Intoducing Ads Developer Relations Team
The Ads DevRel team is a very global team (we're spread over 10 locations!) working to support our developers across multiple products. You've already met some of us during the workshops and talked to us on the forum. We'd like to take it one step forward and introduce everyone on the team to you, uncovering what's behind the scenes.
This week we're introducing +Marc Wandschneider
Hi, my name is Marc Wandschneider, and I'm brand new to Google — I've only been here a few months. I grew up in Canada, worked for Microsoft in the 1990s, and then moved around before settling in China for seven years. I've recently moved back to the West to work for Google in London.
I'm very passionate about both Node.JS and mobile device programming, so am always looking for projects that will let me combine my daytime job working with AdWords with these other technologies.
I currently am spending a lot of my time learning about what it is I do for a living. This is a completely new area for me, so I'm having to put a lot of energy into learning about the AdWords API and the partners whom I will be helping. I am also desperately trying to stay thin with all of the free food they throw at us here at Google. It's complete and utter madness.
Indeed, the APIs we work with are often so feature rich and powerful, that we have to spend a little bit of time figuring out how to make it all work exactly as we wish. It can be pretty complicated some times.
I'm really enjoying working for Google. I'm quite proud to work for a company that takes its customers privacy and data security so seriously. It's hard making everybody happy, but I think we have a great balance here.
In my spare time, I love to travel, learn languages, do yoga, and motorcycle. I'm also a licensed airplane pilot, but haven't done that in some years. If I get some free time, I might pick it up again!
I'm always excited to work on cool new projects, and hope to be able to contribute to some cool new stuff here at Google over the next few years. #adsdevrelteam
