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.

YouTube has become the expressive platform for culture and society today. Together we are building a global destination for creativity, learning, and free expression. We have made investments in building our Artist Marketing team to prove our value to artists and better serve the music industry in breaking new music and acts.

You will lead strategy and business operations for our Artist Marketing team across global campaigns and strategic projects. This requires a creative, organized, and motivated professional to guide strategy development, manage our artist pipeline, and help build the tool and processes to launch global artist marketing campaigns. You will oversee the strategic development of our approach with our partners and the broader industry, working with our product, artist relations, programming, brand and creative, press, media teams, and more to build full-scale promotions that serve our business and our artist partners.

Know the user. Know the magic. Connect the two. At its core, marketing at Google starts with technology and ends with the user, bringing both together in unconventional ways. 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.
