Content Strategist

Creative · FREDERICK, Maryland
Department Creative
Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Experienced
Compensation $70,000 - $120,000

You’ve always been a bit different - in a good way.


You tell jokes to yourself based on bad ads. You critique advertising to whoever is with you and puns… well, good puns are rare, and most are just lazy.


You’ve been working in the agency field for years and you’re feeling the itch to do bigger things.


Your ideas are good, award-winning in fact.


You’re experienced enough to know how to get things done, yet still love the craft like a beginner.  The pitch is your performance, and your work is the mic drop.


You love being a part of a team, and you’re a natural at helping those around you achieve your vision.


Clients desire to have you on their account because frankly, you get it.


We are looking for someone to blow the doors off our creative work.


We’ve been working a building an effective marketing firm for over 13 years and now we need to “level up” our creative to capture bigger clients. We are talking to international brands in the B2B tech space that will make this agency nationally known if we can win them.


We offer competitive compensation, benefits, etc, but we know that's not the top concern for you.


If this sounds like you, we should meet.

 

IF YOU LOVE...

  • proving to unbelievers that the creative side of marketing isn't "fluff", it leads to demonstrable results.
  • pitching new ideas and winning the account with the marriage of creative and data.
  • working alongside designers (or designing yourself) digital assets that prospects can't ignore.
  • writing great messaging that provokes action and response.
  • collaborating with like-minded marketing craftsmen and craftswomen to create work.
  • proving that the key to a good creative is the message mix of verbal and visual.

 

WHAT YOU HAVE PROBABLY DONE...

  • You received a BA/BS in something like English, Marketing, Advertising, Liberal Arts, etc.
  • You have worked for 3+ years in a senior role (content strategist, creative director, or similar creative role), in a B2B context, ideally.
  • You have a solid portfolio of content with clients that demonstrate your experience.
  • You can tie your work back to campaigns that generated bottom-line results.
  • You have done creative for several different segments of the technology industry (hardware, SaaS, consulting, etc.)
  • You have won awards for your work, but you also realize that award-winning-work is often more pretty than practical (and that irks you)

 

A DAY IN THE LIFE...

9 am - Arrive at the office in beautiful downtown Frederick, grab a cup of fresh roasted coffee, and have a laugh or two with the team.


10 am - Have our daily all-hands meeting with the team. Great work is accomplished through collaboration.


11 am – You pitch a few new messaging concepts to a new client (which they loved). Afterward, you and the team bounce additional ideas off each other, and you can't wait to get started.


12 pm - Lunch outside on our porch where you get to know others on the team a bit more


1 pm - You sit with the SEM specialist and write a few new text ad variations. You leave confident that they will really engage with the client's audience and can't wait to see the results.


2 pm – You jump on a call to talk through a whitepaper that a contractor is working on. You walk through the outline you had put together previously to guide the messaging flow.


3 pm - You sit down to write the content for the homepage of a new website we are building. You come up with a brilliant one-liner to pull visitors in.


4 pm - The whole team comes together, and we have our weekly meeting. We talk big picture, review client feedback, and work through a few issues that popped up throughout the week.


5:30 pm - You wrap up some loose ends on an article you were working on and head home after what seemed like a fast and productive day.


But every day is not the same. Other days include writing newsletters, big pitches, or deep thinking and brainstorming. Your day is all about driving the quality of our creative product to a new level.

 

WHAT WE ARE OFFERING...

  • A $70,000 to $95,000 salary. The more experience you have, the closer you will be to the upper-end.
  • Health, Dental, and Vision.
  • While the role is primarily in-house, we offer flexible schedules that account for being a human being.
  • An annual profit-sharing plan.
  • Cool creative office space located in downtown Frederick MD.
  • A team that is on a mission and loves to work.
  • A chance to be part of something big.
