  • Animalz is a content marketing agency that strives to create the best content on the web. We help companies grow by producing high-quality, strategic content that their audience loves.

    Our focus is on written content that helps companies educate and inform their audiences (executives, managers, and other specialized professionals in their field) on strategies and tactics for being successful in their work. Product, design, marketing, sales, and engineering are the main topic areas we cover, mostly within the B2B SaaS/tech field.

    We are looking for an editor who specializes in online content and who can help our writers improve over time and across clients in structure, tone, style, and on-page SEO. As much teacher as teammate, this person will review every piece of content at least twice — from the outlining phase to the nearly final draft — and use each review as an opportunity to encourage the writer and drive their continued growth in the craft.

    "A real editor isn’t just someone you work with; they are your guide. They see your brain doing its thing and learn its weaknesses and abilities, and if they're really good, they figure out what you need to hear to compensate for the former and accentuate the latter.” - Ariel Levy

    An ideal B2B tech/SaaS content editor at Animalz:

    • has a proven track record of successful writing and editing for the web, particularly in B2B/tech/SaaS
    • can communicate why changes should be made, not simply fix errors or improve writing
    • is well-organized, independently motivated and loves coaching writers
    • understands the business side of writing & editing
    • is deeply passionate about good content and approaches editing with a creatively curious mindset
    • is fascinated by the role technology plays in our day-to-day lives and the ways it continues to shape our future

    Requirements:

    • Proven writing and editing ability
    • Mastery of on-page SEO and how to apply it to each piece of content to provide guidance for writers
    • Ability to understand content strategy and edit content to align with it
    • Desire to help writers improve their craft and elevate their content to the highest quality
    • Experience successfully working with writing/editing customers
    • Basic understanding of how content marketing, SEO, email marketing, and social media function, how they can work together to get results, and the different writing/stylistic requirements of each
    • Strong interest in the tech/SaaS field and a thorough knowledge of the top content and thought leadership in the field
    • Work in North America’s Eastern time zone to support our writers there and in Europe

    Responsibilities:

    • Edit ~15 B2B articles and outlines per week (~1,500 words each), ensuring they comply with the customer strategy and optimizing them for performance
    • Educate our writers around good content in both form/structure and technical aspects (like SEO)
    • Provide support and constructive feedback to writers to help them improve their craft

    About Animalz

    We’re a remote, eclectic team of current and former scientists, journalists, operations folks with a home base in NYC and team members scattered around the world.

    We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity in our company.

    About the position

    This is a full-time (40 hours per week) remote job. Although we applaud and encourage pursuing your passion projects, we want to make it clear that this is not a freelance/part-time position you can do in tandem with other major professional endeavors.

    • Work from anywhere you like (during EST business hours)

  • Follow up boss (US only)
    3 weeks ago

    Follow Up Boss is at a unique point in our growth stage - we’ve been able to build a robust and strong product and brand that our customers are drawn to and align with (not to mention a profitable, self funded company).  

    Our strongest performing lead generator has historically been referrals from happy customers; our customer support and success are second-to-none.  While there is both direct and indirect competition in our space, we feel like we’re well positioned as the real estate CRM leader and believe there is ample room for continued growth in the market.   

    We’ve gotten to this point largely without any real “Marketing Engine” and believe we need to now add this as a primary focus for the business.  We feel that in order to achieve the growth targets we’ve set for the company it is imperative we actively promote and create awareness of the Follow Up Boss product and brand to the right customers (i.e. agencies and teams needing a CRM solution).  

    Our focus has never been on outward promotion or brand positioning and we feel that needs to change and we need someone to own that process. 

    We’re looking for someone who can develop and execute a strategic marketing plan consisting of aggressive demand generation programs, strategic product marketing and content plans, digital campaigns, event/experience initiatives, and comprehensive sales and partner enablement initiatives designed to deliver on revenue and growth targets - while important, we’re not looking for someone to focus on drip campaigns, on-boarding experience or incremental growth ideas.  We need someone who understands and can focus on the big picture, increasing the top of the funnel; someone who can help us be noticed, be seen and be found.

     We don’t currently have a marketing team, so much of the work this role will entail is the practical day-to-day stuff.  We want someone who understands marketing analytics, can cut through the BS and help us focus on the right metrics and growth drivers.

    We’re looking for someone to completely own this side of the business and lead the strategy and execution - we’re looking for an “A Player”: someone who’s done this before in a similar stage company, in a similar industry, with a similar product offering and price point.   

    Who Is Follow Up Boss?

    • We’re a powerful, intuitive, sales-focused CRM for real estate teams (and we use our own product)

    • We’re a self funded, profitable company started back in April of 2011

    • We’re a remote company with a mostly US-based team

    • We don’t just claim to be customer-centric - we live it: https://www.facebook.com/followupboss/reviews

    • Best-in-class Benefits Package (Medical, Dental 100% premiums paid)

    • Home office upgrade stipend

    • Yearly money to spend on education and self-improvement

    • Fun perks like free coffee, birthday off and a monthly fitness stipend

    • Your responsibilities will include: 

    • Developing and executing a strategic marketing plan consisting of aggressive demand generation programs, strategic product marketing and content plans, digital campaigns, event/experience initiatives, and comprehensive sales and partner enablement initiatives designed to deliver on revenue and growth targets

    • Leading and driving investment in demand generation and ROI across all marketing channels

    • Growing and acquiring monthly free trials - successful past experience is a must!

    • Owning and leading the creation of marketing and communications strategies and tactics that build our brand visibility 

    • Taking risks - ideally, you are a big idea marketer who is capable of leading teams to develop new strategies and tactics to build our brand, drive traffic to the top of the funnel, resulting in high revenue growth targets

    • Ensuring marketing plans are developed in a highly collaborative manner with other key stakeholders

    • Translating the marketing plan into actionable quarterly targets and initiatives, keeping the team and budget on schedule

    • Continuous analysis of competitive environment and industry trends

    • Building marketing culture ruthlessly focused on customer experience and revenue, highly collaborative and cross-functional, and encourages transparent communication and constructive idea building and dialogue 

    Your qualifications:

    • Minimum experience of 5 years in B2B SaaS software marketing (experience in the real estate market a plus!)

    • Ability to grow and lead a small team but not just seeking a hands off management role

    • Proven track record of creating and driving a marketing strategy that delivers on brand/product promises, creates engaging customer experiences, enables the sales process, and drives revenue growth

    • Collaborative by nature with proven effectiveness working with key internal stakeholders to shape and execute vision and strategy; can influence without authority

    • Possess a test and learn mentality

    • Experience as a member of a leadership team 

    • Strong creative, strategic, analytical, organizational and personal skillset

    • Experience owning improvement on a top of the funnel marketing strategy

    • Strong oral and written communications skills
