About The Job

As a Competition Economist, you will work with the company’s Legal and Policy Teams, helping them refine Google’s position in various cases, analyze its business practices, respond to government agencies’ queries and data requests, and prepare evidence for court filings. You will also liaise with outside economic advisors.

Beyond playing a role in such investigations, you will also be a thought leader, helping Google engage in debates touching on the technology sector from an economic perspective.

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.


Lead the collection and analysis of data in the context of regulatory and litigation proceedings.

  • Work cross-functionally with our Legal, Finance, and Policy teams on economic analyses to inform Google’s positions.
  • Perform testing and verification of economic assumptions.
