Content Strategist

At AKQA we believe in the imaginative application of art and science to create beautiful ideas, products and services. With an entrepreneurial and collaborative approach, we design adaptive digital services and applications that capture the imagination, delivering impressive returns for our clients.

Content Strategists at AKQA are curious thinkers who want to investigate, understand and organize to create a better future, with a specific focus on the content that powers our clients’ experiences. To us, content is more than words on a screen, it is the story and information that drives our clients’ brands and products forward. In this role, the Content Strategist will lead the content experience for one or more projects, from auditing the current experience, identifying the gaps and opportunities, creating an ideal state and developing a plan to get there. The Content Strategist will work closely with the client, the Strategy Director and an integrated project team to formulate and deliver smart, tailored content frameworks, recommendations and systems that can serve our clients’ needs.

The city that never sleeps provides us with constant inspiration. We harness this in the heart of Union Square, where old meets new.

Our New York studio offers teams the opportunity to produce innovative work that moves world-class companies, and their communities forward. All disciplines collaborate to find the best solution while delivering each aspect to the highest standard. From products and services to imaginative storytelling, our shared vision is to create experiences that drive progress and results. We are fortunate to partner with forward-thinking clients, including Verizon, IBM, Mayo Clinic, HSS, Volvo, and Campari.

We empower our teams and clients to make what’s next, while working towards the ultimate acknowledgement, “Only in New York!”
