Google Strategic Sourcing Manager (English, Spanish) in Santiago, Chile

At Google, we take a different approach to Procurement or Strategic Sourcing than most other organizations. We're a fast moving, innovative company and our Engineers are always looking for ways to change the world -- the Supplier Sourcing team helps make those changes happen.

We're looking for people who can easily navigate ambiguity, collaborate well across multiple teams and build strong relationships with stakeholders to get things done for Google. Since we believe competition is the best way to negotiate great deals with suppliers, you should also be comfortable using data to ensure robust decision making.

The name Google came from "googol," a mathematical term for the number 1 followed by 100 zeros.
