Hearsay Systems is looking for a leader to build out our Content Services offering!
Our Professional services offerings are aimed at helping our clients maximize the value derived out of our platform. To that end, we have identified social content published through our platform as a significant lever. We have found clients with a well-defined content strategy coupled with operational excellence derive significantly more value from the platform. At the same time, clients with significant strategic and operational gaps end up under-leveraging our platform. By offering a robust set of content-related services, we will be able to address such gaps and ensure all clients are successfully leveraging our platform. As the Director of Content Strategy, you will have the unique opportunity to envision and build out the Content Services offering within Hearsay’s Professional Services organization.
