JOB TYPE: Freelance, Contract Position (no agencies/C2C – see notes below)
LOCATION: Remote – Work from anywhere
HOURLY RANGE: Our client is looking to pay $60 – $90/hr
ESTIMATED DURATION: 5h/week – Long term
Our client is seeking a talented content writer to work with their team on a contract basis. They aim to increase their content production beyond the founders’ ability to write thought pieces, to distribute through social channels. You will be responsible for producing one piece of content per week in the format of a blog post. The topics will focus on data security, but will also include analysis of recent data breaches, details of product releases, and interesting news and technology related to security.
They are looking for someone who can write with an authoritative and succinct voice, specifically to avoid the hollow, “marketing speak” of content optimized for SEO or generated by AI. Their goal is to deliver value to customers, prospects and fans of their client through insightful, practical content. They like to deliver information with detail and humor.
