Description

Job Description

Have you ever enjoyed Arnold®, Brownberry® or Oroweat® bread? A Thomas'® English muffin or bagel? Or perhaps snacked on a Sara Lee®, Entenmann's® or Marinela® cake or donut? If the answer is yes, then you know Bimbo Bakeries USA!

Bimbo Bakeries USA is part of Grupo Bimbo, the world's largest baking company with operations in 33 countries. Bimbo Bakeries USA (BBU) employs 20,000 associates across the U.S. in bakeries, sales centers, corporate offices and on sales routes to ensure our consumers have the freshest products to feed their families at every meal. But our associates come to work for much more - the chance to feed their own lives through exciting work that offers the opportunity to make a real difference in their professional and personal lives every day.

Bimbo Bakeries U.S. is looking for a Content Strategist who's ready to take the next step in their career.

The Content Strategist is a critical new role inside BBU responsible for the development of highly effective brand building content as we ramp up investment in our brands. Ultimately that content will be delivered across the full consumer journey - whether broad based TV or digital video ads, influencer partnerships, conversion-oriented shopping ads, or site and email content. This role is empowered within a small but mighty test & learn team dedicated to identifying the best combination of audiences and content prior to scaling into full experiences and campaigns. Once the team has enough evidence that the ideas are worthy of bigger scale investments, the Content Strategist briefs and influences the scale campaigns, and then moves on to the next challenge for the next brand team. The role will support various brands across our portfolio.

This role brings deep expertise and an impressive track record building brands through great content. Someone who has a ready toolbox of insight generation tricks and techniques spanning qualitative and quantitative research and data mining. Someone who knows the consumer won't tell us what they want, and figures out how to find the insight anyway. Someone who then combines the brand voice and the voice of the consumer into inspiring and clear briefs that provide specificity yet creative freedom for content creation resources.

You'll be the driving creative force behind taking our brand communications to the next level. You're contributing to, and learning from a team leading a data-driven marketing revolution. You're excited to join us for that transformation, not just when the hard work is done.

Main Responsibilities:
  • Finding the sweet spot between what audiences need, desire and care about, and the best ways for our brands to connect with those audiences
  • Being the trusted thought leader to our brand teams and agencies on what truly distinguishes content from highly effective, useful creative content for our brands
  • Contributing as a peer with the others to influence best-in-class marketing communications and new methods to deliver that outcome through an agile test & learn program
  • Building the BBU playbook for consistently developing effective creative content, both in test mode and when scaling
  • Selecting and managing the right technologies, tools and resources to support great content and execution - including how to deliver the right assets to enable machines to dynamically optimize creative and the BBU brands to create best-in-class digital experiences across the consumer journey


Job Requirements

Behavioral Competencies:

  • A natural inclination to collaborate with media experts to understand digital media performance, and the ability to iterate on a creative approach based on that data
  • Experience breaking down silos, creating understanding that enables faster decision making through a single unified view of audiences and their interactions with the brand
  • A track record of becoming sought after in a large organization for your advice, guidance and get-it-done approach - brand teams and colleagues seek you out for insight, help and momentum
  • Enjoy a fast pace and generating a long backlog of great ideas against consumer/brand insights and trends
  • Diving into analytics, ad or consumer testing platforms is second nature
  • "Good at brand strategy" has been in your performance reviews or informal feedback over the years - yet people have a hard time pinning you down as a "creative" or a strategist
  • Know first-hand what it's like to be on the receiving end of good and bad briefs. The brief that confuses or frustrates versus the one that unleashes the best in the creative teams
  • Comfort and go-to methods for challenging the status quo in healthy ways, setting a high bar for what is possible
  • Know how to coach the best from internal and external agencies, makers and partners
  • Gritty when needed to move the project forward - eg. unafraid to get your hands dirty editing or trying a line of copy, digging for the inspirational example, prototyping options
  • Pride in personal contribution, while just as excited in coaching the team to a great outcome
  • A strong eye for pattern recognition in successful brand building, versus constant reinvention and thinking out of the box

Professional skills & experience

A Bachelor's degree in Marketing or a related field is preferred. A combination of education, training and experience that results in demonstrated competency to perform the work may be substituted.
  • 6+ years either agency or client side as a content strategist, strategic or account planner, communications planner, or an art director or writer with proven campaign and social content concepting skills
  • Hands on experience creating, planning and/or briefing for effective digital campaigns spanning online video, paid social, influencer, native, search and site
  • At least 2 years on a brand with significant TV budgets and working knowledge of what makes effective TV content
  • Proven brand-building experience with at least half of your time with larger successful packaged goods brands
  • Strong conceptual, composition, photo art direction and ideation skills - digitally native, understand what works in key platforms, yet able to think about the overall design and voice to break through anywhere
  • Awareness of design research activities and human-centered design approach to problem-solving
  • Experience in developing creative test approaches, passion for testing and learning how to break challenges into testable ideas - not solely about the big idea.
  • Experience in finding production solutions to enable test & learn on a small scale while expressing the core idea
  • Interpersonal savvy and listening skills
  • Preferred - experience in developing creative content for packaged food brands, in the food category and with a high-growth small brand or two
  • Strong analytical skills - specifically in the measuring, reporting and effective communication of quantitative and qualitative learning.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills, with the ability to use storytelling to influence decisions
