Internet Privacy Initiative BV is looking for an experienced copywriter with SEO and Conversion Rate Optimization experience to add to our growing English editorial team for our multilingual website, VPNOverview.com.

Who We Are

Internet Privacy Initiative BV is a publishing company based in the Netherlands. We have two websites, VPNOverview.com and VPNGids.nl, that mainly focus on informing the general public about VPNs, online security, online freedom, and worldwide legislation about these topics. We do that by reviewing VPNs, antivirus software, password managers, private browsers, geopolitics, streaming, downloading, and more.

Available in 10 languages (currently), VPNOverview.com has purely informative content, aimed at making difficult technical subjects understandable to even the least tech-savvy of users, and more commercial content where we advise a certain solution (VPN, antivirus, password manager, etc.) to our visitors. We pride ourselves on the extensive research we do and we do not recommend solutions that don't work.

Your daily activities will consist of:

  • Writing new articles on various topics related to VPNs, web safety, online privacy, and internet freedom.
  • Updating and improving existing articles that have already been published on the website.
  • Optimizing articles for search engines and conversions.

  • Adding new posts in WordPress’ Gutenberg editor, including adding and updating Gutenberg blocks.
  • Reviewing your recent articles in LookerStudio and completing available ongoing training as needed to improve your writing.
