X is Alphabet’s moonshot factory. We are a diverse group of inventors and entrepreneurs who build and launch technologies that aim to improve the lives of millions, even billions, of people. Our goal: 10x impact on the world’s most intractable problems, not just 10% improvement. We approach projects that have the aspiration and riskiness of research with the speed and ambition of a startup.
About the Team:
X is a moonshot factory. Our inventors, engineers, designers, and makers apply audacious thinking and radical new technology to huge problems. We tackle ideas that have the riskiness of research and run at them with the focus and speed of a startup. Our goal is to develop and de-risk early-stage technologies and turn them into products that can be the foundation for large, sustainable businesses.
You’ll join a team focused on amplifying and empowering the incredible people of X, showcasing X and its projects to the outside world in inspirational ways, and activating our home in Mountain View as the destination for radical innovation.
About the role:
X runs many different experiments and projects, with moonshot teams exploring fields as diverse as ocean health, decarbonization, computational biology, clean energy, and high speed Internet connectivity. We’re looking for a seasoned, hands-on marcomm leader to partner with these diverse projects and shape their marketing and communications strategies.
You’ll bring energy, creativity, curiosity, media savvy, strategic thinking, and smart judgment to helping these projects reach key audiences and share their moonshots with the world. You’ll be an adept storyteller, passionate about telling project stories in compelling ways across a variety of channels. You’ll integrate marketing campaigns that tie together content, social, media, and events. And you’ll share your deep experience in designing and implementing public relations, marketing, and business development plans for early stage companies.
How you will make 10X impact:
Advise project teams on messaging and positioning
Develop marcomm plans in partnership with the project’s lead
Direct speaker and influencer programs to drive awareness of X moonshots

Demonstrated interest in the fields of science and technology
Excellent written and verbal communications skills

A love of lifelong learning
Based in the Bay Area
It’d be great if you also had these:
A deep knowledge of the innovation ecosystem, and strong contacts across the industry
A demonstrated interest in climate and sustainability. (More than half of X’s current projects are focused on climate mitigation and adaptation efforts.)
Strong contacts across business and tech media
Experience leading a strategic marketing and communications program to advance an organization’s mission.
