Sick of your talents being wasted?

You’re intelligent, quirky, and confident in your voice. You’re a story teller and understand that user experience isn’t just for designers. You’re currently writing for a clickbait blog, and your soul dies a little every time you write a title including “top 10” or “the ways.” You want a job that makes your family proud.

Imagine real responsibilities like minting the voice of company and client copy, and proposing editorial strategy. Working with an international team to create and manage online content, assisting with our on and offline communities, and using a data-driven approach to validate content strategies.

Here is what we have to offer

  1. Actual responsibilities. You’ll be in charge of Chinese copywriting both in-house and for clients including product descriptions, blog and social media.
  2. Work that actually means something. Working on products that solve real problems (aka not another “Yo app”).
  3. The opportunity (and time) to experiment and learn. Testing and measuring is a big part of marketing for us. Even if it means failing a few times (or often), you’ll have the freedom to figure out what works and what doesn’t.
  4. International experience. You’ll be working with an international marketing team and well known international clients.
  5. We care about you. Competitive salary, quarterly salary reviews and 13th month bonus. Benefits include weekly team lunch, bi-quarterly team buildings, gym membership, yearly health checkups, 200RMB monthly metro credit, and more…

We’re looking for somebody who is…

  • a native Chinese speaker, and has excellent English.
  • an outstanding writer. You have experience crafting professional Chinese copy, and can change your voice to match “in house” blog, case study and press releases, as well as various client styles.
  • experienced with WeChat account management. You’ll be in charge of managing WeChat assets and copy preparation, content promotion, and performance analysis for the in-house and client WeChat accounts. You’re very familiar with the WeChat ecosystem including account management, online payment, WeChat ads, Weidian, and WeChat Analytics.
  • a data nerd. You have a methodical approach to content strategy and planning, and want to use data to set up an editorial workflow. You love campaign tagging, metrics and SEO. Bonus points if you understand Basic Marketing Automation!
  • knowledgable about Western and Chinese culture, you need to know our audience and the ways to reach them.
  • a people person. You can grow our online community and you know how to leverage our events.
  • a creative and has an eye for design, you’re not afraid to challenge the status quo, and you have a keen eye for details. Experience editing videos is a plus.
  • comfortable talking to a crowd, you will support our marketing team at the Wiredcraft hosted events like (JS Conf, UI/UX Conf, and our monthly meetups)
  • a team player, you will be working on an international team and provided well crafted copy with the support of clients, the marketing team, designers, and technical team.

Don’t sweat it if you’re not a perfect match: we don’t mind teaching people.

What the heck are you waiting for? Join us, seriously.

We’re not only nice people, we do very interesting work:

  1. We do sh*t that matters, working on our own stuff (like devo.ps) and building products for folks you may have heard of like the World Bank or the UN, things like leveraging Open Data to visualize poverty and education, or designing election platforms (not kidding).
  2. We take care of our team. We will get you the gear you want (Macbook, ergonomic chair, standing desk... just ask for it), flexible working hours (and no overtime), paid personal leave, snacks, foosball competitions, WiiU play time, weekly team lunches, team-building events and our yearly company trip (this year was Berlin and Prague for 2 weeks).
  3. We spend a lot of time experimenting with new things. Most of us are dabbling in 2 or 3 fields and we love it when folks decide to learn new stuff (on company time obviously).
  4. We’re very transparent about anything that goes at the company and let people assume the role they feel comfortable with. If you feel like you can do a better job by taking over something, it’s most likely people will be happy to let you try.
  5. We’re distributed, with folks in Berlin, Shanghai, and the US.
