About the job
The Artist Development team works with emerging and established artists to help them grow their audience, leverage new tools and features, and build their presence on the platform by delivering innovative and targeted best practices and strategic guidance.
As an Artist Strategic Partner Manager, you'll be responsible for initiating and managing YouTube’s relationship with a portfolio of emerging and established artists from the UK. Your role will be both externally (partner-facing) and internally focused, and you'll be working on many cross-functional initiatives where you will balance business development and operations at scale.
In this role, you will work to identify and engage with a dynamic set of artists, promoting strategic initiatives to drive partner satisfaction and results, and optimizing partner performance on the platform. You possess a keen ability and demonstrated history of cultivating relationships in the music industry, in tandem with a deep understanding of trends in the market and the ability to drive results on digital platforms. You're adept at resolving contractual, technical and other issues with partners, and you will oversee these tasks with the aim of best representing our users, products and programs.
At YouTube, we believe that everyone deserves to have a voice, and that the world is a better place when we listen, share, and build community through our stories. We work together to give everyone the power to share their story, explore what they love, and connect with one another in the process. Working at the intersection of cutting-edge technology and boundless creativity, we move at the speed of culture with a shared goal to show people the world. We explore new ideas, solve real problems, and have fun — and we do it all together.
