Content Writer

| Chicago

How does your role create impact?

Beautifully written and engaging content helps us connect with our customers. As an experienced marketing writer, you’ll know how to communicate effectively to the people who need to know.

By creating both sales centric and industry level supporting pieces, you’ll ensure our customer base is catered to with helpful guiding content, as well as simple and clear reasons to purchase from us (should they so desire).

Who are you?

You’re an experienced B2B marketer who understands that businesses are made up of people, too. You’ll be an storyteller with a love of words, and be a dab hand at using as few as possible to be both entertaining and informative. With knowledge of how to write for varied channels and audiences, you will both enjoy the challenge of being condensed to 280 characters (And still try to keep the old 140, for kicks), while also enjoying the freedom to indulge in a larger, heavily researched, long form piece.

You enjoy the opportunity to interview subjects, and independently research, to bring stories to life. Your attention to detail is second to none, and you can identify even the slightest discrepancies with tone. You’re quietly ashamed of how frequently you judge the copy of others, but just wish you were able to fix it.

What are you responsible for?

You’ll be responsible for creating and publishing across a wide range of channels and will know how to write for everything from social posts, sales collateral, blogs, case studies and more. As part of the global marketing team, you’ll be working with others to pitch, and create, pieces that are in line with the strategic objectives of the team.

Working in partnership with our digital team, you’ll also be responsible for using your skills to bring our online presence to life. You’ll consult with our digital team and their knowledge of SEO, and keyword research, to create the perfect ad copy for retargeting, or the highest converting landing page we’ve ever had. And if a landing page isn’t converting? You’ll adjust the copy until it does.

What should you possess?

  • You’ll have at least 3 years of experience developing content in the form of blogs, sales collateral, customer case studies, ebooks, social media writing, website landing pages and so on.
  • Prioritisation and time management skills that allow you to both pitch for the year-long case study, while also keeping our regular blog activity moving.
  • Ability to work cross functionally (marketing, sales, customer success), and across multiple time zones.
  • Ability to think strategically and understand the business needs and requirements - that while you may not always enjoy writing landing page variations (because the first one is perfect, of course), you know that we need those words in order to truly test our efforts.
  • The ability to write sharply, beautifully, with purpose, and with a clear understanding of who you’re writing for.
  • Some work that you are proud of. Please include links to 3 pieces you’d like considered as part of your application.

Insider's spotlight

What's something quirky about your company?

Our CEO always tells our people to embrace what makes us weird, and I think we really take that to heart in the Chicago office. Jokes fly around the office, folks work out together at lunch, and we practice radical candor regularly. Together we create an environment that brings out the best in one another.

Megan

Global People Experience Coordinator

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Ansarada takes steps to ensure that it’s most pressing matters are assessed from every perspective. This atmosphere of cohesion is reinforced with a structure of industry-specific pods that are comprised of individuals from sales, marketing and customer success, each merging unique individual experiences to apply new insights to old problems.

Justin

Account Executive, Consumer

How does the company support your career growth?

I started at Ansarada on the Customer Success team, then transitioned into a pseudo Sales Development role and then became an Account Executive all within two years. Leadership in the US facilitated my growth and placement from CS to Sales based on my strengths and personal desires. If you have the drive, you will get where you want to be.

Meg

Account Executive, Technology

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

We have a culture of transparency at Ansarada, and that stems from open communication channels. I always try and be available to not only my direct reports, but everyone in the office. Everyone has my cell phone number and knows that my (figurative) door is always open.

Peter

Head of the Americas

What projects are you most excited about?

Internally, I'm excited about scaling our industry pod structure. We're honing in on a handful of exciting industries with a lot of opportunity and our teams are coalescing around what they can do to have maximum impact on success for these pods. Externally, I'm discovering new use cases from customers that we hadn't even thought of ourselves.
