Google Russia Advertises a Vacancy of Public Policy and Government Relations Manager
Due to the passed law that creates a blacklist for websites in Russia, representatives of Russian IT-companies have to cooperate with negotiators of government agencies.
According to the described responsibilities, a new employee has to help manage Google's local public policy strategy and campaigns as well as work with government, politics or a regulatory agency and grasp complex technical and policy issues.
A new manager will have to help advise Google product and engineering teams on the public policy implications of products as well as work with a closely coordinated and cross-functional global team. In addition, he will work with various product agendas with power circles inside and outside government.
“Technology moves quickly, so it's important that we work closely with politicians, regulators, academics and third parties to help them understand the issues that affect the Internet and our users. Google and the web touch a lot of public policy debates, so we're looking for quick-witted, entrepreneurial and intellectually curious people to join our team.”
As Google Russia representatives say, this new Public Policy and Government Relations manager won't replace another manager but will be an advanced part of Russian office.
In respect that the new law forces the IT-companies work together, the enlargement of Google establishment for GR cooperation, such a move is quite rational.
