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 Business Affairs Manager, you will establish relationships with marketers, and finance/legal resources. You’ll work with marketers to determine and clarify business needs, ensure alignment of cross-functional partners, and guide projects to completion efficiently and collaboratively. You will help us improve and simplify the workflows and processes that enable marketers to do their best work. You’ll advise, review, and analyze a number of agreements (e.g., license, sponsorship, co-marketing, and talent). You will effectively manage high-volumes of work across a matrixed organization, and develop methods to establish, streamline, and improve internal workflows and processes.
