This is a remote, contract position for approximately 20/hrs week. Strong likelihood of growing into a full-time role.
We’re starting a new blog on web development and dev ops topics, and we’re looking for someone to lay the SEO groundwork and oversee content creation.
You’ll be working on a brand new product from the MeetEdgar team. Since 2014, we’ve grown Edgar into a profitable tool with thousands of happy, beautiful, paying customers, and we want your help to do it all over again!
This is a greenfield project, which means you’ll be instrumental in making the decisions of how it all comes together. (So if you like having a wide berth and building cool stuff, yay!)
This role will be kicking off our marketing team and working alongside a small team of developers who are currently building the product. While the project is relatively new, you’ll also be a member of our larger MeetEdgar team, and have all the associated resources (like design and dev help) to pull from.
You will do the keyword research to create an in-depth SEO and content plan for a brand new company blog. That includes making sure all of the technical details (like Google search console, proper sitemaps, etc.) are covered, as well as ensuring that SEO best practices are in place for all content from day one.
You won’t be the primary writer, but you will be overseeing and editing writers, as well as doing content research and link building of your own. (You’re less of a blogger and more of an editor/manager.)
Your duties include:
Systemizing SEO practices for blog and site content
Sourcing and managing freelancers and guest posters
Sourcing curated/roundup content
Forming relationships with writers, experts, content partners, etc.
Ideally, you have some kind of background or interest in the dev ops/development world. You do not need to be an expert yourself, per say, but you need to be familiar with the basic terms/concepts, and be prepared to manage a blog tailored to readers with a strong background in those subjects.
We’re a small team of 30-some people, all working remotely across the US & Canada. We do a lot of collaborating and meme-swapping on Slack, along with virtual team meetings and super-futuristic video calls. We also do a twice-annual retreat week where we work together on cool projects all day and rock the karaoke mic all night. (Spoiler alert: This means you have to be willing and able to travel to those retreats! The karaoke, however, is optional.)
We’re proudly bootstrapped and profitable, which means we get to turn down VC money a lot and keep doing things the way we like. We’re pretty serious about building and maintaining an awesome, positive company culture, so, you know, no jerks.
We’ll probably get along if you’re someone who wants to be creative, have a pretty-serious-but-not-inhuman amount of responsibility, and work with people who make going to work not suck. (And be one of those people yourself. We like those people.)
And on that note, we’re proud to be an equal-opportunity employer genuinely committed to building a diverse team, and to fostering the type of inclusive environment in which diversity thrives.
