Mountain View, CA
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 new businesses for Alphabet.
About the Team:
This is a varied and unpredictable role, which requires being comfortable with uncertainty and constantly re-assessing how to support the needs of our diverse projects. If you like to know exactly what you’ll be working on tomorrow or next quarter, it’s probably not for you. But if you enjoy entrepreneurial problem-solving, if you like working 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.
About the Role:
In this role, you will lead strategic finance for a number of X projects, requiring you to partner with product, engineering, business development, and other cross-functional staff to help your teams make critical business decisions. The project will depend on you for business models, capital allocation and P&L statements. You will also partner with senior X executives to decide where and how X should place its bets. This includes participating in the company-wide capital allocation process. To succeed in this role, you should be an enthusiastic self-starter with a passion for innovation and a desire to scope, design, and implement improved processes to support growth.
