At Dataquest, we teach data science to a community of hundreds of thousands of students from all across the world. Our students learn by analyzing real data, and eventually build projects on topics ranging from predicting the stock market to finding the best NBA players. Students all over the world have landed exciting new jobs at companies like SpaceX, Facebook, and Microsoft by using Dataquest. You can read more about our philosophy here, and learn more about what our students think here.

We’re looking for someone who can increase our impact by engaging students early on through content marketing. Currently, this primarily happens through our blog and Q&A sites like Quora. We’re looking for someone who can understand the broader data science landscape, create audience personas, and create a content strategy for targeting those personas. This content strategy will be executed by yourself, our internal content team, and external authors that we collaborate with. You’ll use conversion data to determine if the strategy was successful, and iterate if needed.

We view content marketing as a lead-in to our learning content, and we’d like to move towards our blog being a part of our product. Ideally, you’ll be able to coordinate with our content team to ensure that launches are coordinated.
