    About the job

    Who we are
    We’re Upswing, an award winning SEO and Content Marketing agency that’s been a powerful voice in the Romanian market for 17 years. We serve a high and mighty portfolio of established brands, and we’re also an enthusiastic and ambitious bunch. Company culture and work-life balance are not meaningless phrases on our walls, but what we build every day with infinite care.
    We take chances and risks, we love to innovate and deliver results, but also truly meaningful experiences for our clients. We’re guided by 2 simple, yet powerful principles: People centricity and You can’t manage what you don’t measure (Peter Drucker).

    Content strategy approach
    Thus, our approach on content strategy is also based on these two concepts: aside from the solid tools you’ll use for data extraction and analysis, we never start crafting a strategy without thorough research on multiple levels, that expands over keywords and competitors and goes deeper, to the core of the client business goals and target audience needs. 

    You’ll be an essential part of the content department and will be coordinated by the Head of Content. You are also a key member of a permanent cross-functional team consisting of customer success and SEO specialists. You work closely with all the teams: strategy implementers, content managers, video SEO specialists. 
    But, most of all, you will be an autonomous person, in charge of your work and your growth, who knows when to take decisions and action and when to ask for support. 

    Key responsibilities

    • You establish strategic directions for our client campaigns while ensuring the client brand, focus and business goals, as well as content marketing personas are at the heart of decision-making.
    • You research the clients’ context and collect insights to ensure you thoroughly understand their point A and make informed choices in the strategies you build for them.
    • Use all that data, doubled by psychology to shape the clients’ narrative and set the basis for content experiences tailored to their needs.
    • Set short-term and long-term objectives and KPI’s, measure and monitor the campaigns, proactively propose optimisation solutions. 
    • Competitor analysis: conduct thorough analysis of competitors’ content strategies, identifying strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for differentiation.
    • Propose topics (standalone or grouped in content matrices as pillars and clusters); ensure they’re clear, compelling, in line with objectives and adhere to a consistent philosophy throughout the campaign.
    • Map the proposed content according to seasonality, funnel stage and buyer personas.
    • Outline the editorial calendar.
    • Provide a comprehensive guide and direction for the content writers.
    • Monitor, measure, adjust and proactively propose strategic directions shifts.
    • Perform content audits and track content health. Own the content performance process throughout the campaign.
    • Lead the brainstorming sessions across the team.
    • Collaborate cross-functionally to set and deliver objectives within deadline.
    • Participate in pitches and client meetings whenever needed to coherently present and adjust your strategy alongside the client team members.
    • Stay updated with industry trends: continuously monitor industry trends and best practices in content marketing to ensure strategies remain relevant and effective.
