Job Description

What we are looking for: 

Cloud Academy is on a mission. A mission to help people and companies develop the tech skills they need to build the future.

To achieve this mission, we need to create content that raises awareness, generates interest, and inspires action. That’s where you come in. 

We need a thoughtful, creative content marketer who thinks differently. Someone who can work with what we’ve built so far but also work with us to elevate it to the next level. Someone who is a strong writer who is familiar with B2B technologies but also has a penchant for storytelling.

This will be a chance to really broaden your experience and portfolio while impacting the continual growth of the company!


What you’ll need to succeed:

Understand Cloud Academy’s business, our customers, their challenges and opportunities. Understand this really, really well. Talk with the sales team, success team, product team, and others who are regularly in touch with our customers. Then let’s strategize about our brand and how it can evolve, and how we can tell our story to stand out with and engage this technical audience.

-Strategize on new initiatives involving campaigns and engagement efforts
