Google Consumer Marketing Manager, Brand - Berlin

This position is based in Berlin, Germany.

The area: Marketing

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--breaking the rules, redefining the medium, making the user the hero, and ultimately, letting the technology speak for itself.

The role: Consumer Marketing Manager, Brand

As a Marketing manager, you are a fully dedicated business leader, shaping the future of one of our many Google products. 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. The role enables you to shape the product development process, organize product launches from beginning to end and form future marketing strategy.
Part of the consumer marketing team, this is a global role that focuses on cross-product brand initiative, e.g. around privacy, security and culture. You will be responsible for the marketing strategy, planning and execution of German wide campaigns that support the Google brand. This is a cross-functional, cross-country role: you will be working closely with the Product Marketing in London, PR and Policy in Germany and Product Management/Engineering teams in EMEA.
