Let’s start this job description with a question…

What Does a Digital Content Specialist Do?

“It takes writing, editing and storytelling skills—and an ability to embrace change—to get ahead in this emerging role” – Source: MediaBistro.com

With that out of the way…

We are looking for a full-time Digital Content Specialist who can help us create excellent content.

Being a location-independent full-time position is one of the many benefits – you’ll be free to work anywhere in the world that serves your creativity best, be it the beaches in Thailand or the snowy Swiss Alps.

When we discussed this role with the team, we came to the conclusion that this role is basically a mix between a content marketing and a copywriting role.

For the copywriting part of the job, we are looking for compelling content to describe the icon sets and other design products that we sell on our website and other marketplaces.

For the content marketing side of things, we would like to reach potential customers by creating amazing content that will hopefully turn them into first-time buyers and, even better, life-long fans.

A few sample tasks for a Digital Content Specialist at Flat-icons.com to give you an idea of what’s required:

  • Creating a content calendar for the blog on Flat-icons.com. This shouldn’t be your regular random ‘corporate blog topics’, but each article should have a clear goal and requires research
  • Taking care of a round up post from A to Z (example). This means brainstorming a topic, deciding on the experts, contacting & interviewing them, writing of the actual article and at last, promoting it
  • Writing a compelling description for a new bundle deal we’re launching
  • Planning a content strategy for social media and executing it
  • Ditto, but then for our email list

Benefits

  • The position is fulltime (40 hours p/w) but we’re flexible with working times. Not a morning person? You can start later. Early riser? No problem, you’ll be done earlier in the day ?
  • Lots of opportunities to learn different skills. If you’re proactive and want to learn something, you’ll get access to great course material and you can tap into the knowledge of the other team members
  • Work with a team of easy-going and friendly people who are always happy to help you. No corporate culture (if you didn’t already get that from this job description…)!
  • Competitive salary and holidays
  • Work from home (or from a co-work space or café, if that’s your thing)

Apply if this sounds like you

  • A knack for design
  • High level of English (especially written)
  • Well-organized
  • Proactive and decisive attitude
  • Experience with WordPress is a pre
