We, at Leggett & Platt Inc., are searching for a Digital Content Librarian within our Marketing + Creative team to help support our businesses.  As a global-diversified manufacturing company, it’s sometimes hard to explain all the different things we do.  We like to say, “we’re the biggest company no one has ever heard of.”  We are confident you interact with one of our products in your daily life without knowing it.  Whether it’s the mattress you sleep on, the car you drive, the plane you fly on, or the furniture you sit on, our high-quality components are there supporting you.

As a Digital Content Librarian, you’ll help manage a growing number of digital assets including images, icons, PDFs, video, and 3D, as well as digitizing historically relevant content. You will tag, organize, curate, manage, maintain, and secure assets in the digital asset management (DAM) system so assets can be easily searched and found within the system. The ideal candidate will possess advanced knowledge of digital asset library management and effectively collaborate with many groups within Leggett, regularly supplying content for various users across different levels of the company. You will also help with general user support, troubleshooting, site analysis, and system audits.

  • Schedule and assist with DAM user training for different audiences, both internal and external to Leggett
  • Scan and add historical documentation to the DAM for research/reference
  • Assist in connecting DAM content with PIM content for digital uses, providing support to IT and others
To be successful in this role, you’ll need:
