  • A background in copywriting
  • A minimum of 5 years of digital content marketing experience, ideally in an agency environment
  • Proven experience in building, maintaining and optimizing content calendars based on evolving client needs and marketing insights
  • A command of the full content creation process, from discovery and research through writing and QA
  • Demonstrated versatility in creating and refining content, from short-form social posts to long-form white papers and reports
  • Familiarity working in big, complex brands that require big ideas as well as execution precision
  • A gift for turning technical concepts into content that people actually want to read

  • The ability to think quickly on your feet, adapt to changing client needs and balance multiple workstreams efficiently in a fast-turn, high-volume production environment
  • A deep and abiding love of Associated Press style (and ability to root out copy errors in any document)
  • Experience managing and editing the work of other copywriters or editors


What you’ll do for us:

  • Lead the planning, production and optimization of content across assigned client accounts, working closely with our project management and creative teams to ensure all content is impactful, brand-adherent, delivered on time and based on channel best practices
  • Develop and maintain content calendars for clients and generate ideas based on brand objectives, competitor research and past performance
  • Immerse yourself in client brands to create cohesive content marketing programs and drive continuous improvement in brand consistency and quality over time
  • Produce content in multiple formats, including web content, blogs, emails and social media
  • Provide constructive feedback to other writers and editors (both internal and freelance) to uphold all client standards
  • Manage social media accounts on an as-needed basis, including identifying opportunities for off-page engagement
  • Work closely with our design team to conceptualize content that plays nicely with design across all digital formats
  • Lead occasional brand messaging and positioning exercises for clients under the direction of our Head of Content
  • Develop and maintain brand and editorial standards for clients as needed
  • Compile monthly social analytics and draw insights to shape content strategy
  • Identify priorities and manage multiple deadlines independently


What we’ll do for you:

  • Give you the chance to build your creative and leadership skills
  • Encourage you to learn, experiment and bring fresh ideas to the table
  • Trust you to own your work and measure success by outputs, not inputs

You’ll fit in here if you’re:

  • A go-getter (you don’t sit around to be told what to do, and a little ambiguity doesn’t scare you)
  • A creative at heart (everyone always thought you’d grow up to be a writer)
  • Responsible (people always liked working on group assignments with you in school)
  • Curious (you start with “why?”)
  • Meticulous (you always notice misspelled words in emails)
  • Honest, empathetic and kind (You give credit where credit is due. You celebrate others. You deliver constructive criticism and embrace feedback as an opportunity to continue growing and learning)
  • Eager to contribute to discussions that advance diversity, equity and inclusion within our work and as individuals
