Senior Content Strategist, Marketing

Palo Alto, CA
Marketing
Full-time
The traditional financial industry was not built to put the interests of clients first. At Wealthfront, we’re committed to building products and services that are designed to earn you more and make it easy to bank, invest, and plan for your future. And we don’t want to stop there – our vision is to optimize your money across spending, savings, and investments, putting it all to work effortlessly. Deposit your paycheck with Wealthfront and, with the click of a button, you can have us automate the rest. Our software can top off your emergency fund, pay all your bills, and even invest the rest to help meet your goals. We call this future Self-Driving Money™. 

But we recognize that what we’re building is not what the average consumer expects. We’re building a brand that stands for something radically different than what’s traditionally offered by banks. And we need a talented writer to help us articulate our mission and vision to the world. That’s a tall task, which is where you come in. You’re passionate about telling a unique story. You love using creative thinking to develop differentiated and resonante messaging. You love distilling layers of ideas into kernels of truth. You appreciate the nuances between different digital mediums and know how best to communicate ideas on each. If all this excites you, we want to hear from you! This role reports to the VP of Marketing and would be the first content strategist on the team.

    • Adapt key messages and optimize copy by marketing channels – web, email, ads, social media, video scripts, and more. 
    • Collaborate with consumer insights to gain a deep understanding of our audience; use that knowledge to help shape how we communicate to prospects and clients. 
    • Apply a creative and emotive lens to the copy that you touch – we want our marketing to feel differentiated and our communications with clients to feel authentic.
    • Translate complex ideas into clear, concise copy to make financial topics feel digestible. 
    • Collaborate with Product Content to maintain a cohesive and unified brand voice and tone, and customer experience across all touchpoints

    • Experience collaborating with marketing, design, and communications
