Who we are looking for:

Wunderman Thompson is seeking a Content Strategist to work on the Atlanta office's largest client and help support the success of a new mobile application for the brand. As the digital ecosystem becomes more fragmented and consumer needs more personalized, Content Strategists define what should be created and when – based on business objectives, value to the consumer, cultural relevance, and competitive assessments – and determine where and in what form this content should live and how it will find an audience.  They develop content-driven ideas across a range of media including web, social, mobile, live events, branded entertainment, and media integrations.

What you’ll do: 

  • Support | Guide and develop enterprise content plans that build off a brand messaging strategy by partnering closely with a cross-functional team to ensure adherence to digital and SEO best practices.

  • Communicate | Provide strategic rationale for new content opportunities across all digital and social channels. Serve as an educator to train other disciplines in how to create channel-specific content. Partner with the analytics team to uncover content insights and optimizations. Collaborate with other departments as needed including communications strategy, brand planning, analytics, development teams from The Gorilla Group, and the Wunderman Thompson Apps team. 
  • Organize | Collect and publish content in real-time at small footprint collection efforts as needed. Devise creative solutions to editorial challenges. Support measurement and optimization plans. Ensure content and governance standards are met across channels.

Who you are:

  • Eager | Entrepreneurial attitude coupled with a strong business acumen. Ability and appetite to bring people together. Innate ability to marshal people and create gravity around ideas. 
  • Open and collaborative | Our team is close-knit and supportive, and we’re working with a lot of unknowns – you must be a champion of team environments that are comfortable and encouraging. 
  • Optimistic and resilient | Digs in and figures out how to work around problems. Yes and why not posture. Takes care of self and team. Maintains balance of stamina and positivity.
  • Ego-less | We all wear the hats that need wearing- it’s a mentality that makes the team successful.

 What you’ll need:

  • 3+ years of experience in advertising, marketing or journalism.
  • Previous experience supporting or leading content strategy for a mobile application preferred.
  • Content marketing/SEO familiarity.
  • Research, including outside the box thinking on how to locate and verify information.
