Life Sciences Custom Content Writer 

EOE StatementWe are an equal employment opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status or any other characteristic protected by law.

Do you love to write?

Do you understand the role content plays in B2B content marketing?

Do you have an interest in the life sciences (with a background to prove it)?

If you’ve answered yes to the above, then you may be the person we are looking to become the next Life Sciences Custom Content Writer at VertMarkets. The industries we serve are constantly changing — from pharmaceutical companies bringing new life-improving and life-saving drugs to market to medical device companies innovating patient monitoring and drug delivery. The custom content and B2B marketing services we offer help create the connections these industries need to improve now and into the future.

A Custom Content Writer plays a vital role in VertMarkets’ Content Services department. Your primary responsibility will be to interview subject matter experts and conduct research to write articles on behalf of our clients. This is a challenging role that requires the ability to quickly understand the business challenges, intended audience, and content needs of your assignments to produce articles that exceed client expectations.

To excel you must have the ability to build rapport and trust with interview subjects, easily connect the dots of complex ideas and topics, and embrace what you don't know about a subject (or audience) and follow your curiosity. Your goal as a Custom Content Writer is to help our clients produce thought leadership, commercial insight content that aligns with their marketing objectives.

How do I know if this role is right for me?

  • You are comfortable writing in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment.
  • You are even more comfortable accepting criticism and critiques of your writing.
  • You believe the goal of every client interaction is to create a positive outcome. While this is a lofty goal, it is never far from your mind.
  • You can easily process and interpret multiple ideas into clear, concise objectives and outcomes.
  • You come up with great ideas, suggestions, and solutions to problems when they arise.
Position Requirements

Candidates must possess the following in order to be considered for the position:

  • At least three years of journalism, content marketing, business, or science writing experience in a deadline-driven environment.
  • Excellent working knowledge of English grammar and usage combined with a clear and concise writing style.
  • Willingness to be flexible and adapt quickly to change, as timelines, deadlines, and expectations fluctuate throughout the course of a project. The successful candidate will be able to write and continue to meet deadlines under these conditions.
  • Exceptional organization and time management skills, high attention to detail, with the ability to multi-task, prioritize, and meet tight deadlines.
  • Persistent and capable of “digging” to get the information needed to accomplish the objectives of assignments.
  • Ability to communicate scientific and technical information to diverse audiences.
  • Ability to learn new scientific concepts and thrive in an environment of rapid change.
  • Open minded, client first attitude with a helpful, kind nature and personality.

Preferred candidates will also have:

  • 7+ years of journalism, content marketing, business, or science writing experience in a deadline-driven environment.
  • Experience in copyediting/proofreading.

Performing in a challenging technical writing role sound good so far? There's more. VertMarkets offers a generous base salary along with the following benefits:

  • Competitive medical/prescription/vision/dental coverage for you and your family
  • A HSA (health savings account) with company match for those who enroll in qualified plans

  • 100% company-paid short- and long-term disability insurance
