After the creation of a Web3 team in Google Cloud May 6, tech giant Alphabet is now looking for a permanent candidate to head its Global Web3 marketing strategy.

The job posting shows that the Google Cloud division has created a Head of Product Marketing role. This will allow the individual to raise awareness about Google Cloud’s Web3 initiatives and build customer demand for related products.

Amit Zavery (Vice president of Google Cloud) shared his vision of making Google Cloud the top choice for Web3 developers in an email that was shared with employees just before the start-up of the Web3 team.

Web3 is still in its infancy, but it is a market with tremendous potential. Many customers have asked us to support Web3 and other crypto-related technologies.

The key responsibilities of this role include leading marketing initiatives and creating annual Web3 plans.

Only New York, San Francisco and Seattle are the only locations for this job. Although Google is known for creating and destroying many in-house initiatives over time, this is Google’s first venture into the Web3.
