Blog Managing Editor
Location
Berlin, Germany

About the opportunity

We are looking for a blog managing editor who can write, edit and curate a consistent stream of compelling content across one of Contentful’s most visible channels -— our blog. In true editor fashion, you will search out stories from internal subject matter experts and external thought leaders to position the Contentful blog as the go-to source for digital builders.

As a key member of the content marketing team, the blog manager ensures that all published content meets editorial standards as well as aligns with SEO best practices so that our articles are both found and read.  

The right individual for this role will have a passion for understanding technical concepts, drawing stories out of developers and creatives alike, and writing in a way that makes all content feel like it comes from the same brand

What to expect?

  • Ghost-write or edit copy on behalf of subject matter experts, helping great developers, content strategists, and product managers sound like great writers
  • Interview and build relationships with users, engineers and product managers to identify key stories that solve customer pain points and provide strategies they didn’t even know they needed
  • Comprehend technical jargon and translate it into conversational English
  • Become an expert in the latest industry research, data and trends to add credibility and context to everything we publish
  • Acquire a deep understanding of our market position, features and messaging
  • Align blog strategy to lead generation goals and campaigns to create a productive top-of-funnel acquisition channel
  • Apply SEO copywriting best practices to capture readers through search and offer clear pathways to our website and product
  • Collaborate with colleagues from marketing, product management, customer success and solution architects
  • Work with a blog assistant to optimize and publish articles

What you need to be successful?

  • You write clear and technically correct English, and possess a strong command of grammar, spelling, tone and style
  • 3-6 years of experience in technical writing, writing for a developer audience, or tech-driven marketing copywriting, and a strong record in creating copy that stands out from the crowd
  • Excel at interpersonal communication, project management and collaboration
  • A personal sense of drive and ambition for results
  • It's a bonus if you also happen to publish regularly on your own blog or participate in developer communities such as GitHub and StackOverflow, or participate in subject specific conversations on Twitter

What's in it for you?

  • Join an ambitious tech company reshaping the way people build digital products. 
  • We set you up for success, equipping you with the latest and greatest hardware
  • Enjoy a full range of events, including workshops, Contentful-hosted meetups, guest speakers and team activities. Meet your team members from across the globe at our annual offsite. 
  • Get fit! We offer a variety of health and fitness classes and a discount on Urban Sports Club.
  • We value our employees health and safety. Our teams are working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. 
  • Use your personal education budget to improve your skills and grow in your career. Join a free German class or one of our many internal learning initiatives!
  • Plus, Contentful socks! Oh yeah!
