Bizly has innovated an intuitive all-in-one system that automates all the content and workflows for organizing a great meeting, replacing countless tools and hours of research. Bizly enables user-generated playbooks and company-generated playbooks, as well as offers a marketplace of DIY expert content from thought leaders, business authors, experts, and creatives.

We are proud to work with the world’s leading brands including iconic companies such as Apple, McDonald’s, Workday, Merck, and dozens of others. We’ve had 10x ARR growth over the past year and we are now embarking on launching a freemium version of the Bizly product to the world in early 2021.

Our leadership team is comprised of diverse SaaS leaders with expertise in the future of work. We are backed by leading VCs and world-class entrepreneurs including JetBlue Technology Ventures, Eric Yuan (CEO of Zoom), and many others.

Our headquarters is in NYC, but all roles are remote-friendly.

The Role

As the VP of Content at Bizly, you will be charged with cultivating a network of app partners, content partners, and creators who will contribute playbooks to the Bizly library, as well as work to build our library of original content. You’ll assist Bizly in defining and unlocking a business model around free and premium playbooks.

We’re looking for someone who is entrepreneurial and business savvy, capable of making sound partnership decisions from the ground up. The ideal candidate is also creative and has a high sense of curation — being able to define the quality threshold, tone, and style of Bizly’s content. We’re looking for someone who can lead and drive vision while not being afraid of gettings hands-on with the content.

In this role, you will own the content business at Bizly, working cross-functionally with the marketing and product team, and you will manage a team of content contributors and writers as necessary. You’ll also work to identify areas of opportunity with our existing customers to share and amplify their user-generated playbooks.

Success will be measured at first by compelling user engagement and user stories and then later by growth, revenue, and market share.

What we are looking for

We are open to a variety of backgrounds and experience levels. In general, we believe successful candidates will most likely have experience in product marketing, business development, partnerships, and creative. We also believe the ideal candidate has all of the following qualities that align to our core values:

  • Champion the mission: we're looking for someone who is at the prime of their career and wants the chance to make a huge impact and leave behind a legacy. We are looking for someone to help us create a new asset class of content built for group consumption. This is a huge idea, so we need someone who can think really big, but also has the tactical skills to make it happen. We're looking for "a barrel" (more info here).
  • Fanatical focus on simplicity: there's a million things we could do around content. What's the one thing that can drive the most value now? We are looking for someone who can walk in darkness and find the simplest and clearest path to success.
  • Embrace diversity: this role involves working with quirky and interesting creatives. Thus, we need someone who can embrace the creative sensibility, listen to people who may be very different from them, and find a common ground.
  • Be humble, accountable, and constantly improve: we're looking for someone who is quick to identify key problems ALONG with a solution. They are not afraid to make mistakes, but also recognize the mistake, find the learning, and grow. We are looking for someone visionary and with a highly-detailed execution mindset.
  • Woot! Celebrate success: we're a startup. The odds are against us, but we believe we'll win. We are looking for someone who is an optimist and celebrates all the small things along the way.

Great work deserves great perks!

  • Comprehensive medical, vision, and dental coverage
  • Fun work environment and company culture with an upbeat, first-class team
  • Regular fun meetings (we're a meetings company!), including happy hours, and more
  • Unlimited vacation policy
