We’re looking for a talented, driven and self-motivated content specialist to work with us to coordinate, produce and edit content for ScaleMath and our industry-leading clients.

To excel in this role you should be a strong communicator, writer, and storyteller. You must have a sense of what is most compelling to specific audiences (and target demographics) understanding what they want to see/read/hear to truly derive value from our content. You should strive to continually deliver on the voice and writing quality standards of ScaleMath as well as aim to improve & exceed them as a part of your role in the company.

You’ll work closely with our operations manager and CEO to hit client goals along with meetings to help keep you on track. We like to keep meetings to a minimum to let people focus so you’re able to thrive independently and work on crafting great content. Being a “manager of one” and holding yourself accountable is absolutely essential to thriving in this role especially as it grows.

This role is great for those who are curious and love to expand their knowledge. You’ll initially be focused on a pod of clients with industry-leading software companies (primarily SaaS) as well as eCommerce businesses. You’ll become an absolute powerhouse of a creator who can deliver content on just about every topic in online business and helping various demographics build better businesses with our clients’ software.

About ScaleMath

ScaleMath is a 100% distributed organization that’s passionate about helping the world’s greatest software companies reach more people, grow faster, and – most of all – deliver better customer experiences. So, in other words, if joining us in helping the best, smartest & world’s fastest-growing software companies keep growing excites you, we encourage you to apply for this position. All of our new hires are and will continue to be an important part of our team working closely with others on the team.

Background & Skills

We aim to train and provide resources for improvement on the job so while we’d love to say that all we’re really looking for is mindset and attitude – you definitely should be ready to come to the table with the following qualities and skills:

Affinity for writing. You’re a writer, love writing, and obsess over what makes good writing good and what makes great writing great. You either have a portfolio of published work or are actively learning about how to be a better writer. Maybe you’re passionate about writing and creating content and you naturally gravitate towards anything related to that sphere. You’ll be writing a lot in this role so being able to show an interest or foundation in writing will be helpful.

A can-do attitude. You understand resilience and being able to power through obstacles that come your way. You’re open to collaboration to get things done and you try to bring your best to everything you do.

Be a good communicator. It sounds very cliché, but you’ll be brainstorming with team members in other departments, developing and collaborating on overall content strategy for both short-term and long-term goals, and creating new content ideas so you have to be great at communicating in writing. Especially as we as a company avoid never-ending meetings when possible and easier to communicate in writing.

A self-starter. We need to see some evidence that you’re able to get up every morning, bite the bullet and just get on with it, even if you’ve tried four coffee shops and none have decent WiFi. You won’t have eyes looking over your shoulder on a day-to-day basis, you’ll be working in almost full autonomy, we’ll need to trust you to deliver the goods. In a nutshell: you must be highly motivated, goal-driven, and ready to figure things out.

You need to have immaculate attention to detail. We need to hear you grunting and moaning if a word or grammatical structure doesn’t quite look or feel right, as you’ll be creating two pieces of in-depth written content per month to be published on the blog. Writing, editing, and proofreading are a large part of this role for all content being produced.

Preferred Skills

  • A deep understanding of writing content and specifically how it applies to creating content SaaS companies for specific ideal customer profiles
  • Strong emphasis on editing skills across various writing styles to ensure overall brand messaging remains top of mind across the companies we’ll be working with together
  • Basic to intermediate social media knowledge
  • Basic to intermediate SEO knowledge
  • Basic to intermediate email marketing automation knowledge
  • Basic to intermediate graphic design skills
  • Content Marketing/SEO background (especially SaaS & DTC eCommerce)

Details to Keep in Mind

While we will start you off slow with a focus on a set of 3-5 clients so that you have the opportunity to learn about each of the companies – easing into the position. Over time, your skills will grow and you’ll be making more decisions on your own (with our support and knowledge to lean on whenever needed). And over time, depending on performance will lead to you being able to grow and manage your own team of content specialists or become a part of a growing, high-functioning team that will work alongside you.
