Getting together with real people in real life makes powerful things happen. Side hustles become careers, ideas become movements, and chance encounters become lifelong connections. At Meetup, you’ll help create the future of real community—a future where people show up, do things, and actually talk. Join us - we need your help.
The Content Strategy Lead will be instrumental in ensuring the stories and messages we create are powerful, clear and consistent across all our channels. You'll share your vision and be involved from concept to execution to announcement - engaging team members, users, and organizers at each step. It's a thrilling and pivotal time for us to place the power of words in experienced hands.
You're perfect for this role if you are versatile, and if you love both high-level strategy as well as being hands-on in the creation process. You're a strong communicator and you know how to build consensus for ideas, as well as bring cross-functional teams through the finish line.

- Work with designers to identify and resolve inconsistencies and surface opportunities in our core user flows (RSVP, Join, Registration)
- Initiate research projects, including content audits and gap analysis to identify new opportunities to level up
- Work with a content strategist and designers to lead the effort in simplifying taxonomy for topics, categories, and Meetups
- Collaborate across teams to create, refine, and ensure consistency of Meetup's brand voice
- Collaborate with UX Research and design to evolve and communicate an understanding of what messages work with different segments and why
- Design and implement lightweight workflows to help the team efficiently produce high-quality content
Ideally, you'll possess:

About Meetup Meetup brings people together in thousands of cities to do more of what they want to do in life. It is organized around one simple idea: when we get together and do the things that matter to us, we’re at our best. And that’s what Meetup does. It brings people together to do, explore, teach and learn the things that help them come alive. For example, people run marathons, thanks to running Meetups. They write, thanks to writing Meetups. They change their careers, thanks to career Meetups. Because at Meetups, people welcome each other. They talk, help, mentor, and support each other – all in pursuit of moving their lives forward.
