As a core member of Educative’s content marketing team, you will hone your inbound marketing and content strategy skills, all while building a diverse portfolio of well-researched, highly technical writing.

Above all, you will thrive in this role if you are a passionate writer with a deep curiosity for technology and a desire to develop as a technical writer, content marketer, and storyteller.

  • Manage content initiatives from inception to execution—then monitor outcomes and iterate to improve
  • Contribute to and help maintain Educative’s content and editorial calendars
  • Promote diversity, inclusivity, and equity in the software engineering community through thoughtful, accessible, empathetic content

Qualifications

  • Exceptional long-form writing and research skills (and samples to prove it)
  • Interested in the latest trends and developments in technology and software development
  • Experience and interest in multimedia storytelling (e.g. video, podcast)
  • Ability to communicate complex, technical ideas in accessible, digestible ways
