We're looking for a remote content writer with experience creating friendly, helpful articles that inspire readers. You will use researching, writing, and editing skills to produce expert-level articles on assigned topics related to crochet.
You’ll be an essential part of helping Make & Do Crew meet our growth goals by creating content that connects, engages and teaches our audience. You'll learn how to write articles that rank in search results AND inspire the humans who visit our site.
On the Make & Do Crew team you'll:
- Create engaging content on a variety of topics in the crochet and knitting space
- Make intuitive and data-driven decisions to leverage content and achieve our goals
- Stay on trend with new insights and best practices with content creation
- Implement editors' feedback to your existing content
- Meet with your editors 1:1 and attend group team meetings
Make & Do Crew aims to make classic yarn crafts appealing to a new generation of modern makers. From teaching a new crochet stitch, transforming a pair of inexpensive flip flops into a stylish set of crochet moccasins, or making a cardigan from two simple hexagons, Make & Do Crew’s tutorials and patterns are on-trend, beautifully styled and easy to follow.
We are based in Denver, Colorado, and are lucky to be supported by a small team of remote employees around the globe.
Our goal with every member of team is to train and empower them so when they leave (which doesn't happen often), they're even more skilled and employable than when they joined us.
- Although you’re probably a natural-born writer, you’ve spent a lot of time perfecting your craft. You're a bit of a word nerd, have a strong grasp of grammar and you enjoy the creative aspect of communicating clearly.
- If you're not already a crocheter, you're fantastic at learning the lingo and culture of a new-to-you niche.
- You understand the importance of organic search and search engine optimization (and if you don't, you're willing to learn).
- You're organized and independent, but you love working in a collaborative and positive team environment.
- You love creating compelling, well-structured content and you're a continuous learner.
- You want to grow in the role and give us the honor to grow your career with us.
- You’re okay receiving communications from us with emojis. :D
