Here's how you'll make an impact:

  • Content Creation: you'll own our content pipeline and treat our content calendar as your first born. You'll generate new ideas for topics that will help today's job-seekers and generate engagement in measurable ways.
  • Research and idea generation: you'll conduct keyword research and suggest new ideas to grow our content marketing pipeline.
  • Campaign Strategy: you'lll work closely with our leadership team and design team to help develop social media and e-mail marketing campaigns to build our audience and generate engagement in measurable ways.

  • We'd love to see you in the office 10-15 hours per week, but you also have the ability to work from home - it's 2018 😜
