Job Description

Medium’s mission is to deepen understanding of the world and spread ideas that matter. Medium is building the best place for reading and writing on the internet—a place where today’s smartest writers, thinkers, experts, and storytellers can share big, interesting ideas; a place where ideas are judged on the value they provide to readers, not the fleeting attention they can attract for advertisers.

The ideal candidate is a natural storyteller and leader with 5-7 years of experience working at an agency or in-house brand team.

  • Work closely with marketing leaders to develop and craft narratives that deliver on strategy, goals, and KPIs.
  • Lead evolution and implementation of brand voice and tone and ensure both are consistently applied across all channels.
  • Partner with product team to define in-product UX messaging.
  • Participate and lead brainstorming sessions with Creative Studio.
  • Develop and maintain copy resource repository.
  • Utilize writing skills to craft brand stories that deliver on Medium’s mission.

  • Strong portfolio demonstrating ability to execute large 360 brand campaigns.

  • Just as comfortable working independently on smaller initiatives as you are at leading projects from concept through execution.
  • Ability to align strategy and goals with creative storytelling.
  • Experience A/B testing creative and using data to help inform creative decisions.
  • Detail-oriented with strong organization, presentation, and leadership qualities.
  • Always interested in learning and expanding skill set.
