“I look forward to telling Zipongo’s story to potential new clients in fun and dynamic ways.”
Eric Jost is the B2B Content Manager at Zipongo. A Kansas City native, Eric earned an MPH from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. There, he discovered his passion for health communications, which inspired him to pursue a freelance writing career. Since moving back to the States, Eric has worked as a communications strategist in the healthcare industry.
At Zipongo, Eric oversees the B2B content strategy to support our customer success and sales teams. He’s excited to create compelling content to promote Zipongo’s nutrition solutions to new and existing customers.
1. Tell us why you joined Zipongo.
I moved to San Francisco nearly five years ago to pursue a content job with a physician partnership in the East Bay. I’m grateful for my time and experience there, but I was looking for an opportunity to merge my passions for content development and health promotion. The B2B Content Manager role at Zipongo seemed to do just that — while also mixing in my love for cooking and food!
2. What are you most proud of, personal or career-wise?
I was hired as a healthcare writer and editor at my previous job with little professional marketing experience. By the time I left, I had written nearly 500,000 words across internal and external facing pieces and overseen numerous on-location video and photo shoots, outputting dozens of videos. I also oversaw the content team and led a complete redesign our company’s website twice.
3. What’s your favorite restaurant in San Francisco?
My absolute favorite restaurant in San Francisco is Frascati in Russian Hill. They’re Mediterranean-inspired and, among other things, prepare an amazing roast chicken. You also can’t go wrong with their seared halibut.
4. Can you share something that ranks high on your bucket list?
Visiting Tokyo was at the top of my bucket list and I was lucky to go there earlier this year. What’s left? Lots! Starting with trips to much of Europe, Southeast Asia, and Morocco.
