Job Summary: 

The Senior Content Marketing Specialist is an experienced writer, editor and content creator with a unique talent for producing and assigning both long and short form content. You have experience writing and editing website copy, blogs, customer success stories, white papers, and in-depth research reports. A data-driven content marketer, you understand how to intelligently grow organic traffic in ways that support both business growth and brand awareness goals. (SEO is an acronym that makes your heart race—in the best of ways.)

 You’ve managed a content calendar, owned content creation for successful blogs (ideally in the EdTech sector) and know how to measure content’s efficacy to inform future output and/or capitalize on existing optimization opportunities. An experienced editor, you’ve managed writers (both in-house and external) and helped elevate content quality by implementing best practices that enable a content team to scale in sustainable ways (think blog briefs, resources and tools, etc.). You are constantly cooking up ways to deliver engaging content across the marketing funnel and are super comfortable working cross-functionally to get the job done.

  • Develop and execute traffic-generating content ideas based on SEO research, competitor research and internal feedback and requests  
  • Continually optimize blog content for search and help to develop an ongoing SEO strategy   
  • Pull and analyze key metrics to measure the effectiveness of your content efforts, and use that analysis to inform and improve content creation 
  • Manage third-party writers and industry experts to produce top quality content at scale 
  • Oversee content production and project management for a small internal team of writers, keeping deliverables on track and teammates happy

  • Demonstrated experience using content marketing tactics to grow organic traffic and generate leads and sales
