Will Google consider other roles if I don’t get what I apply for?

I have an extensive background in software (8 years, early software lead at big name startups) and have previously declined solicited Google offers for SWE roles, but I have recent (3 years) experience as a director of product and think I actually have more to offer there.

If I apply for the product director role at YouTube or similar and don’t qualify, would I be referred to roles where I’d likely qualify like SDM?

(also would appreciate commentary on other FAANGMs too)

    How many YOE? All together? (I’m guessing the 8 years was just in leadership positions at big name startups)

      Bottom line, there’s a big world out there, don’t let that success get to your head...

    I failed to make it to on-site for the first role I applied to at Google (they told me it was a headcount thing). Reached back out to a different recruiter and got an SWE role.
