Head of UX, Google News Lead
Posted: Sep 13, 2019
We want to empower everyone to understand the world around them through access to high quality news.
The all new Google News launched at I/O last year and was a complete rethink of how we deliver news and interest based content. We want to empower everyone to understand the world around them through access to high quality news.
News and media play a huge part in how we learn about the world around us, mobile has really changed the way we consume that knowledge. As a result, this project is not just about how we optimise the content we have today, it's also about working with Publishers to influence an entire industry to create better storytelling tools for the future.
The lead for Google News is responsible for shaping Google's answers to these questions (in close partnership with her/his peers) and therefore, will determine our company's level of impact. The company whose News strategy we are tasked to define is capable of impact and influence - through our reach, our content and user understanding, and our relationship with the News ecosystem we can help shape the future.
This role is a great combination of pushing our technology and story modelling to enable a better informed society. Doing this as a product lead but also inspiring a leading a talented team on the same mission.
