New Kind is seeking candidates in our Raleigh, NC office for a full-time position focusing on strategic content development, writing, and creative storytelling.
Here’s what we’re looking for in the perfect candidate:
- Love of language
Believe words can change the world? Your role will be to use language to reveal meaning in brands. You’ll be part journalist. Part poet. Part storyteller. Part designer. Part facilitator. But ultimately when we need to craft a powerful idea with words, we’ll look to you to lead the way.
- Technology savvy
You have to love technology and be comfortable speaking the language. Many of our clients are in the technology industry, so having a passion for technology is a huge plus.
- Strategic thinking
We ask why a lot. We help organizations answer this question for themselves. And then make sure that answer comes through in everything we create together. You need to be able to think strategically, write intentionally, and organize information with clarity and purpose.
- Strong voice
You must have a strong writing voice. And be comfortable telling stories across multiple formats: from high-level storytelling in presentations and video, to community engagement through social media, to copywriting in landing pages and ads. Whatever the writing equivalent of ambidextrous is, that.
- Confident curiosity
Every project is a discovery. So every project demands a mix of curiosity and confidence. We go in with open minds, trust in our process, and a desire to bring customers on the journey.
- Design mindset
At New Kind everyone is a designer. Candidates should be comfortable working in presentation software like Keynote and Powerpoint. Experience with design and collaborating with designers is a plus.
Ideal candidates will have from 4-8 years experience in content strategy and writing. Whether through brand communications, creative agencies, journalism, or other relevant communications roles.
You’ll be asked to take the lead. If you’re the type of person who doesn’t shy away from a challenge and never wants to stop learning, you’ll like it here.
New Kind is an open environment. We collaborate. We share ideas. We give feedback. We value diverse perspectives. We depend on each other. We take turns DJing on the office stereo. And when it’s time to crank on a project, we go all-in together.
- Word nerd
Designers nerd out on typography. Developers nerd out on code. If you can imagine a conversation about grammar going on for hours and dream about debates over the merits of the serial comma, nerd out with us.
We’ll be honest. The work we do isn’t always easy. We take on big challenges. We go into the unknown often.
But if you’re a driven, motivated person who wants to grow—
If you like solving complex problems for clients to help them grow—
If you want to play a key role in helping a design agency grow—
we’re excited to meet you.
