At Built In, the health, safety and well-being of our employees and of our communities is a top priority. Due to the effects of COVID-19, we have decided to manage our entire business remotely until further notice. HQ-based employees will temporarily work from home until it is safe to return to our office. As we continue to grow, we are excited to be hiring for all open roles and look forward to meeting with qualified candidates in a virtual setting. For anyone who joins our team (yay!), your onboarding experience will also be conducted virtually. Thank you for your interest in Built In and be safe!
Hello, we’re Built In
Built In unites companies and people around their shared passion for tech and the universal need for purpose. To help our partners attract qualified talent, we create content that tells their story in a way no job post ever could — and we put their jobs in front of people who were born to do them. Our audience of sought-after candidates uses Built In to find their professional purpose and connect meaningfully to the tech community, including by reading our content, networking at our events and applying to jobs at companies they believe in.
Headquartered in Chicago, we also serve Los Angeles, San Francisco, Colorado, Austin, New York, Boston and Seattle.
When you work for Built In, you have the opportunity to change lives by giving talented people access to purpose, not just a paycheck. And you’ll make an impact on some of the most exciting companies in tech, helping them hire their next wave of elite talent. Be part of Built In, and be a part of the future of tech.
We’re looking for a Content Strategist
As a Content Strategist, you’ll be the gatekeeper to our editorial calendars and help shape and iterate on strategy for branded content. Contributing across all product lines, you’ll steer our creative efforts in a direction that attracts and retains users, delights and delivers results to clients, and hits internal production goals.
Through research, performance tracking, competitive analysis, focus groups and conferences, you’ll also be Built In’s internal subject matter expert on the content topics and tech trends our readers actively consume.
You’ll be joining a team of creatives working together to develop cutting-edge storytelling in support of tech companies big and small. At the highest level, we showcase and celebrate innovative technology, products and thought leaders across the country — and share those stories with the talent a growing tech company needs to thrive.
We’re on the prowl for a tech-savvy, customer-obsessed and big-picture content strategist with a singular style and a never-ending hunger to do more. We’re growing — fast — and need your help to get us to the next level.
How you’ll contribute
What you need
What We Value
Lead with Solutions.
Question everything. But offer solutions as you do. Raise issues. But propose a few answers. For every hole you poke, offer a way to patch it up.
Be Unreasonably Passionate.
Our passion is borderline obsessive, and we’re ok with that. No one ever built anything great on a “meh.” We work with outsized passion to fulfill our mission.
Own the Result.
We have no time for blame or shame. When you stumble, own it, learn from it + get back to business.
You don’t have all the answers. Luckily, you don’t have to. Don’t worry about being right. Be humble instead.
Curiosity is a springboard to the future. It can transform the wisp of an idea into a full-blown breakthrough. We ask “what if.” We work with wonder. It’s how we innovate.
Do more than your job description. Take initiative. Take charge. No job is beneath you, and no job is too big. Be a leader and do more — do whatever it takes.
