Job Description

Posted On: August 27, 2019

As the Director of Partnerships, Content and Sports Media, you'll conceive and execute breakthrough communications and media architectures and ideas that will elevate the Google brand and individual Google products across all channels. You’ll utilize your deep sports media and marketing background as an experienced strategic leader and change agent to drive great work. You’ll drive innovation and the business into new territory with your healthy skepticism of traditional marketing and media mores to be a doer as well as a thinker; someone who works to push ideas beyond the norm. Your communications approach will raise our game for how we bring ideas to life by amplifying not just what we say, but who we say it with.

In this role, you will develop the integrated strategy for sports sponsorships globally. You’ll assume in-house leadership and expertise by identifying, cultivating and curating new sponsorship opportunities and evaluating the cost/value of both media and non-media assets. You’ll also drive innovative partnership integrations across all channels - TV integrations, experiential executions, multi-platform sponsorships. Finally, you will lead media strategy and execution across all channels for individual products, with accountability for driving business key performance indicators.

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.
