The Big Data phenomenon is a once-in-a-decade opportunity for companies to rethink how they store, analyze, and act on increasingly massive amounts of data.

Data Informed, the new online publication from Wellesley Information Services (WIS), helps business and IT professionals gain value from big data technology and methodologies. We are looking for a writer to join our editorial team who enjoys learning about new technology, understands how businesses work, and can articulate how to apply new technology to business.

As a writer for our new digital publication you will:

  • Maintain a daily blog
  • Interview vendors, practitioners, business leaders
  • Know how to create in-depth, long-form content as well as informative and entertaining short pieces
  • Produce podcasts and Web videos
  • Build relationships with key people in the industry
  • Be visible in the community, representing the publication through social media and at events
  • Know how to promote his or her work through social media, build a personal brand

WIS believes that our people are one of our most important assets, and we invest in them accordingly. We offer our employees’ health/dental/vision benefits, 401(k), Life and AD&D, FSA, ongoing professional development through WIS University and much more.  You’ll enjoy free, fresh bagels every Wednesday morning and all the coffee, fruit and snacks you need every day.
