Job Description.

DIRECTOR, CONTENT STRATEGY. 

 

About Content Strategy

We believe in the power of content to build trust, credibility and high-value relationships with users. To get to this meaningful content, it is the role of Content Strategy to understand each point along the digital journey from the outward facing user experience to a brand’s internal business processes and operations. Content Strategists unpack user needs, distill insights from data, drive technology decisions, help architect the experience to ensure we can deliver the brand story and provide structure. Whether crafting the strategy for a content marketing program across a broad ecosystem or driving value and revenue through efficiency creation in governance and workflow implementation, Huge recognizes that in today’s landscape, content is more than just creating words on a screen. The way we strategically approach content enables brands to drive better outcomes and more effectively build long-term brand relationships. 

 

Job Description.

Huge is looking for a Director of Content Strategy to join the Content Strategy team that would report into our Washington DC or Atlanta office. Operating as both leaders and contributors, Content Strategy Directors will be expected to have expertise in both editorial strategy and technical information strategy. We are looking for candidates with a strong background in information architecture, content modeling, taxonomy and metadata strategy, and replatforming migration strategy. You will collaborate with technologists and product managers on Huge and client teams to recommend appropriate content systems such as DAMs, recommendation engines, or content management platforms for projects.You will make technical content recommendations to enable personalization, improve recommended content, and optimize internal search.

 

This is not a copy writing or content management role. This role requires client partnership and the ability to uncover opportunities for organic growth in our accounts. You will collaboratively define strategic visions for businesses and brands, including the role of content in that vision. Additionally, you will work with other leaders in the Content Strategy craft to chart the course for the discipline to meet the evolving needs of the market with measurable content outcomes and meaningful experiences at the core of what we drive toward.

 

Content Strategy Directors at Huge have a deeply ingrained understanding of the way content lives in digital media and makes sure our work is not just beautiful but incredibly engaging. They must balance and solve user, business, and technical content needs while still delivering cohesive, elegant work. There can be a lot of cooks in the kitchen in this process—they help make the final product seem like a singular vision. We need someone who’s ready to move seamlessly between the strategic and the tactical, with a focus on the long game of how content will function. Our Content Strategy Directors are people who can wear a wide range of different hats: a decisive product owner, a confident manager, a helpful mentor, a team player, and a skilled client partner all in one. They are just as comfortable directing a team as they are rolling up their sleeves and producing detailed deliverables. They work closely with all other disciplines, from designers to engagement, while being sensitive to both the brand and the client’s capabilities. In addition, they might serve as a mentor to a small group of content strategists who may or may not be assigned to their projects.

 

What we’d like to see.

  • 8+ years’ working experience leading content strategy development, preferably in an agency or consulting environment
  • Experience working on large-scale redesigns, e-commerce initiatives, and replatforming migrations.
  • Experience advocating for content strategy best practices, principles, and methodology. Content Strategy Directors can clearly and confidently express our decisions and rationales to both internal teams and clients.
  • Expert understanding of content delivery, management, and retrieval systems.
  • Awareness of emerging content strategy trends, tools, and technology. We want someone who is committed to looking beyond the status quo and is excited by innovation.
  • Elegant use of both qualitative and quantitative data to inform content priorities—in the end, the work should feel seamless.
  • A love of massive spreadsheets and copy decks. Ten tabs? Fifteen columns? Eighty pages? No problem.
  • Proven ability to dig into the details and emerge with strong strategic insights and a good story.
  • Applicants will need to be prepared to share sample work demonstrating how they've approached and completed stakeholder interviews, persona development, site audits, and content strategy.

Voluntary Self-Identification

For government reporting purposes, we ask candidates to respond to the below self-identification survey. Completion of the form is entirely voluntary. Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

As set forth in this company’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
