Packaging Designer at
Google

The Opportunity

The Hardware and Retail Marketing organization is responsible for driving the growth of Google's hardware brands, including but not limited to Google Pixel, Google Home, Pixelbook, wearables and accessories. We partner with product teams to understand the user, shape the product roadmap, and bring products to market through coordinated global media campaigns. Google is committed to building radically effective experiences for customers at the intersection of hardware, software and artificial intelligence, and we’re growing the team.

As a Packaging Designer, you will work on design from concept to production, ensuring brand consistency in color, typography, photography, feel, and overall appearance.

You will shape the future by designing, developing, and executing on unique packaging experiences that harness the power of Google to delight and inspire people worldwide. Collaborating with our Leads and Directors, you will participate on projects from concept through to production. You will also play a design leadership role on assigned projects, and collaborate with all members of cross-functional teams executing against brand and/or product positioning to ensure success.

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.
