You are an innovative, expansive thinker, who can provide both inspiration and organizational leadership and lead our design vision, strategy, and implementation of an array of experiences across the Google Assistant portfolio of products. A key area of responsibility is developing our team’s collective talent for delivering high-fidelity, increasingly expressive designs across a growing ecosystem of surfaces and modalities. In this role you will report to the VP of User Experience and partner closely with the heads of Product Management and Engineering for the Assistant. In this role, you are responsible for driving a healthy, inclusive culture, and orchestrating across a broad range of functions and features to produce nonpareil designs, and ensure collaboration, transparency, and clarity between multiple offices, teams, and functions.
You will be an active, diplomatic leader with a vocal point of view, serving as a vanguard for expressive design and new standards defined by their team. You’ll also have an uncanny sense for envisioning and driving high-order logistics that help scale the team and function, and promote a high bar for craft and quality across the organization. You will significantly influence the experience for global users. Accordingly, it is critical that you have a prowess for empathetic, inclusive design that accounts for end-to-end user journeys which extend across a manifold of users, geographies, devices, products, and services.
