  • Develop insight-led marketing & campaign strategy that is right for EMEA
  • Design & drive insights roadmap
  • Creative testing

  • Strong strategic thinker and brand builder with a range of experience to bring to the role
  • The ability to influence, shape and create marketing, campaign and creative strategy
  • Experience managing third-party research agencies and complex, multi-country research studies
  • Demonstrated technical expertise and knowledge of Google technology, the Internet, and social media
  • Ability to work effectively cross-functionally and to make data and insights accessible to a non-expert audience
  • Strong analytical, communication, and presentation skills with the ability to be a self-starter and independent thinker
