About the job:

Whether you're on a consumer product (like Gmail, Search, Maps, Chrome, Android) or a business product (Google Ads, AdSense, Google Marketing Platform, Analytics), you take part in a complete marketing experience as you lead every facet of the product's journey. From determining positioning, naming, competitive analysis, feature prioritization and external communications, you help shape the voice of the product and help it grow a consumer base. This means you work with a cross-functional team across Sales, corporate communications, legal, webmasters, product development, engineering and more. In this role, you'll be involved with product marketing strategy from beginning to end.

In this role, you’ll live and breathe YouTube, crafting and managing the social voice. You are great copywriter, working closely with a designer and an analyst to develop content which is insightfully conceived, nimbly developed and beautifully crafted. This will span everything from a day-to-day drumbeat of content which represents the best of our brand and celebrates the things that matter most to our audience, through to crisis response, product launches and content promotion.

Our job is to demonstrate how Google's products solve the world's problems--from the everyday to the epic, from the mundane to the monumental. And we approach marketing in a way that only Google can--changing the game, redefining the medium, making the user the priority, and ultimately, letting the technology speak for itself.
