What will you be doing?

We create content that inspires people, influences them, and ultimately attracts them to our brand. As our content marketing specialist you’ll need to:

  • Work closely with teammates and project leaders to create content that fosters positive brand awareness and supports our business development goals
  • Optimize new and existing web copy for SEO purposes

You'll be part of our content creation team, consisting of three other content marketing specialists. This team is part of a fully-fledged marketing department consisting of nine other specialists, ranging from PR to community management, who all work in-house. Collectively, you’ll bring to life the inspiring stories and business cases of the customers that use our 3D printers and what they do with them. The team is looking for a passionate and enthusiastic mind to match theirs, with the ambition to learn a wide variety of marketing skills, while working with every discipline.

What have we worked on recently?

  • Explore. New pages filled with relevant content about where and how 3D printing is used

What will your day in the office look like?

You arrive at the office, grab some delicious coffee or tea and start checking your emails. There is a new 3D printing tutorial slated for release next week according to the marketing calendar, and the PR specialist needs some professional copywriting help to pitch new contest announcement to big international publishers. Over lunch in the canteen, you talk about a new business case you are working on.
