Director of Content Strategy

It’s 2016 and the industry has changed. Even those industries most resistant have succumbed to modernization. Enter us. Axiom is synonymous with the future of law – we created the preeminent talent marketplace for legal and we’re reinventing the way F1000 companies consume legal expertise.
It’s 2016 and the world has an information overload problem. Conveying a message for maximum affect has never been harder (or more important). Enter you. We’re looking for a Content Strategist who understands the nuance of a services-oriented approach to solutions, but is familiar with product marketing too – a leader who understands what modern looks like in B2B contexts. Have you worked in a content leadership role for 7+ years? Know how to build and implement a content strategy for each phase of the customer acquisition journey? Can you assemble and lead a team of content generation stars? We’re looking for you.
