Job Title
Quantitative Analyst, Operations Decision Support


Job Description
Quantitative Analyst, Operations Decision Support
Mountain View
At Google, data drives all of our decision-making. Quantitative Analysts work all across the organization to help shape Google's business and technical strategies by processing, analyzing and interpreting huge data sets. Using analytical rigor and statistical methods, you mine through data to identify opportunities for Google and our clients to operate more efficiently, from enhancing advertising efficacy to network infrastructure optimization to studying user behavior. As an analyst, you do more than just crunch the numbers. You work with Engineers, Product Managers, Sales Associates and Marketing teams to adjust Google's practices according to your findings. Identifying the problem is only half the job; you also figure out the solution.
As a member of the Operations Decision Support team, you will apply operations research and statistical methods to solve problems that have never been solved at Google’s scale and complexity in the planning of compute, storage, network and datacenter capacity for both Google’s internal services and Google Cloud Platform. You will work broadly across Google’s platforms engineering, systems infrastructure, and site reliability engineering teams to optimize our deployment and pricing of resources and drive innovation in our software stack for efficiently utilizing those resources. You will be expected to think critically and strategically about Google’s cloud as a technology, a business, and an operation; you will be expected to be equally comfortable discussing total cost of ownership with hardware engineers, resource optimization with software engineers, or reviewing fleet plans and deployment policies with operations executives -- all based upon the analytical models that you will be developing.
Behind everything our users see online is the architecture built by the Technical Infrastructure team to keep it running. From developing and maintaining our data centers to building the next generation of Google platforms, we make Google's product portfolio possible. We're proud to be our engineers' engineers and love voiding warranties by taking things apart so we can rebuild them. We're always on call to keep our networks up and running, ensuring our users have the best and fastest experience possible.
Lead projects with hands-on analysis and modeling, drawing from a breadth of analytical methods to choose the right tool and right level of complexity appropriate to solving the business problem.
Engage broadly with the organization to identify, prioritize, frame, and structure complex, ambiguous problems where advanced analytics projects or tools can have the biggest impact.
Identify and communicate the challenges and opportunities that the group should be working on.
Help define not just the analytical direction, but influence the direction of the associated engineering and infrastructure work and affect change.
Minimum qualifications:
MS degree in Operations Research, Industrial Engineering, Statistics, related field or equivalent practical experience.
2 years of relevant work experience including statistical software (R, S-Plus, SAS, or similar), databases (SQL) and scripting languages (such as Python).
Preferred qualifications:
PhD in Operations Research, Industrial Engineering, Statistics or related field.
2 years of relevant industry experience applying advanced analytics models to large-scale planning and infrastructure problems.
Experience with machine learning on large datasets.
Excellent customer service and team collaboration skills.
Excellent problem-framing, problem-solving and project management skills.
At Google, 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. Google is 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.
