ALEX Marketing Writer Job Description

Jellyvision is hiring an ALEX Marketing Writer

Who we are

We at Jellyvision are the proud parents of ALEX®, an interactive employee communications platform that makes tricky decisions—like choosing and using employee benefits—easier and more enjoyable. The success of ALEX has exceeded our wildest work-related dreams, which is why we need a talented Marketing Writer to help us.

How you’ll help

You’ll work closely with the Director of Content Marketing to create a wide range of content that will help our revenue team meet its yearly sales goals. The ideal candidate is a super-talented writer and ruthless editor with B2B marketing experience, the ability to write in Jellyvision’s witty brand voice, strong ideas about visual content, the ability to craft messages tailored to various audiences, and a collaborative spirit. 

P.S. Your cover letter should both make a thoughtful case for why you’re “the one” and showcase your unusually strong writing skills.

What you’ll do, specifically

  • Quickly become a student of all the audiences we’re trying to reach: benefits consultants; HR, total rewards, and financial wellness pros of all kinds; and other ALEX partners 
  • Create a variety of new webinar presentations—a task that involves figuring out what advice to share; writing a natural-sounding, entertaining, talk track for the presenter; and working with our illustrators and designers to make eye-catching slides 
  • Write not-boring digital guides about a variety of benefits-related topics 
  • Write articles for the ALEX blog, HR trade magazines and general business websites (CNBC.com, Inc.com) that provide advice on benefits communication or commentary on industry trends
  • Write punchy, eye-catching, helpful sales emails and tee-ups for social media posts
  • Work with our design and UX teams to create other sales collateral -- product sheets, interactive web pages, print and video testimonials (and more)
  • Help make ongoing content improvements to our company website
  • Own the voice of Jellyvision on our social media channels, creating updates that share our content, establish connections with industry voices, and promote our brand and culture 

Experience & skills you’ll need

  • Ideally, you have 5+ years of marketing writing experience in the B2B space; bonus points if you have healthcare industry, creative writing or journalism experience
  • You’re an unusually good, unusually versatile content creator -- as comfortable coming up with an apt, funny metaphor to clarify a tricky concept as you are with creating persuasive arguments based on curated industry statistics 
  • You aim to make every project great, but you’re not precious about your work: you know how to navigate feedback from a variety of stakeholders
  • You can put your writer-blinders on when you need to crank out something on a tight deadline, but you’re also highly conscientious of what your teammates need, and when -- and you communicate accordingly
  • The marketing team is evolving quickly, so being flexible is a big plus
  • CMS and marketing automation experience, bonus points for experience with WordPress, Showpad and Marketo

Skills:

  • Customer focus
  • Action-oriented
  • Resourcefulness
  • Communicates effectively
  • Nimble learning
  • Drives results
  • Collaborates

Anything else?

Our credo is a simple one: be helpful. And we think we can be most helpful if our workforce is as diverse in thought, perspective, and culture as the people who use our products. We are looking to add amazing people to our team who will bring diversity across many lines, including race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, gender identity, sex, and country of origin.

Thanks for your interest in Jellyvision!

An Insider's view of Jellyvision

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Jellyvision is a place where I truly feel like leadership wants me to be healthy/happy. They really show me they want you to have a work/life balance. The company does everything they can to avoid unwarranted stress with unlimited PTO, flexible Working From Home, emails reminding me to take care of myself, and ways to get help from my teammates.

Drew

Implementation Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

I am most excited about the diversity, equity, and inclusion projects that I get to be a part of. We’re have emerging Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) that have engendered out of a toolkit our department created, streamlined trainings, and a diversity & inclusion strategic framework in place to name a few!

Jeomar

Recruiting & Onboarding Coordinator

How does the company support your career growth?

At Jellyvision, you don’t just hear from your manager when you’ve done something wrong. Jellyvision is big on positive feedback and celebrating success. In my experience, management has been great at helping me identify what my strengths are and pointing me in that direction as I progress here.

Senior Customer Development Representative

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Implementation is a team of ballers, constantly impressing me with new ideas. Our most recent ideas are new classes around Professional Development and a pilot approach to quickly implement customers. These ideas came from folks on the team. When my coworkers have these ideas, my job is to give them the support and resources to run with them.

Alex

VP of Implementation

What are Jellyvision Perks + Benefits

Jellyvision Benefits Overview

* Competitive pay, 401(k) with matching and benefits. We pay 100% of the cost of premiums for medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance for our employees (as long as you qualify for our tobacco-free discount; if you’re a tobacco user, your medical premiums will be higher than $0). We also cover a really nice chunk of the cost of premiums for spouse/dependent medical, dental and vision insurance.

* Casual dress and a flexible schedule. Come in a sweatshirt, jeans, whatever, like everyone else here.
Creative work environment. We are lucky to work in a place that is full of intelligent, talented and innovative folks. Although most hours the place is deathly quiet (we're a focused bunch), this is punctuated with hilarious outbursts and general merriment, which makes a nice way to spend the day.

* Free food. Every week, we stock our kitchen with free healthy snack foods, and we have a catered lunch every other week to give people a reason to hang out and eat together.

* Easy transportation and lots of love for folks who bike to work. We’re really close to the North/Clybourn red line stop and the Halsted (#8) bus (right by the Apple Store and Mega Whole Foods too), and we have a transit FSA that allows you to dedicate pre-tax dollars to public transportation expenses. A number of our employees like to bike to work, so we also have bike storage, showers and lockers in the office. And for those without their own bike in the city, we offer free divvy memberships – complete with Jellyvision bike helmets you can borrow from the office.

* Did we mention our yoga and meditation classes? We bring a pro instructor right to the office. Fully subsidized by Jellyvision and fully optional, btw.

* Oh! And we have a massage chair. Not just any massage chair, my friend. It’s the Renew 2 Zero-Gravity Massage Chair by Brookstone®. Feeling a little stiff? Sit down. Relax. Feel better? Good. Okay, back to work.
