Marketing Specialist/Technical Writer Metacloud
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Metacloud seeks an energetic IT marketing specialist with outstanding technical writing skills and a solid understanding of the marketing function as a whole.
In this role you will produce a variety of marketing deliverables, from technical documentation and white papers to speaker abstracts, case studies, and company newsletters. But your role will not be limited exclusively to writing. You will also create and maintain a local events calendar, manage company participation at local events, and handle logistics for both local and remote conferences. You will assist with producing in-house videos, you will help manage our social media engagement, and you will attend industry events on behalf of the company.
Preferably you will have a professional background in the IT industry. At the very least however, you will have solid understanding of the IT space in general and of cloud computing in particular. You will be familiar with current industry trends, recent technology innovations, and typical CIO challenges. You will be flexible enough to thrive in a dynamic startup environment where priorities often shift and people occasionally need to lend a hand on projects outside their job descriptions. Yet you will be focused enough that you?re consistently able to sustain progress on your core initiatives.
BA in Journalism, English, or related field...nice to have, but we'll focus on what you know right now, what you have accomplished, where you shine, and how your current and future goals mesh with ours.
First and foremost, you need to be able to write. We need an experienced writer who knows what it is like to work in a tech-centric organization experiencing a rapid rate of growth, an environment where marketing content is in high-demand, where the underlying technology is in constant and rapid evolution, where the documentation must be kept in sync with these changes, and where everyone rolls up their sleeves to get the job done.
You need to be the type of person who can track, manage, and keep 12 balls in the air and love it! This is a multifaceted role encompassing scheduling, event coordination, research, documentation, and social media management so we?ll ask for prior examples of your awesome organizational skills and multitasking prowess.
To successfully collaborate with our engineering leads and architects during the production of technical white papers we need someone whose brain comes ?pre-packed? with a solid understanding of IT infrastructure and a general understanding of cloud-computing concepts and solutions.
NOTE: For the majority of these project (i.e., white papers, case studies, and other highly-technical documentation) the core of the documentation will be authored by a solutions architect. The Marketing Specialist/Technical Writer will be responsible for managing the project, editing, and producing the final product.
You should be very comfortable with the standard Office suite of tools and especially with PowerPoint.
Prior experience working in a start-up operation is strongly desired but not required. Ultimately, we need people who know how to work independently and make things happen.
The ability to demonstrate a high degree of passion for your craft is a requirement. Our on-staff experts love what they do, are continuous learners, anxious to take on new challenges, and mindful of best practices to ensure optimal service.
You have to be able to ?play nice with others.? Metacloud seeks extraordinary minds, talent, and abilities, but not at the expense of our company culture and the tranquility of our employees and workplace.
Prior experience in the planning and production of videos for learning/marketing is a plus.
Prior experience with social media management (e.g., daily updates, etc.) is a plus.
What?s in it for you?:
While other organizations provide cloud products and services, our ?white glove? approach to building highly-scalable, fully supported and customized clouds for the enterprise is truly unique. In the infrastructure world, the cloud is simply inevitable so if you?re looking for a chance to join the cloud revolution, we want to hear from you. As an early stage startup, we can offer you a position where your professional growth is capped only by your effort, abilities, and our growth as an organization.
