The role: Product Manager

We are looking for great product managers to help build YouTube!

YouTube’s accomplishments to date are already extremely impressive. Over 800M monthly visitors, 3B video views per day, over 48 hours of content uploaded every minute, the second largest search engine on the web, and one of the fastest growing revenue businesses in Google’s history.

Yet we have a long way to go. We are looking for rock star PMs to help in all areas of the product – the consumer experience, search discovery, creator and partner tools, video delivery platforms, device experiences, monetization, etc. The Product Management team works closely with our engineers to guide products from conception to launch, and with our business partners to generate profitable revenue streams. As part of the Product Management team, you bridge technical and business worlds as you design technologies with creative and prolific engineers and then zoom out to lead matrix teams such as Sales, Marketing and Finance, to name a few. You have a bias for action and can break down complex problems into steps that drive product development at Google speed. As a Product Manager, you can be part of shaping Google’s next game-changer.
