Stellenbosch, South Africa

Marketing Writer and Editor

We won’t mind our P’s and Q’s: we want more than a run-of-the-mill wordsmith dotting I’s and crossing T’s. We’re a B2B software company burning for an A-grade storyteller genuinely interested in technology. Fintech is exciting. Your job is to convey that to people who might otherwise think ZZZZZZZZZZ.

The ideal candidate

As is typical of a writer, you will work alone for sustained periods of time, but you will also interact, sometimes closely, with subject matter experts (senior executives, product managers, engineers, external industry experts) to ensure that our customers’ and prospects’ questions are anticipated and answered in advance and that product functionality is accurately positioned and portrayed.

The ideal candidate will be self-directed and work well in an environment in a rapidly expanding company in which roles and assignments are fluid.

The role

You will help in creating, maintaining, and updating marketing documentation used to sell and explain Entersekt’s market-leading mobile app security and authentication solutions and our expanding suite of payments enablement offerings. You will also contribute very regularly to Entersekt’s packed content marketing schedule, writing and editing longer-form articles, blog posts, and high-quality “thought leadership” that may or may not be based on interviews with senior executives.

Responsibilities

  • Writing formal marketing collateral like product brochures, solution sheets, white papers, and case studies
  • Researching and writing original content for external parties like Entersekt’s regional public relations partners, industry publications, and other requesting organizations; interviewing company executives and subject matter experts and ghost-writing the same
  • Assisting other team members with copy or editorial assistance, including for newsletters, the company blog, advertorials, advertisements, the company website, and email campaigns
  • Ad hoc editorial work for internal clients, which could include help with RFPs/RFIs, industry surveys, customer-directed communications, and HR and senior executive communications

Skills & Experience

Successful candidates for the role will generally possess the following qualifications:

  • At least a bachelor’s degree in a journalistic, publishing, educational, or linguistic discipline
  • Excellent English writing and editing skills, with a strong interest in and facility for conveying specialist domain knowledge to a business audience, clearly and with creative flair
  • Solid experience in a job of this type, with a sustained focus on information technology, telecommunications, and/or financial services being highly advantageous (experience in public relations, marketing, and/or business development is not necessary but would be beneficial)
  • South African citizenship or permanent residency
