About us

We’re a team of SEOs, content strategists, marketers, engineers and data scientists on a mission to improve content across the internet.

Why and How?

We live at the intersection of AI, SEO, and content strategy.

There’s no such thing as “SEO content” anymore.

In 2013, a little Hummingbird told us that Google would rely less on keywords and backlinks and more on AI to measure comprehensiveness, authority, and user intent when determining the best content for a query.

Since then, the job content teams have to do has only gotten more complex.

But most of the truly useful AI solutions to help them navigate this new world were accessible only to those with the technical skills or big budgets to use them.

That’s why we built MarketMuse.

By bringing data scientists and engineers together with content strategy and SEO experts, we could make industry-leading AI accessible to SEO and content teams of all sizes and skill levels.

We started out by giving our users the tools to analyze one topic at a time. Then, we helped them research and analyze entire content inventories at scale. Now, we’re focused on using AI and natural language generation to write great content for you.

But it all comes back to the same mission:

We want to help you publish more and publish better every time.

Pushing the technology limits to be market leaders is a great adventure.
Annabelle Hopper Junior Sales Engineer
I interned on the Marketing team in College and was recently brought back on as a Junior Sales Engineer! I cannot say enough great things about my experience at MarketMuse. For starters, the team culture is truly one of a kind. Authenticity radiates, teammates have your back and we have fun while doing it! The opportunity to work cross-functionally has allowed me to grow into a dynamic team player with an arsenal of skills in my tool belt. Not only do we get to work with cutting-edge AI technology, but also trail blaze the future of content marketing. Lastly, the leaders genuinely care about personal and professional development and will go the extra mile to help you achieve long-term goals.
Stephen Jeske Sr Content Strategist
I like working at MarketMuse. It’s a wonderful environment and offers a great opportunity to develop your skills, contribute in a meaningful way, and be recognized for your contribution.
Tatiana Chua Sr Marketing Associate
I’ve never worked with a chiller, more respectful team. From the leadership team to individual contributors, everyone here is no BS, level-headed, and understanding that we’re all just trying to do our best. Ironically, for a company innovating artificial intelligence technology, the people behind the scenes have also created a humane workplace fit for life’s modern-day demands.
