Bateman Group Content Studio Hiring Strategist to Lead Growth Practice
Bateman Group is looking for a content strategist to help us build our team — a collective of creatives and strategists who are influencing the most important stories in technology.
Our Content Studio is led by Elinor Mills, a veteran technology writer formerly of CNET, AP, IDG, and Reuters, who joined Bateman Group as our first content hire in 2012. Since then, we’ve advanced our vision for the Content Studio and seen an increase in content needs from a range of industry-leading clients.
In 2016 our team of full-time writers and adjuncts produced more than 750 pieces of content, including more than 100 bylined articles placed in Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, Fortune, Forbes, Recode, TechCrunch, and many other publications.
As the Content Studio has evolved we’ve hired talented people whose passion for writing about technology matches Elinor’s — including James Niccolai, a 20-year journalist from IDG News Service, who joined the team last year as our enterprise expert and director of content and media strategy.
We’re now adding a content strategist to lead content programs for visionary technology brands in our Growth practice, which includes AdRoll, GumGum, LinkedIn, Optimizely, Segment, and Urban Airship.
Growth, a practice area we formerly called “Media and Marketing,” is purposefully broader than marketing and advertising technologies. As the lines between marketing, sales, digital media, and customer experience blur, companies in our Growth practice are using technology to drive smart growth. They’re finding new ways for businesses to connect with people through personal, predictive customer experiences.
We have the opportunity to work with some of the brightest thought leaders in this industry to tell stories that shape this burgeoning market. The category of Growth tech is coalescing alongside major shifts in consumer behavior; digital and social media; and marketing, sales, and advertising technologies. Our clients are exploring the ways in which social, economic, and technology trends — from the rise of the Millennial market to developments in AI, VR, and data-driven business models — are impacting businesses and consumers alike.
Sound interesting? You’d be a great fit for this role if you’re a professional writer with relevant domain expertise, experience managing content marketing/editorial programs, and a deep understanding of the PR and media landscape. We’re looking for someone who can turn client news and narratives into compelling stories in the form of executive op-eds, analytical articles, blog posts, data reports, and other digital content. Our ideal candidate is a creative, critical thinker who blends client services and team management chops, and can work independently as well as part of a collaborative, ambitious team.
