Senior Content Strategist
August 16, 2021
SEEKING: A Senior Content Strategist who is equal parts storyteller and cultural arbitrator; generalist and specialist; traditionalist and technologist. You know how to lay out a story – from the cover to the reoccurring editorial features. But at the same time, you know what clever pun fits the moment, what headline will grab attention, and what GIF or video consumers will find interesting and shareable. You are a hacker of sorts, quickly unpacking and expanding a story when its catching fire and dangling relevant content stacks in front of audiences to drive brand chemistry across mobile, web, media, social, audio, voice/gesture, experiential and even digital products.
Moxie’s Content Strategy team is responsible for driving businesses forward with unexpected formats, purposeful data integrations, and serialized programming without losing the foundation that there is nothing better than a well-told story, from a brand or otherwise. You will work on a multi-agency team under the Publicis umbrella that creates award-winning work. You’ll be able to set social, digital, traditional, in-store and CRM content strategies in motion while partnering with a talented and diverse team to deliver and execute omnichannel marketing plans. Not to mention you’ll work on a variety of brands such as Starbucks, Audi and Oxo. We need a partner who will lead the charge in making these brands relevant to the audience they’re trying to reach and deliver an inspiring and consistent brand experience.
