Product Marketing Manager at Google in California, US

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 loyal 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.

Google’s Mobile Device marketing team oversees everything from mature industry products (e.g. smartphones) to new and emerging categories. Within this team is the Integrated Marketing team whose mission it is to create incredibly creative and engaging content that earns consumers’ attention and then converts them to happy users.

As a Product Marketing Manager, you will be part of a small and nimble team responsible for driving large-scale, multi-channel, US campaigns that include ATL and digital, events, influencers, partners and more. Our day-to-day is spent collaborating with cross functional team members along with internal and external agency partners and regional teams, all to ensure consumer touch points are integrating and delivering impact.

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.
