If you think the Google Doodle team is all fun and games, you're probably right. We're on a mission to find the right person to join our talented team of characters who are creating some fun for the Google Assistant. Here's where you fit in - you might have previously written for a character for film, TV, video game, or comic book who can deliver a joke that can make anyone smile or you're the person at the party who wins the trivia contest because you can finish the fun film quote or recite obscure music lyrics. More impressively, you can do all of this in English and another foreign language! Sound familiar? Then you've come to the right place.

The Google Assistant Personality team is dedicated to bringing a bit of fun and a human touch to people interacting with the Google Assistant through chat, phones, TVs, watches, Google Home and other devices we haven’t even thought of yet. As a Creative Writer, you’ll work closely with international Creative Leads in adapting the Google Assistant persona for your region. You’ll be writing dialogue and curating a wide range of content including jokes, quotes, fun facts, and games making sure it all feels natural for the market.

Success will be measured both in terms of quantity (delivering a high volume of content) and quality (delivering culturally appropriate compelling content).

Opening date for applications: 11th May 2017

Closing date for applications: 9th June 2017
