Content Writer and Strategist
Seequent
Vancouver, BC
The Company

Seequent is a world leader in the development of data visualization software. Our solutions (including Leapfrog) enable people to craft rich stories and uncover valuable insights from geological data, and ultimately make better decisions about their earth, environment and energy challenges.

Seequent is full of stories. For example, one of our technical advisors is helping a mining company extract geothermal-fluid lithium from old mine workings. Another one of our staff helped find clean drinking water for a hundred thousand individuals in Gulu, Uganda.

As a growing global organization, we have offices in Canada, Chile, Brazil, Peru, Russia, Australia, South Africa, and the UK. Our primary software development centres are in New Zealand (head office), Canada and South Africa.

The Role and Opportunity

Over the course of consulting and support projects, our people deliver numerous and varied solutions, enabling our clients to become more efficient, save time or money, extract better value, streamline their processes and reduce risk and uncertainty. The knowledge and expertise our people use and gain through these projects is ideally captured, documented and made available to other individuals within Seequent. In appropriate scenarios, these stories should be re-purposed for our external websites to share with our technical and/or non-technical audiences. We refer to this knowledge and learning captured as ‘Value Stories’, which we see as key to the growth of our people and to the success of delivering solutions to our clients.

Key to this project is development of a content strategy plan that encompasses the different goals of our sectors (Civil & Environmental, Energy, Mining & Minerals) and departments. To effectively capture and disseminate these value stories, you will need to work cross-department to ensure created content supports the overall goals of the business.

The Content Writer and Strategist will be working in the Chief Customer team, which includes individuals with expertise in marketing, brand, multi-media storytelling, UX/UI, web services and community. Your direct team includes another storyteller with experience in geological modelling.
