    About the job

    YouTube Marketing’s mission is to know our users, and to connect them to the magic of our products and creators. We make YouTube successful by shaping people’s perceptions of YouTube and inspiring them to engage with us. We’re also responsible for all of YouTube’s marketing activities to consumers, creators, and key opinion influencers.

    As a YouTube Shorts Trends Manager, you'll have the opportunity to shape and improve understanding of YouTube, viral internet culture, trending music, memes, and short form video content. You'll join the YouTube Culture and Trends team, which uses data to track trends, and connect YouTube stories and content to millions of people. This includes community-focused initiatives, as well as other projects built around popular content across entertainment, news, music, sports, and more.

    You'll manage efforts around popular trends, channels, and videos, and develop programming strategies, with a focus on short-form video and hashtags, helping support YouTube's Shorts feature. You'll leverage data and research to create positive, engaging user experiences on a daily basis and work with cross-functional teams to help users and creators better understand what's happening on YouTube. In this role, you will be immersed in the YouTube community and the daily social media conversation.

    At YouTube, we believe that everyone deserves to have a voice, and that the world is a better place when we listen, share, and build community through our stories. We work together to give everyone the power to share their story, explore what they love, and connect with one another in the process. Working at the intersection of cutting-edge technology and boundless creativity, we move at the speed of culture with a shared goal to show people the world. We explore new ideas, solve real problems, and have fun — and we do it all together.

    • Be an expert on the latest memes, hit songs, and content trends, tracking breakout hashtags and creators on a daily basis.

    • Leverage data to analyze the audience, drive program strategies, and support marketing and communication initiatives with culture and trends research.

    • Represent YouTube occasionally as a spokesperson or by delivering presentations about local trends to internal and external audiences.
