About the job

The Google Nest team is building products, services, and a smart home partner ecosystem that allow our consumers to know what’s happening in their home, easily engage Nest and third-party products to help around the house and make sure everyone’s safe and sound. We do this by surfacing the best of Google’s products, technologies and services into beautiful consumer experiences that are simple, fast, smart, and personal – making them indispensable in solving meaningful consumer problems.

As a Product Marketing Manager, you'll work closely with cross-functional leadership across the hardware organization, ecosystem product management, business development, public relations, consumer marketing, as well as the Google Assistant teams. Together with these teams, you will research, plan, and execute ambitious ecosystem activations, initiatives, and campaigns including the new smart home partner catalog and discovery site. You will provide marketing launch support for Made for Google partners, and will work closely with business development and our partners to successfully launch their products within our ecosystem. Lastly, you’ll be responsible for messaging and naming our developer toolkits and technologies, and launch them to the developer community through marketing events such as Google I/O, to drive awareness and partner engagement.

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.

  • Become the expert on Google Nest 1P/3P products and services. Drive the overall product marketing vision for the smart home ecosystem and identify opportunities to engage product adoption.
  • Research, plan, and execute ambitious new smart home partner catalog and discovery site, by working closely with Web Development, Product, Sales, gStore, Support, Marketing and Creative teams etc.
  • Work closely with Product Managers and Brand Strategists in Marketing to develop positioning, messaging, competitive analysis, and translate these into strategies for developer and customer-facing materials and campaigns.
  • Distill key functionality and benefits into compelling value propositions and messages for consumers and developers. Create core content assets to tell our story, including videos, web and blog copy etc.
  • Manage the developer toolkit work streams for new features, APIs and products, including messaging, naming, core assets, and cross-team coordination.
