Hive is an email marketing CRM used by brands to personalize and automate their campaigns. We pride ourselves on helping brands understand their email marketing, all while selling more and keeping their customers engaged.

We integrate with tech partners like Shopify and Eventbrite to let brands act on all their data, so they can easily segment their list in thousands of ways, and send more customized, timely email campaigns that land in inboxes.

We started our company inside a University of Waterloo computer lab in early 2014, graduated from Y Combinator that summer (S14 batch) and have been growing ever since. You’ll join our business development team in Kitchener (hive.co/careers).

We’re looking for a marketing and communications specialist who's intrigued by the intersection of ecommerce and marketing to help take our content strategy to the next level.

Job Responsibilities:

• You’ll contribute to Hive's content strategy, planning content topics and types that meet marketing goals
• You'll write copy for all of Hive’s marketing assets (blog posts, case studies, white papers, decks, email templates, landing pages, etc.)
• You’ll contribute to Hive’s social media strategy by producing content to drive engagement and traffic to the blog or website
• You’ll transform email marketing jargon into conversational, approachable language
• You’ll collaborate with the team to gain context and create content that resonates with our customers
• You'll own whatever you write, and you’ll get to see how it impacts customers and drives sales

Required Skills:

• You have an editor’s brain and are obsessed with clear, clever copy
• You’re into creative writing and thrive when adjusting the tone of voice, look and feel of different content
• You have experience producing web content–ebooks, blog posts, infographics, or social posts
• You’ve managed an editorial calendar
• You’re all about the details
• You might have an English or Communications degree, a Business degree (new grads welcome!), or something else, or maybe you dropped out, or didn't even go to school. Our team is made up of all kinds of smart people.
• Bonus: You have experience working in a B2B environment on a small team
• Bonus: You have experience writing long-form content (blog posts, case studies, white papers)

Bottom line... We're looking for curious, hardworking, down-to-earth people, who are passionate about helping brands build enduring relationships with their customers. You'll be well taken care of: meaningful equity, salary, and the benefits you need to be happy & healthy.
