About the Role

Stacksphere helps small-to-midsize business owners and decision makers save time by delivering deeply-researched content on critical software needs, allowing them to spend time doing what they do best. We’re thinking bigger and better about how to tackle the B2B Tech opportunity, and we’re connecting tech buyers with software vendors more efficiently. 

We are seeking a talented Principal Writer to join our team. The Principal Writer will be responsible for researching software on behalf of our customers, developing a deep understanding of the products and services available, conducting expert interviews and surveys to gain invaluable user insights and ultimately producing high-quality content that helps our customers make the best software choice for their business needs. The ideal candidate will have strong problem solving skills, exceptional research skills, and the ability to communicate complex concepts in a clear and engaging manner.

This is not your typical Principal Writer position.  We are looking for someone that enjoys a challenge, wants to collaborate with cross-functional leaders, and is passionate about creating the very best content for business leaders.  If that’s you, we welcome your application.  

The role is based in Charlotte, NC with a hybrid office requirement (3 days per week in our South Park office, 2 days remote).

Your Day-to-Day

  • Synthesize complex information into clear, concise, and engaging written content, including articles, guides, whitepapers, and product reviews.
  • Develop comprehensive buyers’ guides, comparison articles, and decision-making resources to help businesses evaluate and select the right technology solutions.
  • Conduct in-depth research on B2B software and services across various categories, such as CRM, HR systems, project management tools, and accounting software.
  • Stay up-to-date on industry trends, market developments, and emerging technologies relevant to small-to-mid size businesses.
  • Collaborate with subject matter experts, industry professionals, and internal stakeholders to gather insights and validate findings, including creating and executing surveys.
  • Assess existing competitor content to identify opportunities for our content to create unique value for readers.
  • Ensure all content is accurate, well-researched, and aligned with our brand voice, style guidelines, and SEO best practices.
  • Work closely with the editorial team to brainstorm ideas, plan content calendars, and contribute to overall content strategy.
  • Monitor content performance metrics and user feedback to identify opportunities for improvement and optimization.

About You

  • Bachelor’s degree in English, Creative Writing, Journalism, Communications, or related field preferred.
  • Proven expertise with 8+ years experience as a writer within a digital landscape. B2B or tech experience is preferred but not required.
  • Excellent research skills with the ability to gather, analyze, and synthesize complex information from multiple sources. We are seeking someone with experience owning qualitative research processes end-to-end including surveys, interviews, and demos. 
  • Exceptional writing skills with a keen eye for detail, grammar, and style.
  • Experience with SEO best practices and content optimization techniques.
  • Problem solving and agility. You thrive in an environment where there is no playbook for success. You can adapt to different tasks and shift priorities as needed. You have an entrepreneurial spirit and are energized by helping to build a brand new team.
  • An inherent drive to be excellent: You are not satisfied with average. You are enthusiastic and committed to do whatever it takes to get the job done at a world-class level.
  • Insatiably curious: An investigative journalist at heart that is committed to getting to the bottom of things and learning as much about a topic as possible to inform your perspective.

As set forth in Stacksphere’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
