At Textio we believe that great writing experience is fast, outcome-focused, and alive with your ideas. Going from start to finish on a document in three minutes. Knowing who will respond to anything you’ve written before you even press send. Writing software that puts your ideas at the center, with language that is certain to land the way you want.

Textio’s category-defining augmented writing platform is delighting customers and earning strong media coverage. We’ve built a world-class communications program that’s placing stories in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and plenty of other high-profile outlets. Textio wins dozens of awards and places on well-known lists every year, and now we’re looking for someone to help us take it to the next level!

Do you want an opportunity to build on a strong communications foundation and sculpt a PR strategy that excites the press and impresses our customers? This role has serious development potential. Working closely with our Senior Director of Communications & Data Insights, you will create strategic storytelling initiatives that drive our brand and category narrative using customer and industry data insights.

* You’ll feel comfortable diving into Textio’s rich data sets to craft narratives that are compelling to the media and to our community of customers, advocates, and influencers
* As part of the communications and data insights team, you will also work closely with the full team to generate fresh ideas and develop new narratives to bring to market.
* You’ll work cross-functionally with Sales, Marketing, and Customer Success teams to decide which narratives will empower those teams to be more successful

* You can build ambitious communications plans to reach business, human resources, and tech outlets
