We're looking for a writer. Preferably, one that doesn't suck. ;)
Seriously though. This person should be:
- A Digital Native: Ya gots to know how to use the computers. We'll teach you the technical marketing stuff. But we don't give Microsoft Office lessons. (Because we don't use Microsoft Office. Because it's awful.)
- Marketing Obsessed: You better read Kissmetrics, Unbounce, AdEspresso, etc. Because we write for Kissmetrics, Unbounce, AdEspresso, etc.
- Comfortable Writing. A Lot: Average content is 2-3k words. Each typically takes ~4 hours. Most of that is research and prep. Sounds boring... because it is. You have to derive some weird pleasure out of that process. Most don't. I don't blame them.
Personality is a plus. We write about boring, dry, technical topics. But that doesn't mean the content should be boring. In fact, we go out of our way to spice things up. Storytelling is a must. Inappropriate jokes and pop culture references almost always work, too.
This position is virtual and we're looking for everything from contract / freelance to full-time. You can be sitting on a beach for all we care. You could stay up all night and write after some rave (crazy kids). But your writing better be on time. And attention to detail better be spot on.
Otherwise, we're fun and laid back. Life's too short.
I hope this sounds interesting. At least, not ungodly boring like that last position you just read about at some nameless, faceless, insurance company.
Questions? Lemme know.
Thanks and hope to talk soon,
