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.
As a Strategy and Operations Associate, you will be a critical part of the Grow with Google team by helping to define the team’s strategy and priorities. You will identify risks and clearly communicate trade-offs, mitigation options, and develop data-driven recommendations.
You will work with teams and partner cross-functionally with key stakeholders across Marketing, Public Policy, Finance, and Communications to solve challenges, lead high-priority projects, and drive operational excellence. You will help shape yearly and quarterly strategic planning, manage budgets, internal communications, and project management across several workstreams.
In this role, you will become an invaluable source of advice and an essential partner to executives. You will navigate ambiguity, drive innovative thinking, make sound business recommendations/decisions with imperfect data, and drive effective execution.
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.
- Partner with leadership to develop yearly strategic planning and align with cross-functional teams on priorities, goals, and resource allocation.
- Manage budget and goals to meet quarterly and yearly deliverable deadlines.
- Drive executive and leadership team communications (e.g., weekly snippets, executive updates, launch trackers, presentations, and executive reviews).
- Improve overall efficiency/effectiveness, develop return on investment and cost efficiencies analysis, and provide data-driven analysis recommendations.
- Partner with the leadership team on ad hoc priority projects (e.g., growth opportunities, support business decisions, etc.).
