About the client

Our client is a major international player in the semiconductor industry and its products and applications in our daily lives. They have multiple business units to help them grow their business at scale through APIs and/or hardware development kits as well as research, development, and synthesising future technologies.

Firehead are currently searching for a contract content strategist for their team. This role requires someone with strong technical capabilities, strategic thinking, and a sense of self-driven leadership.

You will work in the Technical Marketing and Documentation team, which is part of their wider Developer Program and responsible for the communication and dialogue with business partners and third-party developers. The team manages its own developer-focused support forums, YouTube and Twitter channels.

About the role

You will develop and maintain a content strategy based on the company’s business objectives and customer’s needs for their website and related social medias. You will combine technical writing and online marketing expertise with a solid technical background.

As part of a dynamic team, you will plan and coordinate digital marketing campaigns and content for their different website channels to promote their APIs, tools, and offerings.

You will often be the main point of contact for internal stakeholders, creators and external marketing agencies, while at the same time creating web content, and documentation and marketing assets for a technical audience.

You are a creative yet structured person, who is also curious about new technologies, business-to-business marketing, and the ever-changing environment of the tech industry.

It is important that you have a great technical interest and knowledge in technical areas such as IoT, semiconductors, AI, or similar. You also need to have a strong drive, and not to be afraid of seeking new knowledge yourself inside or outside the company.

Deadlines are often tight, and you must be able to work at a rapid pace, and at the same time be able to make the right priorities.

You should also have a clear user perspective, and always consider how the information is perceived outside-in.
