What We Need

Codeword is looking for a creative senior strategist to join our growing team of digital, content and social media strategists. You don’t have to have agency experience, but you are open and driven, have a point of view on anything from Selling Sunset to what tech enthusiasts care about, and speak broadly about a number of culture related topics without being an expert on any of them. From long-term planning to daily engagement, you will also lead the content and internal comms strategy for one of the world’s largest tech brands.


Some detail below on what we're looking for, but open to a variety of skills and backgrounds. We love folks that can add to our diverse strategy team, so ex consultants, financial analysts, MBAs, art history majors… all welcome.

  • Managing junior staff and helping to develop strategic skill sets (presentation skills, framework development, narrative creation)
  • Providing guidance and ensuring adherence to best practices across multiple digital platforms
  • Providing proactive creative inspiration and curation of relevant industry news, case studies and best practices to team members and clients

What you've been able to accomplish

  • 6+ years of relevant experience developing content, comms, social media and/or audience development strategies in an agency or media publisher setting
  • Demonstrated ability to distill marketing goals and audience insights into executable strategy
