Senior Writer

stamats Stamats

Stamats seeks a senior writer to work primarily with higher ed clients.

Our writers work in all areas of an institution’s externally focused communications, but you would spend most of your time on:

  • Content marketing to recruit adult students
  • Flagship publications (viewbook, travel piece, etc.)
  • Email and other direct pieces
  • Web content
  • Ad copy

Day-to-day, you would work with a team of designers, content strategists, consultants, sales people, and project managers. Each with their own strengths; all working together to help our clients succeed.

Where are your strengths? Do you have a passion for precise word choices? A feel for the flow of a story? A drive to deliver evocative messages with emotional staying power? Or a journalist’s ear for the story within an expert’s monologue?

More specifically, we’re looking for five or more years’ experience with:

  • Content marketing
  • Writing marketing copy for universities or colleges
  • Interviewing subjects for stories with a point
  • Creative concepting for brands or campaigns

All four would be phenomenal—how about two or three?

We are problem-solvers who create beautiful and useful media. We invent and brainstorm and think it through. We keep learning.

You might find these things very handy:

  • An eye for the telling detail
  • A passion for punctuation (Serial comma? Officially, yes, but we love a lively discussion.)
  • A suitcase—we visit our clients and we keep our receipts and our frequent flyer miles
