ABOUT THE ROLE
We're looking for a Technical Copywriter (f/m) who will write attention-grabbing stories, telling the world about Contentful and making the readers want to know more about our product.
Your writing will take the form of blog posts, landing pages, Medium stories, articles in leading publications, advertisements on various platforms — and most likely this list is not exhaustive.
You'll be a part of the marketing team, working closely with the director of demand generation, the chief marketing officer, as well as with the team of copywriters and designers who have built the existing Contentful brand.
Write copy that captures and keeps the reader's attention — compelling stories, not just typical marketing phrases
You're adept at gathering the material for marketing communications by talking to technologists, marketers, and users, then identifying the themes, key points, and important vocabulary to use when you sit down to write
Develop creative content that is forward-thinking and in-line with current media trends
Take ownership and responsibility for your results and finish what you start
Offer creative ideas and encourage others to share theirs
You love technology and can comprehend and translate technical jargon into conversational English
Write clear, conversational, and technically correct English, prose and possess a strong command of grammar, spelling, and style
The ability to work independently, get tasks done quickly and earn the trust to do a good job with little supervision
Excel at interpersonal communication and active listening
A strong record in creating copy that stands out from the crowd
A keen attention to detail
Manage time effectively while working under tight deadlines
Proactively collaborating with colleagues from marketing, product management, customer success and our solution architects
It's a bonus if you also happen to publish regularly on your own blog or participate in developer communities like GitHub and StackOverflow, or participate in subject-specific conversations on Twitter
Join a real tech company that counts among its investor and advisors people like Adam Wiggins (Heroku) and Francesco Cesarini (Erlang Solutions)
