Content Marketing Intern Writer

Maestro is looking for a Content Marketing Writer to tackle our growing content needs for 20-40 hours/week for a paid, summer-long program. This internship program is primarily focused on writing blog posts for the Maestro team. Our needs are growing! We expect this internship to run from May through August 2020, but don’t worry—we can be flexible on the specifics.

 

Who we are

Maestro exists to help others perform beautifully. We believe that every problem can be impacted by design, technology, and people that care. That’s why we’ve packed these four walls with dreamers and doers ready to design meaningful experiences that help our partners, their people, and their brand perform beautifully. Our team works collaboratively to intentionally craft solutions for Branding & Marketing, Learning, Software, and Media.

 

Who you are

You love making connections, especially if it’s through words. Which is probably why when you saw “content marketing” and “writer” in the same job title, you thought, “that’s me!” Your conversational writing is on point, you’re up for staying current on things like best practices for SEO, and talking about content marketing geeks you out. You might be enrolled in or graduated from a program in English, Marketing, or Journalism or you might not—either way you enjoy challenging yourself to write for various communication channels. You’re certainly no stranger to blogs, whitepapers, email campaigns, and social media. You’re known for being organized and efficient with your time, and it makes you proud to think that your work will have a direct impact on the success of the marketing efforts.

 

What you’ll be doing on the Marketing Team

  • Work closely with our marketing director and content team
  • Write (a ton of) blogs to support our campaigns
  • Research and interview subject matter experts for content development
  • Contribute to ideation for new content based on research and learnings
  • Research, outline, and write a larger piece of content (whitepaper, eBook, guide, etc.)
  • Dedicate at least 20 hours to this internship per week

 

Talents we’re looking for

  • Dynamic writing skills, with an understanding that not all copy requires an academic writing style, but does benefit from being well-organized and easy to read
  • Ability to quickly learn written standards and apply those standards to writing
  • Amazing attention to detail and strong organizational skills
  • Ability to work in a collaborative team environment
  • Identifies as a self-motivated go-getter
  • Confidence to contribute without being asked and bring fresh ideas to the team
  • Bonus if you have prior experience in professional writing

 

The perks

  • Hourly compensation. We take your experience and talent level into great consideration
  • Work/life balance. Life happens, and here you have the time and freedom to deal with it
  • Endless snacks for creative thought. Maestro’s known for spoiling the team

 

We believe in an inclusive environment

Maestro is committed to creating an inclusive employee experience for all. Regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, ability, or if you’re parenting the next generation of innovators, we firmly believe that our work is at its best when everyone feels free to be their most authentic self.
