Our financial services client is looking for a UX Content Strategist with 3-5 years of experience to join their team for 40 hours per week on an 18-month assignment.

UX Content Strategist Responsibilities:
• Deliver innovative yet pragmatic content design and planning, based on business requirements, research, and audience insights.
• Work with teams of industry experts and creative talent across the agency, including marketing leaders, account managers, designers, copywriters, and developers. (This role is most involved at the outset of a project but consults throughout, guiding strategy and validating the execution of the plan to optimize existing or new content.)
• Bring content strategy expertise to large and small projects, such as website redesigns, microsites, email campaigns, financial literacy campaigns, social media, and more. We focus on digital experiences, but we also create videos, print advertising, collateral, and content optimization plans.
• Apply your passion for new ideas and strategies to achieving our clients’ goals and delivering successful outcomes.
• Consult on process and methodology, bringing smart and quick strategic solutions to planning discussions with account and project management team members.
• Perform product and user research when appropriate, and bring those insights to creative partners in ways that help them engage with and deeply understand what we’ve learned.
• Champion content strategy best practices and highlight the value of the discipline.

UX Content Strategist Qualifications:
• Work samples that show evidence of strategic thinking.
• 4+ years of content strategy experience (interactive copywriting experience a plus).
• Ability to work in an environment/on projects that have a high level of ambiguity, and willingness to embrace creative constraints and help find solutions.
• Experience collaborating with internal partners and/or third-party vendors to gather data and ensure the feasibility of our work.
• Proven ability to work across disciplines and present effectively to clients. Focus on storytelling and collaborating in real time.
• Financial institution expertise (or subject matter expertise in similar verticals/highly regulated industries) preferred.
• Passion for sharing subject matter expertise, knowledge, and best practices across teams and channels.
• Experience working within a digital framework: discovery, define, concept, design, and development. Strongly prefer experience with Design Thinking, Agile, and/or Lean UX.
• Understanding taxonomy and SEO, and how to optimize web pages for increasing ranking.
• Experience working within the constraints of content management systems (CMS), particularly Drupal.
• Background or expertise in communications or UX field.
