Who we are looking for: 

Wunderman Thompson seeks an experienced B2B Tech Content Marketing Writer (contractor) to craft assignment-specific, mostly long-form copy for e-books, infographics, interactive tools, whitepapers, and other assets that describe the features and benefits of various Microsoft products to a business and technical audience. Strong familiarity with Microsoft 365 for Enterprise, Azure products and services, Dynamics 365 (especially the Power Platform), or other Microsoft B2B marketing is preferred. A technical writing/editing, software development, or IT background can be helpful, but is not required.

We are looking for writers who can write for each business/technical audience specified for each project in a human, original way that goes beyond typical, cookie-cutter B2B writing. We need extremely proactive problem-solvers who never flag an issue without proposing a solution (or three). 

You will work closely with the director of copy and content and design team to adhere to tone and style expectations and meet tight deadlines. Onsite not required. 

What you’ll do: 

  • Craft | Write polished, engaging copy for client projects in line with creative brief, project specs, and client/branding requirements.

  • Go above and beyond | Proactively resolve internal and client feedback. Quickly revise/rewrite copy in line with team and client feedback. 
  • Work with a team | Coordinate with design and UX teams to accommodate and/or optimize copy for accessibility. 
  • Build | Represent Wunderman Thompson values to clients and help maintain beneficial long-term client relationships. 

Who you are:

  • A Wordsmith | who is attentive to communication objectives and outcomes (in a technical industry). You’re comfortable working across the marketing mix in a structured corporate environment, with the ability to work in constant change.
  • Inquisitive | You have an ability to conduct interviews, understand complex content, unpack technical jargon so you can fully understand what your client seeks and how you can best deliver on their needs. 
  • A Team Player | You’re highly focused and attentive to detail/precision yet enjoy being part of a supportive team. You can collaborate effectively with Design Groups to ensure the visual as well as the written product is extraordinary. 
  • Autonomous and Proactive | You can own & drive projects, creating solutions to inevitable challenges as they arise. You are able to process feedback, do rewrites & provide clear input to the designers.

What you’ll need: 

  • Experience writing B2B Tech Content in a Marketing Space.
  • A combination of marketing writing skills and the ability to understand and translate complex technical information for a business audience.
  • A strong understanding of the technology issues facing Microsoft enterprise customers and related concepts:  i.e. cloud migration/legacy on-premises infrastructure, hybrid cloud, AI and machine learning, cybersecurity (especially Zero Trust), process automation, and managing data in the cloud.
  • Experience working with Fortune 500 technology clients in marketing and/or corporate communications, creating online marketing content, and branding is preferred. 
  • Experience writing about Azure products and services, Dynamics 365, Power Platform, Microsoft 365 (especially Teams), or other Microsoft enterprise solutions is a huge plus.
