Google Global Brand Lead, Next Billion Users in Mountain View, California

Whether you're on a consumer product (like Gmail, Search, Maps, Chrome, Android) or a business product (AdWords, AdSense, DoubleClick, 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.

Next Billion Users is looking for an experienced and dynamic marketer, with outstanding strategic skills, and strong creative sensibility to help lead our brand efforts at a global and cross-functional level.

In this role, you'll conceive and execute breakthrough ideas that will have as much impact in the development of brand strategy as Google's products have in technology. You are a strategic thinker and change agent who thrives jumping in feet first to solve challenging problems by always focusing on the user. You are a collaborative brand planner with a great portfolio of previous clients and also a healthy skepticism of traditional marketing mores. Someone who's looking to the future, who can help build and communicate technology in a way everyone can understand. In addition, you will be expected to be a doer as well as a thinker, who does not settle for the expected and conventional, but works to push ideas beyond the norm.

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.
