  • Create full-funnel content pillars and derivatives (infographics, blogs, video scripts, ebooks, white papers, events/webinar programming etc.) for integrated marketing programs aligned to target personas and buying stages
  • Identify opportunities for new content types, channels, and visual material (image/video) or engagement tools (surveys, calculators) to maximize relevance for target audiences
  • Provide guidance to stakeholders for the best formats/deliverables to achieve their goals
  • Regularly report on content performance using data derived through analytics tools to identify opportunities and learnings
  • Collaborate with Riskified’s in-house design team to develop compelling visuals to bring the writing to life


  • 7-10+ years of professional writing experience and content strategy within an enterprise B2B environment (ecommerce, fraud, payments or fintech experience preferred)
  • 3+ years experience in a content leadership position, managing a team of in-house writers and external resources
  • Effective communicator and collaborator alongside excellent writing and editing skills
  • Demonstrated successes in capturing target audiences through engaging content
  • Supervise the production of multiple regional projects under tight deadlines
  • Demonstrated experience utilizing next generation content tools (GA4, Semrush, etc)
  • Obsessive about measuring and optimizing the performance of your content
  • Proven track record developing and executing successful B2B corporate-level positioning, content and brand campaigns
