X is Alphabet’s moonshot factory where uncomfortably ambitious, world-changing new 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.
The Strategy Team at X is a team of strategists that are each dedicated to a small number of projects and investigations, and support them on questions that vary from how big is your market, all the way through to what is your business model, your 5 year plan and P&L. Our strategists view themselves as an integral part of the project team; They work shoulder to shoulder with them to better understand the business and moonshot potential of the relevant ideas and technologies, and help by quickly and collaboratively solving problems and challenges, and setting the project up for success in the real world.
This is a varied and unpredictable role, which requires being comfortable with uncertainty and being self directed, creative and a critical thinker. If you like to know exactly what you’ll be working on tomorrow/next quarter, it’s probably not the best fit for you. If you have startup experience and a varied background, if you like problem solving in markets that have yet to be invented as well as rolling up your sleeves on implementation, if you thrive on creative chaos and can gently introduce a bit of rigor but not too much to kill the spirit of innovation - then this might just be the role for you.
At X, we don't just accept difference - we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of our employees, our products and our community. We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is an affirmative action employer. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status. We also consider qualified applicants regardless of criminal histories, consistent with legal requirements.
