Yana Yushkina ’10 is the product lead for Search in Chrome.

Yana took an unorthodox path to her current role. She studied economics and French at Amherst and spent her early career working in economics consulting and data analytics before she transitioned into product management and the technology field at Google.

As a Product Lead for Search at Chrome, she steers the work of two dozen product managers, user experience designers and researchers, and software engineers to make Chrome an effective place to find information on the internet. She also frequently partners cross-company with teams in Search, Ads, Lens, and other divisions.

Yana is an active product person and speaker — one who is passionate about using data-driven development to make high-quality, easy-to-use products for users around the world. She is excited to share her story and insight with students of all class years and majors who are considering various roles in technology both behind and beyond the keyboard.
