  • Writing and editing other copy, often as a ghost-writer, as assigned by leaders on a case-by-case basis. 
  • Assisting in the production of internal educational videos, including, potentially, pre-interviewing guests and scripting content. 
  • Supporting the ongoing efforts of our teams and leaders, as well as our Women In Technology team member resource group.

WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU

Required:

  • Bachelors degree with a technology or communications focus
  • Experience in writing and editing compelling content, and will be able to share writing samples upon request.

  • Detail-oriented, with the ability to manage projects from inception through execution.
  • Ability to both work independently and collaboratively, with a positive attitude, a 'yes' mentality, and the ability to connect and build relationships quickly.
