinking skills in addition to financial acumen and expertise in project management, construction management, service contract management, physical security, people management, organizational development, and space planning experience. You must build trust in difficult situations, provide insight for making decisions where trade-offs are required, and proactively work to keep information circulating so that REWS can intelligently support X’s evolving business needs. Your critical thinking skills allow you to extract actionable insights from your interactions with leadership and Xers and implement solutions that support day-to-day operational excellence in flexible facilities services. Your comprehensive communication strategy will ensure collaboration across the organization and achieve outcomes that exceed our clients expectations. You are motivated by autonomy and ownership, but you can easily work as a part of a high functioning leadership team. You share best practices, find efficiencies and support the implementation of innovative programs. You will have the opportunity to build and maintain world-changing space for the teams who are building world-changing products!
