Hey, we’re Bunsen. We do creative work for science companies who are solving some of the toughest problems on the planet. Mostly, we help these folks be understood so that they can achieve their most ambitious goals. We’re creators who need the collaborative support of a Content Strategist. That might be you.
As a Content Strategist, you're the closest to the information, and you'll be the content backbone of each project. (Jellies need not apply.) We'll look to you to dazzle us with your overarching strategies and gracefully keep project nuances in check—from discovery all the way to the big launch day.
We'll fiercely depend on you—like guacamole depends on perfectly ripe avocado—to ensure the integrity of the information remains strong through each handoff and every client revision. And to get 'er done, you'll work closely with our multifaceted team of scientists, writers, designers, strategists, and developers from around the world. (We think they're pretty great, and we'll think you'll be too.)
For us to swipe right, there are two main things you’ll need to succeed. 1. You'll need to be intensely curious (we love intensity) and 2. have the ability to understand, synthesize, and seamlessly communicate complex ideas to our team, our clients, and our client’s customers. We need someone who can unravel our client’s technologies, craft a compelling narrative around them, and organize the information in a way that is accessible (and, heck, desirable!!) to diverse audiences.
