Technical Content Marketer in Remote

5 days ago
PostHog
At PostHog, we are looking for a Technical Content Marketer to join our Marketing team.

We’re a small (but growing) team building an open source platform that empowers customers to create successful products.

Until now, tools for building products have been fragmented. Product analytics, heat maps, session recording and A/B testing all provide immense value, but existing tools weren’t natively built to work together.

PostHog is different by offering these tools (and more) in a single platform that you can host yourself.

We started PostHog as part of Y Combinator's W20 cohort and had the most successful B2B software launch on HackerNews since 2012 - with a product that was just 4 weeks old.

We recently raised our Series B and are proudly backed by some of the world's top investors and believe in product-led growth, where we build something awesome and let our product bring the users, rather than an outbound sales team and regular cold calls.

What does this mean for you? We have a lot of capital, but we're a lean, strong team - so you've got the opportunity to have a huge impact!

What you'll be be doing:

  • Creating top-of-funnel product-focused content marketing such as blog posts, infographics, eBooks, web pages, white papers, and reports that attract new developers to PostHog.
  • Working with our marketing, product and engineering teams and community to translate messaging into innovative and timely content ideas and manage content production from start to finish.
  • Growing and maintaining our content schedule around user personas and segments.
  • Working with our marketing team to analyze how your content performs and decide how to adjust our content strategy accordingly.

Why this role is exciting:

  • We have loads of awesome stuff to write content about.
  • You'll have tons of autonomy to decide what to write about, but also the support of our Marketing team and external agency to give you insights.
  • We have a super engaged developer community that you'll be creating content for.
  • We're only just getting started - you will be one of the first people to join our Marketing team, so you'll really get to shape strategy.

Requirements

Must have

  • Experience working as a technical content marketer creating top-of-funnel content for developers.
  • Excellent writing, researching and communication skills.
  • Experience coming up with innovative and timely content ideas and producing well-written content to a content schedule.
  • A detail-orientated and organized approach to work with a desire to move quickly and constantly improve yourself and your team.
  • Experience doing software development - does not need to have been in a formal role though.

Nice-to-have

  • Experience creating content for an open source product.
