Description

We’re recruiting for a few performance marketing companies in the tech niche who are on the look-out for outstanding content editors. The companies and their teams are 100% remote so you can work from anywhere in the world.

We’re looking for candidates who are:

  • Skilled writers by training — You should be able to demonstrate your ability to tailor content to different audiences.
  • Hungry to learn — You should be excited to learn from experts in this field and up your editing game within the performance marketing/tech niche. You should be a quick learner who can soak up information like a sponge and immediately apply what you learn consistently in your work.
  • Highly adaptable with a growth mindset — You should be comfortable working in fast-paced environments. You aren’t afraid of change and take it as an opportunity to grow.
  • Perfectionists at heart — You can follow guidelines to a T. You have a keen eye for detail and are an expert at noticing factual errors, weird formatting, typos, grammar faux pas etc. You never make the same mistake twice.
  • Amazing communicators — You must be an excellent communicator to be able to provide feedback that clearly guides your writers to deliver quality work.
  • Experienced with digital content — You don’t draw a blank when we talk about inserting meta descriptions, adding alt text, optimizing image file names, checking page layouts on web view vs. mobile view. Bonus if you already have experience creating high-converting content. Important note: Tech background is not necessary.
  • Always taking initiative — You should be resourceful and take initiative to research subjects you do not (yet) understand. You love digging deeper and you’re not ok with being “unsure”. You are not afraid to ask questions to further your own learning and growth.
  • Performance marketing enthusiasts — You should have a basic-to-good understanding of how performance marketing works (or be resourceful enough to Google it before applying).
  • Remote work veterans — We don’t want to have to explain to you how this whole remote working thing works. So you need to have excellent time management skills, organization skills, and understand that you need to be communicative and keep your team updated with your progress (rather than have them chase you).
  • Available for a minimum of 20 hours per week — We’re being straight up about this: there will be a steep learning curve so 20 hours per week is the minimum required from you to invest in your own growth.
  • Looking for long-term jobs + growth opportunities — We like working with talented people (forever and ever if possible) so we cultivate long-term working relationships with our team members. We also like grooming individuals to take on bigger roles within our teams.

There are different types of content you might be working on, including long-form blog posts, link-building articles, product reviews, and sales landing pages. 

Note: All our editors start out as trainee writers to get fluent with the new content guidelines. You’ll learn how to take a poor performing page (that may require an entire overhaul) and turn it into a page that converts. You need to be able to execute this yourself in order to edit articles independently down the line. This will be an intensive training period paid at a competitive hourly rate. Increases and progression towards a full Editor position will be subject to KPIs being met.

If you’re interested in this position, please apply here. Should you be shortlisted, you’ll be contacted to do a written test before a final decision is made. Unsuccessful applicants will not be notified.

We look forward to receiving your application! Good luck!
