A Year at YouTube

Sharing a bit about my experience and what I've learned working on the Strategic Bets product team at YouTube, focusing on live TV and streaming monetization.

Launching GAMER, Spring 2021

April 6, 2021

Today at reโ€”inc, we launched GAMER. A collection in the making for decades, colorfully depicting the greatest game of all - representation and equity. Gamer is inspired by the stories of women, BIPOC, and activists who are boldly disrupting the field of gaming and beyond.



I'm Maya, a design- and business-minded creator interested in companies, problems, and initiatives that empower people. Always making and sharing good things โ€” working in aspiration of putting them all together soon enough.

I became interested in technology after starting a D2C swimwear brand as a high school student based in Miami, breaking even during the first year of launch. After then developing a website and app for an AP study platform that reached 500K+ users, I decided to pursue a career in tech, curious by product and design.

I've helped lead the execution and design of scalable products and initiatives across different spaces. I've planned a launch strategy for 300M+ queries per day on Google Search, designed helpful tools for SMBs at Facebook, researched growth and subscription models at Rent the Runway, and led a mobility product team at Cornell. I've also founded several side projects including a community program called Backyard and a female empowerment platform and newsletter called Let's Hear It.

Recently, I led a monetization-focused product team at YouTube, growing the company's efforts in streaming and live TV. Now working on Google Maps, leading the next line of efforts to empower merchants and consumers on the app. I also support reโ€”inc, a purpose-driven startup championing equity, creativity, progress, and art.
