Job Description

The Content Director (CD) owns the content and strategy for Cypress.io’s website, blog, developer tutorials, and new initiatives.  In addition to contributing content, this role will also manage a small team including a web developer, content manager, and working with the Cypress community to crowdsource technical content, learning guides, and tutorials - getting millions of site visits from a global technical audience.

Our core audiences are in software and QA; the CD will have a strong developer background with an understanding of developer technologies, web frameworks, and JavaScript.  A major initiative you will drive is the creation of learn.cypress.io - technical tutorials authored internally and Cypress enthusiasts to accelerate the understanding and adoption by the global developer community.  Orchestrating content creation, publishing content and working across multiple teams are essential for the role.

The CD will work in an editorial, authoring, and project management capacity, collaborating with the team to re-launch the Cypress.io website, create new technical content and documentation, sourcing trusted members in the community to build content to that spec, then proofing and editing that content to publication. 

Our ideal candidate is team-oriented, able to coordinate deliverables across personnel in different parts of marketing and the larger organization, detail-oriented, and deadline-driven in a startup environment.

Please share relevant writing samples or content you have created or managed, especially technical topics, so we can get an idea of your best work. Feel free to include links to your content or portfolio in your application.
