Want to Join BuzzStream? We’re Looking for a Head of Content Marketing




A lot of people ask me how we’ve been able to consistently deliver such high quality content across all of our content channels for such a long period of time. The majority of the credit for this belongs to Matt Gratt. Until this spring, virtually every piece of our content was created, edited or conceived by Matt. In that time, we’ve seen traffic to our website explode and subscribers to our twitter feed increase dramatically…and because content is our biggest driver of sign-ups and revenue, we’ve seen trials and revenue more than triple in the last two years.

Matt has now decided to move on to another great Austin company. It’s an exciting opportunity that makes a lot of sense for him. Nevertheless, I’ll miss working side-by-side with him. He’s had a big impact on our growth, our strategy and our culture, and it’s been a lot of fun working with him. I’m incredibly grateful for what he’s done and I know he’s going to kick some serious butt in his new role.

So what now for BuzzStream?

Well this is where you come in. 🙂  We need someone who is unfathomably awesome to step in and lead BuzzStream’s content efforts.

What will you be doing?

First and foremost, you’ll be creating, curating and sourcing amazing content that both makes our customers better at their jobs and helps BuzzStream achieve our business goals.

To do this, you’ll be responsible for:

  • Finding the themes and topics relevant to our target audiences, conducting the analysis required to determine what works for them and developing a content strategy to support this
  • Creating blog posts, eBooks, webinars, email newsletters and more.
  • Sourcing content from guest contributors and contractors and overseeing their work (i.e., editing, managing freelancers, etc.)
  • Building and managing a content calendar
  • Getting BuzzStream featured on major blogs in our market (through contributed articles, outreach, etc.)

You’ll also be BuzzStream’s primary evangelist and community manager.  You’ll be responsible for:

  • Managing and growing our social following by engaging with the community and sourcing/posting content that benefits them
  • Promoting our content through outreach, paid channels, syndication and other promotion mechanisms
  • Speaking at events on BuzzStream’s behalf
  • Planning and attending events, including tradeshows, meetups and more.

So those are the primary responsibilities, but we run lean here…you’ll have your hands in a lot of things and you’ll be able to impact the business in multiple ways. You’ll be reporting directly to me.

What are the job requirements?

  • You have strong writing skills and you have experience creating, curating and promoting content…the content you create tends to spread naturally and you know how to give it the promotional push it needs to make it go big.
  • You have the communication skills, personality and attitude to publicly represent BuzzStream, both in person and online.
  • You understand the digital marketing space (ideally including blogger and influencer outreach). Big plus if you have agency or SaaS experience. Also a plus if you have experience marketing to marketers.
  • You enjoy connecting people and building relationship, both in person and online.
  • Big plus if you’re a BuzzStream user
  • Strong preference for someone in Austin (or willing to relocate).

How do I apply?

Simple…just send an email to thenextmarketer@buzzstream.com.  In the email, include a copy of your resume, a paragraph explaining why you’d like the job and another paragraph explaining why you’re a good fit for it. If possible, include links to your content that best shows why you’re a fit for the job.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

    Thanks for the kind words Paul! I’ve really enjoyed working with everyone here and think we’ve accomplished some great things over the past few years.

    As a side note to readers, I would recommend this job to anyone – BuzzStream is a great company with great people, a unique, fun culture, and a great future ahead of it. (And as an added bonus, you get to blame me for anything that’s broken for a good 9 months 😉

  • This is truly an amazing opportunity. If I wasn’t tied up, I would jump on this in a heartbeat!
