Content Strategist

Content strategy is nothing new for us. Since 2003, content strategy has been baked into our user-centered process from concept to launch. Our Content Strategists are equal partners with Designers for all of our engagements, and they often lead engagements.

You share our passion for customer experience and problem-solving. You play well with others but you aren't afraid to stand up for what you think is right. You're diplomatic and flexible, and you've got what it takes to influence others. You see the big picture, but you also find satisfaction in making every detail right.

You know the difference between content strategy and writing, and you do both well. You love words, but you understand that content is much more than just copy. You consider the whole experience.

* Working with project teams to understand business goals and identify customer needs
* Partnering with product managers, project managers, developers, business analysts, legal/compliance, and more
* Performing light interaction design and information architecture

We'd like to see your work, so we may ask qualified applicants to electronically submit writing samples as well as interim deliverables including but not limited to: design briefs, content inventories, and strategy recommendations.
