Can you take a vision and turn it into content that is aligned with specific metrics and goals? We’re looking for a Content Designer to join us at Thinkific.

As a Content Designer at Thinkific, your main arena will be creating high-converting, sales-driven copy for various campaigns, from email sequences to in-product copy. We’re not just looking for a wordsmith; we are in search of someone who is perpetually eager to test, learn, optimize, and insert their knowledge into every piece of copy they see. Reporting to the Director, Content you will collaborate cross-departmentally to create high-converting copy.

Your goal will be to create high-converting, sales-driven copy for various campaigns. Here’s how you’ll accomplish this:

  • Collaborate with Marketing, Growth, and Product teams to develop persuasive, high-converting copy for various campaigns and emails
  • Use performance metrics to gauge the effectiveness of your copy
  • Participate in team brainstorming sessions to ensure a unified and effective messaging strategy
  • Work closely with the Creative, Content, and Product teams to complement visuals with compelling copy
  • Support the development of copy, voice, and tone guidelines for different teams and lifecycle stages
  • Continuously stay up-to-date on industry best practices

The person we have in mind likely:

  • Has 2-3 years of experience in direct response, e-commerce or another fast response industry, preferably in Software as a Service (SaaS)
  • Has a portfolio that showcases their skills in direct-response copywriting
  • Excels both individually and in a team setting. They have experience collaborating cross-functionally to achieve results
  • Has clear and effective communication that comes naturally
  • Is a strong copy editor and has a strong grasp of content strategy
  • Possesses A/B testing as a regular part of their toolkit
  • Has a strong understanding of content performance metrics and the tools used to track them
  • Has a passion for conversion copy, with a track record of proving their copy works
  • Loves to learn and grow. They’ve found (and keep looking for) ways to level up their skills in this field, whether that’s through formal education, gaining professional experience, or maybe even building their own business

These things would also be nice, but we think you could learn them on the job:

  • Has the ability to learn quickly and adapt to a changing environment
  • Possesses a strong knowledge of how copy translates from a page into a product experience
