The Hired Guns are seeking a visionary, data-driven Content Director for an environmental advocacy group dedicated to solving one of the world’s most intractable environmental crises. In this role, you’ll work with a team of dedicated writers and developers, helping to launch a new platform. So if you’re looking to put real purpose behind your words and help save our planet, this may just be the gig for you. (The first three months in this role will be freelance, then converting to fulltime staff.)
The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
This mission-driven organization is a place where you’ll get to drive world-changing work alongside passionate people who share your priorities at a crucial moment in human history. Beyond working with a driven team of writers, you’ll strategize cross-functionally with our developers to build a platform that will enable a global mobilization to remedy a major threat to our biosphere.
Starting in New York City (though there are expansion plans in place), you’ll reach out to cultural institutions to partner with the organization on their mission to begin local efforts that will later go global. There’s already a robust group of media and etail partners in place to help spread and monetize the message. Together you’ll figure out how to engage volunteers in real-time communal, mission-based activities — with clear achievement paths and recognition moments along the way.
Ultimately, you will help architect a mobile-first ecosystem that’s been designed and game-ified to mobilize, activate and educate volunteers around the world.
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
Your fondest fantasy is a job that lets you combine your love of writing and editing with your passion for the environment. Climate change, pollution, and conservation aren’t abstract ideas to you, nor are they “fake news;” you know that if we want a planet fit for future generations, the time to act is now.
Beyond your ideology, you have clips that show you can write about conservation in a compelling yet accessible manner. You’ve supervised teams of writers and love nothing more than inspiring such teams to do meaningful, life-changing work. Translating complicated science-speak into layperson language is second nature. You have a successful audience-development track record, and you know how to harness the power of analytics to help drive growth. You’ll get huge bonus points if you’ve helped develop games that both educate and entertain.
