Maslansky + Partners, LLC

Senior Language Strategist

Job Locations US-NY-New York
Regular Full-Time


maslansky + partners is the leader and creator of Language Strategy®. We find the right words to make audiences listen, care, and act, based on a simple but powerful idea: it’s not what you say, it’s what they hear®. 


We are researchers, strategists, and writers who spend our days helping the world's most influential and innovative organizations harness the power of language to shape opinion and change behavior. 


Clients look to us for the words that will help them win. To lift a brand or reframe a reputation. To energize an issue, introduce a product, or restore trust. To navigate a crisis or simplify the complex. 


Do you have a passion for persuasion, solving puzzles, and understanding what makes people tick?   


We’re looking for people with exemplary critical thinking and communication skills to help clients solve high-stakes challenges at the firm that invented Language Strategy.  


What you’ll do:

  • Build expertise. Become experts in the client’s challenge and industry
  • Uncover insights. Turn data from client interviews, data analytics, and qualitative and quantitative research into meaningful insights about how to address our clients’ objectives.
  • Develop persuasive messages. Identify different communication approaches and write persuasive messages for testing.
  • Create compelling narratives. Turn insights into recommended strategies and build compelling narratives to effectively communicate our ideas to clients.
  • Mentor and manage. Mentor junior team members and manage team stakeholders to ensure effective project execution.


What we’re looking for:

  • Experience with strategic communication challenges. The right experience can come from a lot of places, but it is likely to come from 4-6 years of work as an agency strategic planner, brand marketer, corporate communicator, political campaign strategist, pollster, market researcher, linguist, or behavioral scientist. You’ve learned a lot along the way and can apply insights and perspectives to new challenges.
  • Strong critical thinking and persuasive communication skills. You understand how to analyze problems, synthesize information into meaningful insight, and turn insight into strategies, narratives, and arguments that are clear, concise, and compelling.
  • A passion for personal and business growth. You are intellectually curious and deeply empathetic. Confident and coachable. Ambitious and collaborative. Eager to deliver your best and earn the next piece of business. We are looking for a rare blend of qualities that will help ensure that you fit in – and that you help us stand out.
  • Experience with polling and market research. If you have serious market research experience, that’s great. But experience working with polling and other types of market research – as a client, agency, or otherwise – is a must.


Four reasons to join the maslansky + partners team:

  1. You won’t be bored. You will work with diverse clients and industries on diverse challenges that allow you to learn every step of the way. 
  2. You will be challenged and grow. We’ll make you a stronger strategic thinker, a better writer, and a more confident presenter, as part of a culture focused on feedback and committed to personal growth. If you are good, you will not get lost…your contribution will be recognized and rewarded. 
  3. You can make a big impact. Our team is encouraged to use our passion and expertise to support causes that matter. Through work with PENCIL, Head Start, SBP, and our Project Good Words program, we’ve improved access to education, career opportunities, disaster relief, and clean water…to name a few.
  4. You’ll definitely have a good time.  We do serious work but never take ourselves too seriously. Lots of work and lots of fun to help you stay energized and engaged.
