Technology Writer

Now Hiring: Posted April 5, 2021

At The David James Agency, we know that clear communication is the difference between successful marketing programs and lackluster results. We make it our business to provide the clarity of message our clients need to inspire action.

As demand for our expertise increases, so does our need to expand the DJA team. In particular, we are looking for our next Technology Writer. You might be that person if you have a penchant for technology, the ability to understand and transform complex concepts into compelling narratives, and a track-record of 5 to 6 years as a B2B technology marketing writer. Sound like you? Then keep reading.

Who We’re Looking For

DJA partners with B2B technology companies large and small to amplify their communication efforts. We service a wide variety of technology companies in wireless, semiconductor, telecommunications, networking, software, computing, power, and other technology industries. 

We’re looking for an enthusiastic wordsmith who can turn stodgy subjects into engaging, informative stories for our clients. We need someone who knows how to collect and distill raw data from multiple sources—reports, research, interviews—then craft impactful blogs, whitepapers, solution briefs and feature articles that help drive marketing initiatives. Our new Technology Writer will be eager to learn and write about cutting-edge telecom and networking technologies, will actively collaborate with teammates to maintain the highest DJA standards, and will provide oversite of select accounts. 

This position will be an addition to DJA’s recently opened Northern Virginia operations, but the selected candidate will work remotely during COVID restrictions.
