Our clients can run all their digital business through Basis, with robust business intelligence, workflow automation, search and social integrations, and the number one rated DSP.
We’re taking the digital advertising world by storm and are proud to be headquartered in the rapidly growing tech hub of Chicago, with offices that span across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Join us in our mission to improve the lives of everyone working in the industry!
At Centro, we believe that lasting success is achieved through continual dedication to the growth and well-being of the individual. Our people are the core of what makes Centro unique. Driven by the Centro Manifesto and our guiding principles, we look to hire the best and brightest minds—curious, passionate learners who are driven to create impact.
We are committed to building a culture of highly motivated individuals who create a positive and supportive environment together. When we work hard, stay focused, and act in service to others, we believe that anything is possible. Come grow with us!
This team of highly motivated and innovative thinkers develops internal and external messaging for Centro’s brand and product, Basis. Beyond speaking to specific functionalities, they understand the value of implementing Basis within the ad tech industry and are responsible for communicating those messages throughout the marketplace. Powered by cross-functional collaboration, they go above and beyond by demonstrating how Centro and Basis improve the lives of those working in the ad tech industry.
The ideal candidate is a prolific and talented content creator, familiar with B2B content creation and/or has in-house/agency experience—one that knows how to draw an audience and drive action, who can quickly adapt to the Centro voice and produce various projects and blogs regularly to expand our company’s digital footprint, awareness, subscribers, and leads. We’re looking for a curious, wordsmith extraordinaire—a creative seller and solutionist, a trend-watcher—better yet, a trendsetter, a pragmatist, a project manager, and a storyteller. This individual will report to the Manager, Content Marketing.
We are in search of a bright mind who brings fresh ideas to the table, a critical thinker who can distill industry information, news and trends into compelling concepts, themes and copy that positions Centro as a thought leader in the ad tech industry space. This role requires a high level of creativity, attention to detail, and project management skills. You'll also contribute by:

  • Brainstorming and creating 1-2 free resources each month to drive leads, subscribers, awareness, and/or other important metrics (examples include, but are not limited to, marketing campaigns and paid digital advertising assets, long-form content such as e-books, whitepapers, infographics, guides, etc.; blog posts, emails, landing pages, video scripts, social media, event materials, and more).
  • Blogging on an ongoing basis in support of other projects to attract site visitors through search, social, and email subscribers.
  • Learning, innovating, and identifying new and more enticing ways to tell and share the Centro brand story.
  • Growing our subscriber base by providing regular, helpful content that’s in-tune with their needs.
  • Collaborating closely with designers, product marketing, sales, external influencers, and industry experts to produce relevant content that meets the needs of key stakeholders and our audiences—and learning, innovating, and identifying new and more enticing ways to tell and share the Centro brand story.
  • Leaning on your subject matter expertise to research and write on a wide range of topics within the digital advertising industry. 
  • Stewarding the brand voice to ensure Centro’s personality is defined and differentiated; ensuring content is consistent and on-brand (style, tone of voice) and optimized for search and social across all channels (i.e., mobile, video, email, etc.).
  • Leading and leveraging best practices in grammar, writing, and style.
  • Managing multiple, high-priority projects and making sure copy deliverables are met on a daily/weekly basis.
  • Acting as a mentor; share experiences/perspectives with the rest of the team. 


  • Minimum of 5+ years of B2B copywriting experience, in-house or agency.
  • Minimum of 5+ years of experience producing digital content specifically, as well as channel-specific knowledge (i.e., blog, mobile, social media, video).
  • Bachelor's degree in English, Journalism, Communications, or related equivalent experience.
  • Ability to confidently present/sell your concepts, work, and ideas. 
  • In-depth knowledge of WordPress to blog and produce smart CTAs according to visitor lifestyle stages—and an advanced understanding of SEO-driven content and the ability to create it.
  • Strong collaborator with ability to work across various departments and teams to create results.
  • Positive, open, and curious individual who thrives working in a high-performing team environment.
  • A dual-minded approach: You’re highly creative and an excellent writer, but can also be process-driven, think scale, and rely on data to make decisions. 
  • Operates with low ego and shows a willingness to jump in and help where it is needed most.
  • Must have a portfolio of writing samples to show a range of work.


  • An eye for design or graphic design skillset; familiarity with Adobe Creative Suite.

We take care of our people. Our team has put together a thoughtful benefits package and provides a wide range of perks, including competitive 401k/RRSP matching, a tax-free health savings account, tuition reimbursement, generous maternity/paternity leave, and more.
Centro is committed to maintaining a culture where we trust our employees to do their best work. We believe results matter more than where they are produced. Currently, we offer our employees choice and flexibility on whether they’d like to work: in one of our office locations (once they open back up post-pandemic!), completely remote, or a hybrid of the two. These arrangements vary based on your situation as well as the needs of the team and role.
We’re always finding new ways to invest in the personal and professional growth our employees. We’re proud to support a variety of employee-led communities that enrich our culture of uniqueness, inclusivity, and empowerment. Centro is more than a workplace.

An Insider's view of Centro

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

Instead of balancing work and life, it’s about blending the two. As a parent, I may need to leave for part of the day or before 5. Everyone here understands and I don’t feel guilty. Even if I’m not sitting at my desk from 9-5, my work and my teams work will still be done on time. Centro is giving me the opportunity to live the best life I can.

Matt Klaers

Manager, Financial Reporting

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

There’s an incredible balance of freedom, drive, and fun that I’ve only experienced at Centro. On an engineering team retreat this summer, the plan was to code from 10 AM – 2 PM on a fun team-based competition and then go outside to enjoy the day. The team would not stop coding until 10 PM! Of course, this was followed by 6 hours of karaoke.
