Do you love ideating and creating valuable content? Are you a relentless executor? Want to make a social impact while working in tech? Then this position is for you.

Instrumentl is looking for an intellectually curious Content Marketer to help scale and optimize multiple initiatives across our go-to-market teams.

In your first year, you will help expand our company’s reach through scaling our content marketing and broader SEO efforts.

About us:

Instrumentl is a profitable, YC-backed startup that helps over 2,000 nonprofits from local homeless shelters to larger organizations like universities and hospitals be more effective and efficient with institutional fundraising.

Today, we do this by bringing discovery, tracking and grant management to one place, saving nonprofits time and helping them win more grants. We’re doubling year-over-year and have strong product market fit (NPS is 60+).

What you’ll get to do:

In your first year as a Content Marketer, your work will include but not be limited to:

  • Identifying and acting on key trends emerging for our overall domain as well as growing blog
  • Implementing CRO best practices to grow leads generated from content marketing efforts
  • Creating creative backlink building campaigns while also scaling broader backlink building initiatives
  • Assisting in maintaining and growing our content marketing calendar, as well as scaling company-wide SEO efforts
  • Drafting copy for a variety of efforts from landing pages to email campaigns
  • Testing hypotheses and collaborating with our Head of Growth on validating new opportunities

This is a unique role where you’ll get experience spearheading the growth of content marketing efforts that are seeing a doubling of outcomes quarter-over-quarter, while also learning foundational growth sales & marketing skills.

The right candidate will be able to contribute across many areas in the company, think like an owner and help define what their role is / where it will head over time. You’ll report directly to the Head of Growth.

We are fully distributed (read: no office!). For this position, we are looking for someone based in the continental US, but open as well to those flexible to Central Time standard working hours.

What we’re looking for:

  • 3+ years of work experience: preferably at a SaaS company doing Growth, SEO, Digital Marketing or Content Marketing related work. Alternatively, experience from investment banking or management consulting.

  • Past freelancer management experience: you’re comfortable working with, hiring and recruiting freelance writers to contribute to content marketing efforts
  • Strong business acumen: you can answer unstructured business questions and interpret qualitative and quantitative data to drive projects to conclusion.
  • Obsession with execution excellence: you do things right the first time, meet deadlines, stay organized and are known for being incredibly dependable. It pains you to miss a goal or deadline.
  • Excellent analytical skills: you can spot a trend quickly and are highly comfortable conducting analysis with tools like Google Analytics, Google Data Studio, Heap and Excel. You know what an index match is and how to quickly manipulate data.
  • Resourcefulness: you are comfortable figuring things out on your own once given general direction and parameters for guidance.
  • Tech savviness: you should feel highly comfortable with tools like G Suite, Zoom, Slack, and Canva. You love shortcuts and can name your favorites off the top of your head.
  • Communication: you pride yourself on your ability to communicate complex topics easily over video and in writing.
  • Friendly: you are warm and friendly, easy to work with and genuinely enjoy communicating with others.
  • Bonus: experience working in early-stage startups and being comfortable (even thriving) with ambiguity.
  • Bonus: experience with grants or in the nonprofit world.
