IDEO China’s marketing team is in search of a strategic, creative, and editorially-savvy writer and content manager who will work closely with the local marketing team to help elevate IDEO’s brand by helping us capture, craft and tell the impactful stories of client leaders we work with, challenges we solve and people & unique culture that support it. You have a knack for big-picture thinking, are omnivorous in your interests, and adept at boiling down complex concepts into simple, human-centered, and impactful stories. You will work with us to create and edit content to help share IDEO’s stories with the world in a range of formats.
IDEO’s brand and business are both dynamic and experimental. We are looking for a savvy writer who can develop high-impact marketing content to push the boundaries of how we use content to support business growth.
This person is passionate about telling stories in a variety of formats, from written, to audio, to video; from blog posts, to editorial columns, to keynote speeches. This role would push your craft in a variety of ways, from broad narrative development, copy editing, crafting case studies, to ghostwriting senior thought leadership.
The ideal candidate is not only a self-starter but is very (very) comfortable with ambiguity, does not need to be micromanaged and loves to work collaboratively.
IDEO is a place unlike any other. It’s a place where you can solve diverse, complex challenges for our clients or the organization, alongside thoughtful, intelligent individuals who lead with curiosity, empathy, and optimism. Sure we work hard, but we also intentionally craft moments that allow our community to pause, create, and connect. We encourage our community to bring their whole selves to work, respect the need for work-life balance, and allow for autonomy in the design process and your career.
