About Free Agency:
Free Agency is a talent startup modernizing how people find & succeed at work. We provide concierge services and digital products to knowledge workers, mirroring Hollywood-style talent representation and management. Unlike recruiters, we’re entirely paid by and motivated by the individual candidates we work with, enabling us to focus on their career outcomes. Their success is our success.
We work primarily in the tech industry: through our platform, mid to C-level folks in product, engineering, design, marketing, and ops are doing incredible work at companies like Square, Drift, Roblox, Reddit, Netflix, Amazon, SpaceX, Notion, Peloton, and hundreds more. We’re backed by top-tier venture capital firms like Resolute Ventures, Bloomberg Beta, and Ludlow Ventures.
***Please note: this role is only available to US-based candidates with U.S. work authorization. Candidates located outside of US will not be considered, and we cannot sponsor work visas.***
About the job:
You will be responsible for writing or editing documents related to our clients (Free Agents), helping us pitch them to companies, tell their stories to potential future employers, and otherwise expand their personal brand.
The results of your work and related outreach will be sent directly to recruiting contacts and hiring managers to help our Free Agents land their next role. You’ll work with a variety of client profiles to write compelling, customized copy that demonstrates their work experience and, importantly, tells a coherent story.
You should have familiarity with the tech industry and the roles that are common within it (product management, software engineering, performance marketing, ops, etc), as that familiarity will allow you to better write copy that sells a specific candidate’s story.

Things that you may want to know:
We enforce, enthusiastically, the Oxford comma.
Free Agency has a particular voice we’re looking to keep/evolve, and we’ll provide detailed feedback to help you find this voice quickly.
We have our tried-and-true resume format and style we strictly adhere to.
You should have familiarity with the tech industry and its related roles so that you can understand our Free Agents’ stories and why they fit particular roles/companies. Candidates with knowledge of both technical fields as well as writing are especially encouraged to apply.
This is a consistent, hourly position. We assign work daily and are looking for writers & freelancers open to that level of consistency. Hourly pay for this role starts at $25–38 per hour.
Why Free Agency matters:
Job search and career progression are broken. Candidates haphazardly apply to jobs, meet only a few companies, settle during offer negotiation, and generally don’t optimize the process of moving along in our careers. As a result, Free Agency believes that everyone is undercompensated.
That doesn’t just have to do with the money we make, but also the teams we’re a part of, the type of work we get to do, and the alignment to mission along the way. All of this has an impact on our own satisfaction, health, and financial wellness, but we don’t give it the attention it deserves.
By aligning incentives with individual talent, Free Agency is enabled to build first-of-their-kind products & services and define a new category of career management.
