About the job

The Creative Lab is a small team of designers, writers, programmers, filmmakers, producers and business thinkers whose mission is to remind the world what it is they love about Google. Our job is to make Google’s magic more magical, help advance and invent Google’s future, and to communicate Google’s innovations, intentions and ideals in ways that makes us all immensely proud.

As a Creative Technologist, you will be pushing technical and creative boundaries. You will have the curiosity and interest in guiding experiences and communication through code. You will implement machine learning on products, development of interactive interfaces, front-ends, visualizations, physical prototypes native applications, and web-based products, including server-side implementation. You will work with a team of designers, writers, filmmakers, programmers, and creative tinkerers, while representing the technical side of the Creative Lab, and foster outside agency relationships as well as internal coordination with engineers and researchers. You will be required to sit in our New York offices in a hybrid working capacity.

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.
