  • Contract
  • $50k-$75k/mo

Content Writing
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.
You’ll work with a variety of client profiles to write compelling, customized copy that demonstrates their potential fit to a particular job, tech company, or startup. 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 into different companies.
You will:
  • Craft and customize emails that are part of marketing our clients to particular companies
  • Write and edit long-form content related to startups and technology
  • Receive and integrate raw feedback on your writing style and content
You might be good for this role if other job titles you're looking at include:
  • Content Creator/Manager
  • Technology Writer or Editor
  • Copywriter
  • Other tech professional (PM, engineer, marketer, etc.) looking for consistent part-time work
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.
  • 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. Depending on your prior experience, pay for this role ranges from 40 an 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.
