We’re looking for a Content Marketer to join our growth marketing team!  If you’re looking to be part of a marketing team that’s tackling big problems with creativity and imagination, then this may be the role for you. As marketers, we are especially excited about being data-driven and thinking outside the box and our growth strategy is driven by content. So, we need someone to help us scale and create content to hit our goals.

Okay, but what do we actually do? We are doing something really exciting at Narrative Science; building the future data + analytics. We create software that writes stories from data- it’s the first of its kind technology. So, we’ve got a lot to say about how the world interacts with data.

  • Content Production - Act as the main planner, creator, editor, and producer of Narrative Science content including; blog posts, videos, webinars, podcast clips, social media posts, books, and more. Consistently test out different types of content. Source content from third parties as well as original content from inside the compant.
  • Repurposing & Promotion - Ensure that we have a repurposing strategy for every content piece we publish in order to maximize promotion.

Work closely with the growth team to determine what is needed per piece.
  • Short-Form Copy - Assist other members of the Narrative Science team in the creation of short-form copy. This includes emails, content descriptions, web and landing pages, social media posts, in-app messaging, and more. Work to create copy that resonates with our target audience, and clearly articulates the goal of the piece.
  • Reporting: Analyze and make suggestions based on your findings about how content is performing and where we should be spending more or less time

  • Teamwork: You work towards common goals effectively by supporting, encouraging, and sharing information with your team.
  • Adaptability: You adjust quickly to changing priorities and conditions and cope effectively with complexity and change. You have a ‘roll your sleeves up’ entrepreneurial attitude.
  • High Standards: You expect personal performance and team performance to be nothing short of the best.
  • Attention to Detail: You do not let important details slip through the cracks. You triple-check each piece of content for grammatical mistakes, video glitches, etc. 
  • Proactivity: You act without being told what to do, bring new ideas to the company, and are willing to dive in and figure things out. You look outside of yourself for inspiration.

An Insider's view of Narrative Science

What are some social events your company does?

The Social Committee (which is comprised of volunteers from different teams) plans various events throughout the year including company outings and gathering to embody the company culture. Thanks to this committee, employees enjoy in-person and virtual events; pop-up game nights, annual Oktoberfest, a Summer and Holiday party among ad hoc events.


Product Marketing Manager & Associate Designer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

At Narrative Science, teams collaborate every day. When it comes to background, experience, and points of view, we are a very diverse company, and our employees take full advantage of that. It isn't uncommon to see functional teams pulling in members from other teams to work on initiatives together or even just to get another opinion.


Director of Growth Marketing

What makes someone successful on your team?

The people that succeed on the Narrative Science Customer Success team are those who are naturally curious, have a bias for action, and put the company first. Our team is ultimately responsible for building relationships, solving problems, and creating exceptional experiences for our customers.


Director of Customer Success

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

At Narrative Science, we support a spectrum of innovation ranging from our standard engineering process, through Hack Days and Hackathons, to our ongoing Incubator team. Narrative Science is only successful if we hire smart and self-motivated people, so we’re committed to giving them the support and space they need to innovate.


Chief Scientist

What are some things you learned at the company?

On the job learning isn’t just a role description, it’s a reality. In 6 months, I have learned Python scripting, HTML tagging, and API configuration. Colleagues taught me about NLG & NLP, Gross & Net Retention, and freshwater & saltwater eels. But most importantly, NS has taught me that we shouldn’t be afraid of data, data should be afraid of us.
