Head of Content Services Cognizant Interactive
Cognizant Interactive is a growing customer and employee experience group within a top tier, global technology consulting firm. We engage with clients to imagine and design new and valuable digital experiences. Forward looking, yet practical, we are focused on harnessing deep consumer and commercial understanding along with cutting edge technology to impact peoples lives in meaningful ways.
We are seeking a seasoned Content Leader to be a compelling client-facing ambassador of the North American Content practice. Focusing particularly on elevating our sales activities, the leader will be able to clearly define and articulate the different focus offerings and introduce them to business and technology stakeholders. A critical additional requirement is to connect to our significant offshore capabilities around Content and ensure that our different focus offerings are well understood and are effectively delivered across geographies.
For our clients, the ability to take advantage of lower cost, quality content expertise has shifted from an occasionally used tactic to a strategic imperative in their ability to meet the ever-expanding requirements for relevant content, distributed across channels and contexts. We believe that content fuels experiences and that the ability to create and adapt content at scale is a key challenge for our clients. The world to content is shifting rapidly to a model in which humans craft and machines scale... In 3 years, the majority of campaigns and platforms will be orchestrated and optimized by machines, creative executions will be fashioned by androids and content will be discovered, created, adapted and translated by robots. We will be a major player in this market.
The desired incumbent is an inclusive, experienced, confident and generous leader who values people, process, ideas and quality. Fluent in the world of Content Services and well versed in software development and management consulting practices and language. An inspiring thought leader with a talent for articulating visions and guiding teams to realize them.
