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.
Our current projects are focused on identifying emerging consumer trends in Search and YouTube usage relevant for marketers, and understanding diversity trends for advertising content, to help foster equitable representation of all audiences.
As a Data Scientist, you will evaluate and improve the data sets and pipelines that power our projects. You will bring scientific rigor and statistical methods to the challenges of data quality, insights and system performance to meet the users' high standards.
You will be expected to use machine learning and AI tools (e.g. TensorFlow) for projects. You will build and prototype analysis pipelines iteratively to provide insights at scale through external tools, reports as well as internal dashboards. You will develop comprehensive knowledge of Google data structures and metrics, advocating for changes where needed for product development. This includes data gathering and requirements specification, processing, analysis, ongoing deliverables, and presentations.
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.
