Create ongoing client status reports, analyzing campaign results in collaboration with Account Managers and Fulfillment team members
Maintain internal organization systems to track proposal completion and report generation
Proactively seek out the latest industry trends and tools to enhance proposal templates and other sales collateral
Provide copyediting support to all teams within Special Projects as needed
What You Bring
Excellent written, analytical, and copyediting skills with the ability to communicate using different “voices” for different audiences and business needs
Experience using data to guide strategic and creative choices
Knack for synthesizing bullet point inputs and ad-hoc conversations into impactful content
Strong eye for design with exceptional attention to detail
Ability to quickly learn and incorporate new digital tools and technologies; experience with social and digital analytics tools is a plus
High level of personal accountability and enthusiasm for learning new topics and sharing knowledge with others; you’re a self-starter who’s always looking for new ways to challenge yourself
Up to 3 years professional experience or equivalent educational background in Communications, Writing, Public Relations, or Sales/Business Strategy—though we’re open to tech-savvy storytellers with less traditional backgrounds
