Job Description

This position requires a blend of marketing and editorial mindsets. The ideal candidate will be able to balance the client’s marketing objectives with what works from an editorial perspective (two things that are not always well aligned).

Intelligence, Research, Product Marketing, and Sales to aggregate and distill data into insights. Our desire is to create relevant, innovative content that both our clients and our users love. The insights supplied by the Content Strategist are integral to our achievement of this goal.


  • Distill quantitative data from numerous sources to come up with unique insights to make our ideas great.
  • Leverage our proprietary analytics to understand what types of editorial content are resonating with any given target audience.
  • Translate performance data from both our sites as well as external platforms like Facebook, YouTube, etc. into a POV on what works best and hypotheses on what might work better.
  • Utilize syndicated research to round out our picture of the target audience
  • Develop a broad understanding of our properties including audience, editorial
  • voice, etc.
  • Track trends, current and upcoming, in the industries related to our clients and properties
  • Lead internal brainstorms with your findings on a RFP and guide the discussion / idea-creation
