About the job
Strategy & Operations (S&O) professionals in Google’s Marketing organization provide business critical insights and analytics, ensure cross-functional alignment of goals and execution, and help teams drive strategic partnerships and new initiatives forward. Whether you are embedded within a specific marketing team to use insights to enable better marketing decisions or the global S&O function to equip the organization to succeed at scale, you will engage with Google leadership in order to establish Marketing’s strategic direction. You will manage planning and operational processes and work cross-functionally with key partners across Marketing, Product, Finance and Engineering to solve our toughest challenges, advocate for high-priority projects, and drive greater operational rigor within Marketing. To be successful in this role, you have a hypothesis-driven approach to problem solving, effective quantitative and communication skills, and the ability to take on broad-reaching and ambiguous questions while working collaboratively and cross-functionally with Googlers of all levels.
In this role you, you'll work in the UK Marketing’s Strategy and Operations team, across all product areas, supporting and collaborating with multiple country, regional and global teams. You will be responsible for continually proposing adjustments to the UK’s marketing strategy focus areas and for enabling its implementation through aligning incentives, identifying capabilities and resources needs, managing strategic activities and providing outstanding problem solving to the toughest challenges across teams. In particular, under the User Centricity focus area, you will be responsible for managing the cross-functional and cross-product project, ensuring the timely delivery of milestones, their adequate review and approval, measurement and learnings.
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.
  • Analyze structured or unstructured internal and external data about Googlers, users, customers or the market in general, in order to find data based responses.
  • Drive forward the delivery of the multi-annual UK Marketing strategy, its quarterly cross-product objectives and key results, by rigorously tracking its execution, flagging issues to decision makers and proposing solutions to overcome any bottlenecks.
  • Manage the global User Centricity marketing annual program, by continuously tracking execution against a cross-functional plan of record, articulating multiple and diverse stakeholders with connected work streams.
  • Uncover and propose user journeys across products that may translate into marketing campaign pilots that can promote the delivery of products and strategies.
