The Company

Databox, a fast-growing software company, is looking for a Content Marketing Specialist to join our marketing team in order to help optimize the content on our website, strategize and execute our link building strategy, and ultimately help support the company’s traffic and signup goals.

Our mission is to help millions of companies improve their business performance through better use of data. Our product lets companies visualize, benchmark, track and report performance data from hundreds of other tools.


The Marketing Team

Our marketing team has built a solid marketing engine that generates >200k [mostly organic] sessions every month and ~5k signups to our product. Over the last several years, our website has become the main driver of our company’s revenue growth.

We’ve published thousands of blog posts during that time–many of which are ranking and driving significant organic traffic– as well as dozens (and counting) of website pages targeting high-intent keywords and have continued to invest in creating and optimizing content as an acquisition channel. 

Due to the extensive number of blog posts we’ve published over the years, a great opportunity exists to get even more out of this existing content by updating old posts, working with partners and developing relationships to build relevant backlinks, as well as adding relevant internal links in order to build a powerful web of links across the website.

As the marketing team continues to grow, we need someone to help own the execution of this work to continually optimize and get more from the high volume of content we publish.
