Job Description

  • Employee Type: Full-Time
  • Location: Denver, CO
  • Job Type: Legal
  • Experience: Not Specified
  • Date Posted: 8/23/2019

Are you a versatile writer with journalist’s knack for storytelling and a content marketer’s passion for writing concise, compelling content that converts?

HomeAdvisor, the largest online marketplace connecting homeowners with local home improvement and repair professionals, is looking for a skilled content writer to help tell our story and inform and engage our audience through:

  • Web pages
  • Print and digital magazines
  • Email newsletters
  • Social media
  • Reports and white papers
  • And more

As a content marketing writer, you’ll collaborate closely with the director of content development, content writers, graphic designers and other departments to create and refine content for both the HomeAdvisor and Angie’s List brands — developing assets to inform, attract, retain and convert an audience of homeowners and home service professionals in a fast-moving, deadline-driven environment.

You’ll bring a passion for creating valuable, relevant and consistent content, as well as an appreciation for the role of content in building brand recognition and driving profitable customer action. And, you’ll be as comfortable writing an entertaining listicle-style blog post as you are distilling information for landing pages and interviewing sources to spotlight the stories and successes of our customers and service professionals.

What you’ll do:

  • In alignment with business objectives, write content about a variety of topics for multiple platforms  
  • Collaborate closely with project stakeholders and team members to brainstorm and develop content ideas
  • Write original headlines and concise body copy to inform and engage both consumer and B2B audiences
  • Research stories and interview sources internally and externally
  • Edit and proofread owned and contributed content for accuracy, organization, grammar, mechanics, spelling and cohesion with brand voice
  • Manage time and tasks to meet multiple deadlines
  • Adhere to established style guides and editorial guidelines
  • Follow trends in the home industry and help communicate them in engaging ways

What you’ll bring to the table:

  • 2-5 years’ professional writing experience
  • A working knowledge of content marketing principles, practices and techniques
  • A demonstrated ability to write concise and compelling content for diverse audiences and diverse platforms
  • Excellent interviewing, fact-checking and research skills
  • An eagle eye for grammatical and spelling errors
  • Critical thinking, audience empathy and a keen talent for finding and keeping the focus in every story
  • Ability to multitask, prioritize, and manage time efficiently in a fast-paced environment
  • Ability to write in a variety of voices and tones — and to bring a fresh perspective to recurring assignments and topics
  • Familiarity with AP style and SEO practices
  • Self-motivated and able to work both independently and as an active member of the team
  • Proven follow-through and the ability to communicate with professionalism at all levels inside and outside of the organization
  • A high standard and the ability to accept feedback and criticism without ego
  • A collaborative mindset and a desire to learn and grow
  • Bachelor’s degree in journalism, English or related field preferred
  • Previous experience working with an editor in a corporate or agency environment preferred
