About the job

Google Play gives you one place to find, enjoy and share your favorite entertainment, from apps, games, movies, music, TV shows, books and more. With more than 1 billion active users in 190+ countries around the world, Google Play is an important global distribution platform for developers. Google Play offers a variety of digital content for your devices, powered by the cloud, syncing magically across all your devices and on the web.

Android, the world's most popular mobile platform with approximately 3 billion monthly active devices worldwide, is Google's open-source mobile operating system that powers smartphones, tablets, TVs, set-top boxes, and cars. Starting as a bold idea to advance open standards in mobile, the Android ecosystem continues to grow and the pace of innovation has never been greater, offering users choice and diversity. We're focused on creating consistent, reliable and secure experiences within a strong ecosystem, making them available to as many people as possible.

As Director, Product Management, Google Play and Android Trust, you will be responsible for being the "voice of the community," earning trust with the developer community through routine outreach and engagement. In addition, this will at times include critiquing our own decisions and challenging the product teams to do better. The focus is particularly around articulating our approach to Google Play and Android policies, framing them in the context of the broader ecosystem, and being the voice back to the team about how policy and enforcement are affecting the community.


  • Be the face and voice of the Google Play and Android developer ecosystems, with an emphasis on explaining challenging topics, building community trust in solutions, and giving voice to the needs of Android developers.
  • Develop an exceptionally broad, active following on social media among the developer community.
  • Engage publicly through interviews, industry events, conferences, and other forums.
  • Maintain a high-level of trust and credibility with the external community, internal partner teams, and Google Play and Android leadership.
  • Collaborate across Business Development, Policy, Developer Relations, Developer Experience, and Google Play teams to articulate key challenges for developers and build a better Google Play and Android experience.
