  • Overview

    The goal of every Wunderman campaign is to inspire people to take action. We’re more than a good idea machine — we want to show clients that great strategies backed by data and executed correctly across channels have bottom-line impacts.

    To help us succeed, Wunderman is seeking a Senior Content Strategist to join our growing team. Senior Content Strategists help the client achieve campaign and brand goals by establishing the right content presence and tone.

    • What content does the client need to create?
    • Where does the content need to live? Which channels and platforms?
    • How do we define the audience?
    • What content experience will engage the audience?

    The Content Strategist’s job is to define answers to these questions for each client campaign, and back them up with data that supports success stories for lookalike audiences and brands, or through the use of best practices.

    Additionally, we want Wunderman Senior Content Strategists to bring an innovative quality to the role.

    • What are we missing?
    • What should we be thinking about?

    If a company comes to Wunderman looking for a content solution, the Senior Content Strategist should make sure that correct use of content in owned and earned channels is a part of our campaign strategy, whether it’s a start-from-scratch approach or a push to help them rank better from an SEO perspective.
