Steve Jost

Senior Vice President, Content Strategy

Steve works to identify new strategies to develop and deliver content for our clients.

Using his Census experience, Steve has led our data science team to develop several data tools for clients that help promote their missions. He has also helped craft a multi-channel web and social media effort for the Board of the National Science Foundation to promote their congressionally mandated report on the state of America’s science and technology. Before joining Subject Matter in 2014, he spent more than seven years as a top official at the U.S. Census Bureau, overseeing the two largest outreach and promotion campaigns ever undertaken by the federal government for the 2000 and 2010 Census. Steve’s campaigns were recognized for groundbreaking market research to shape successful multicultural outreach efforts. His 2010 campaign alone earned more than 150 awards and honors from the advertising, public relations and media industries. He has twice received the Department of Commerce’s highest recognition for distinguished public service, the Secretary’s Gold Medal, as well as a Silver and a Bronze Medal.
