Animalz is a content marketing agency that strives to create the best content on the web. We help companies grow by creating high quality, long-form pieces that their audience loves.
We’re a fully remote organization with team members scattered around the world. We have an eclectic team of marketers, scientists, journalists, operations folks, and more.
About this role:
Our Technical Content Marketing Managers (or technical CMs, as you’ll probably hear them called) are the backbone of the work we do for a specific group of Animalz customers. While working closely with a Content Strategist and Editor, technical CMs write approximately two pieces per week, proactively manage their customer relationships, and work to level up their knowledge of technical subject matter and customer products.
This role blends technical knowledge and experience with best-in-class writing for customers. Successful candidates should be able to learn new topics quickly and be comfortable asking questions to better their understanding of technical subject matter, including software development, programming languages, user experience (UX), and open source software (OSS).
Ideal Content Marketing Managers have experience writing highly technical long-form (~1,500 word) content and managing customer accounts. The length and depth of your experience can vary, and our team works closely with technical CMs to grow their skills in these areas - plus content strategy - long-term.
We’re looking for folks with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences for this role. We have former freelancers, journalists, strategists, marketing generalists, and more at Animalz.
