Acquia empowers the world’s most ambitious brands to create digital customer experiences that matter. With open source Drupal at its core, the Acquia Digital Experience Platform (DXP) enables marketers, developers, and IT operations teams at thousands of global organizations to rapidly compose and deploy digital products and services that engage customers, enhance conversions, and help businesses stand out.

Headquartered in the U.S., Acquia has been named a top software company by The Software Report, rated a leader by the analyst community, and named a top place to work by the Boston Globe and the Boston Business Journal. We are Acquia. We are building for the future and we want you to be a part of it!

You will be a key contributor to the seven-person Acquia communications and content team here in Boston, helping build thought leadership and awareness across our global markets. In this role, you will have an immediate impact supporting and executing our editorial content work, the Acquia blog and our social media channels. The communications and content team is part of the 50-person Acquia marketing organization. As such, through your work, you will gain an understanding of how marketing content supports functions such as demand generation, public relations, executive thought leadership and more. 

Who is Acquia? We empower the world’s most ambitious brands to create digital customer experiences that matter. Organizations like the City of Boston, Godiva and NBC Universal use our cloud-based software to rapidly compose and deploy digital products and services. We believe in the power of community, and live by our “core DNA,” which injects creativity, commitment, integrity and enjoyment into everything we do. Our DNA celebrates how every Acquian, including you, can be a unique contributor. 

What will you do?  Responsibilities may include, but are not limited to:

  • Work with our blog editor to draft a few posts each month. We know you may not bring knowledge of the technology industry, so we’ll help you learn what you need to know. Our blogs average 800-1,200 words.
  • Support our editorial content team on projects that may range from SEO research to constructing new pages for our website.
  • Collaborate with our social media manager to create social posts.
  • Draft and distribute internal communications such as the team’s company-wide newsletter. 
  • Work with the communications team to create our chief marketing officer’s LinkedIn Live interview series. 
  • Add media coverage to Acquia’s website.

This role is perfect for a junior or senior who is interested in gaining an understanding of how a global marketing and communications team strategizes, operates and executes.  This six-month role stretches from January through June 2022. 

Are you qualified?

You are pursuing a degree in journalism, communications, English or a related field and have a solid academic record. You are detail-oriented, able to take initiative and comfortable with multi-tasking. You have excellent writing skills. You’re able to work well as part of a team, but also independently and look for opportunities to own projects that deliver results. You may not know the software industry, but you’re willing to learn.

What projects are you most excited about?

There are a number of different projects we are always working on from maintenance and performance optimizations to new customer features. For me, the most exciting and rewarding projects are where we release a piece of functionality that excites and delights our customers and makes their jobs easier.

Senior Director, Engineering

How does the company support your career growth?

With support and coaching from their managers and Global Learning Programs, Acquians have access to a robust online learning platform, a mentor program, and more.

Amy P.

Senior Director, Global Talent Development

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The trick to empowering creativity is encouraging frequent communication and iteration. Embrace behaviors, not platitudes, that remind the team there is no such thing as failure. Embed creativity and make it more than a tagline. Show that nothing is unsalvageable; focus on ‘why’ things occurred, and make everything a learning opportunity.

Brian

Manager, User Experience Research

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We are able to influence how content is delivered and monetized by global businesses in 2 ways. Acquia's founder created Drupal, the leading open source CMS in the world and we are proud of our close relationship with the Drupal community. We have also pivoted towards DXP capabilities and offer a full suite of solutions to our customers.

Charley D.

Vice President, Products
