Benjamin Liebald

San Francisco, California, United States

I lead the Personalization, Homepage Ranking, and Leanback teams at YouTube. Over one billion people around the world use our products every month. In 2013, our work on video recommendations was recognized with a Technology & Engineering Emmy Award. Interested in working on hard technical problems with lots of impact? Drop me a note!

Outside of work, I'm an avid runner (Marathon PR 2:42, but I also run shorter road races, some trail races, and the occasional team relay) and general outdoor enthusiast. I grew up in Germany, moved back and forth between the US and Europe several times, and currently live in San Francisco with my wife and 8 months old son.
