Google's line of products and services to clients never stops growing. Strategic Partner Managers have the rare opportunity to build a long-lasting relationship with our top partners. You cultivate these existing partnerships to make sure they can take full advantage of Google's ever-growing suite of offerings. You possess strong relationship-building skills and are apt to see mutually beneficial opportunities with partners in order to best represent our users, products and programs.
You will engage with prospective partners in the EMEA advertising industry. Such partners might include for example advertising measurement companies, industry bodies managing advertising standards and advertising platforms. You'll manage the new business agreement process end-to-end by understanding market dynamics, evaluating new partnership opportunities, conducting partner outreach, and structuring term sheets and agreements leading up to agreement execution.
Additionally, you thrive in a collaborative and team-based environment, working closely with the internal industry thought-leaders to provide the most value to our strategic partners. You will also have strong attention to detail, outstanding project management skills, and an ability to manage C-suite relationships.
