Job Description

Financial Analysts ensure that Google makes sound financial decisions. As a Financial Analyst, your work, whether it's modeling business scenarios or tracking performance metrics, is used by our leaders to make strategic company decisions. Working on multiple projects at a time, you are focused on the details while finding creative ways to take on big picture challenges.

As someone who knows the workings of the core Finance team inside and out, you'll lead individual projects to transform planning, tracking and control processes. You'll provide senior level management with insightful recommendations, planning and reporting support.

The YouTube Finance team is responsible for business growth, forecasting, cost management and analytics for YouTube's products and services. As part of this team, you will have a unique perspective across YouTube's multiple business verticals and the ecosystems that they operate within.

In this role, you'll be at the center of YouTube's financial management. You will work cross-functionally with key stakeholders across the organization, from Sales to Engineering to Partnerships, who are building the YouTube products experienced by users globally. You will drive transparency into the financial impacts of business initiatives by developing an in-depth understanding of YouTube's underlying economic fundamentals and competitive market dynamics, which will inform YouTube's short and long-term business trajectory.

You will build analyses, highlight areas of financial risk and opportunities, and uncover elements that need further attention. You will also partner with key central functions at Google to deep dive into strategic areas and ensure accurate reporting and insightful data collection. You'll work with senior management across YouTube to drive key financial metrics and improve financial practices.

The name Google came from ''googol,'' a mathematical term for the number 1 followed by 100 zeros. And nobody at Google loves big numbers like the Finance team when providing in depth analysis on all manner of strategic decisions across Google products. From developing forward-thinking analysis to generating management reports to scaling our automated financial processes, the Finance organization is an important partner and advisor to the business.
