Associate Writer/Content Strategist

Stamats Communications

What kind of marketing writer are you? Do you dig into a paragraph and rebuild it with your wrenches and your high-torque semicolons? Can you concept at the drop of a creative brief? Or do you eye the metrics coolly, chart your customer’s journey with care, and parse your content into strategic chunks accordingly?

If you said yes to any of those, we may have the job for you.

Stamats, a champion for higher education clients around the country, seeks an Associate Writer/Content Strategist to help shape messages and content across media and channels. This week will be web content, next week ads, and then an email campaign or a glossy brochure or social media campaign.

We’re looking for a strong writer with one to three years’ experience; a BA in English, journalism, or a related field; and an interest in growing and adapting your skills to new challenges. You’ll also need to have, find, or fake-until-it’s-real:

  • The chops to develop and defend—and then listen and modify—a point of view, working with designers, campaign strategists, market researchers, clients, and the whole team
  • Level-headedness in the midst of multiple deadlines
  • A suitcase (yes, there’s travel, and you get to keep your FF miles)
  • Interest in the way technology and content interact
  • A relentless focus on the audience
  • And, since we’re in Iowa, a little bit of nice never hurts

(A passion for the Oxford comma will be appreciated, but isn’t actually a job requirement.)

So, if you think this sounds like you, we’d love to hear why. Upload your resume to link below or mail to Human Resources, Stamats Communications, Inc., 615 5th St. SE, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, 52401. Phone calls are frowned upon, and will be followed by snide comments wondering what you were thinking. AA/EOE.
