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.
As the Head of Music Programming for EMEA you will help build and maintain YouTube's Music program on handsets, web and tablets. Based on your digital content experience, you will co-ordinate and launch effective features and promotions. You bring to the table strong content instincts, sharp analytical abilities, and impeccable verbal and written communication skills.
You are comfortable working cross-functionally with product, design, marketing, engineering, and other teams to develop an innovative user experience. You'll be able to work both independently and collaboratively to develop new content features and scalable programming processes. You’ll also have a track record for successful prioritization, meeting critical deadlines, and enthusiastically taking on new challenges.

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.
