Insights Planner, Marketing Insights (Nairobi)

About the job

The goal of the Marketing Insights team is to understand how users behave and how they use our products, how they perceive and interact with our brands, what impact our media communications and messages have on their perceptions and behaviors, and what cultural and social influences shape how they view the world around them.

As an Insights Planner, you’ll be a research enthusiast always focused on the audience (which could be users or businesses), you’ll use data and insights to craft meaningful stories, and will communicate research in a way everyone can understand – from product to marketing and sales teams.

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.

Minimum qualifications:

Bachelor’s degree or equivalent practical experience within marketing insights and research
Experience managing third-party research agencies and multi-country research studies
Experience working cross-functionally with multiple stakeholders within a business
Preferred qualifications:

Demonstrated technical expertise and knowledge of Google technology (Google Ads), the internet, and social media
Ability to think strategically and be a brand builder with a range of experience
Ability to influence and shape cross-functional strategy
Ability to work independently or as part of a team/partnership with marketing/research
Ability to translate complex ideas into simple and intuitive communications; excellent project management and organizational skills
