You have the deep digital experience to push the boundaries in storytelling and improving consumer's lives through creative uses of technology, while you help steward and extend the Google brand in this frontier.

We're looking for a seasoned creative leader who's not interested in managing a big group of people but who's driven to make great work, and lots of it. A creative with a killer reel, but also a healthy skepticism for traditional advertising cliches and constructs. Someone who's looking to the future, and can communicate technology in a way everyone can understand, in a voice that's genuine, humble and charming. Master storyteller and whimsy maker.
