Content Writer / Remote / Marketing / Contract
TL;DR: Fast-growing early-stage startup seeking experienced writers to help us distill complex, high-impact topics for a knowledgeable audience and tell the stories of some of the most ambitious people in the world. Details below - this role is completely remote.
About On Deck
On Deck is where ambitious people grow, together.
On Deck is where the world's top talent comes to connect. Whatever it is our fellows want to do next, our ever-growing community and action-oriented programming will help them get there—fast. If our fellows want to learn something new to up-level their career, launch and scale big ideas, or make lifelong friends, this is the place.
The content writer will work closely with our Content Lead, and Marketing team to produce in-depth, top-one-percent-quality content covering a vast range of topics, from Climate Tech, Angel Investing, and Education to Longevity.

Who you are:

  • You are a great writer and storyteller with an eye for detail and who can learn complex topics *fast.*
  • You have portfolio pieces that show experience with the above.
  • You are familiar with startups, technology, venture capital and its different sectors.
  • You are a proactive, effective communicator, and excited about working alongside a diverse, distributed team.

What you will do:

  • You'll research (and stay on top of) different trends, industries, and verticals.
  • You'll write content for one of our existing publications, our newsletters or new products. We'll match you with the work that best fits your particular skills and preferences as a writer.
  • While we don't have a word count requirement, most of our pieces fall between 2000 words and 5000 words.

Why you might be excited about us:

  • We’re tackling a big problem with even bigger potential. Participants in our existing Fellowships say great things about us.
  • You’ll be able to work remotely and (mostly) set your own schedule. On Deck was a remote-first team even before COVID, so we know what makes for a great remote environment.
  • You'll have a lot of flexibility in your role, and will be able to help define what our operations infrastructure looks like going forward.
  • We're backed by a who’s who of the biggest names in the venture investing world, including Founders Fund, Village Global, Keith Rabois, Balaji Srinivasan, Bloomberg Beta, and so many more. ( Read more about our Series A in this memo)

Why you might * not* be excited about us:

  • We're still a fairly small team with about 250 people (company-wide), so if you like more established companies, this role isn’t for you. You'll help create our company's culture.
  • We're an early-stage startup. Projects and priorities are likely to shift.
  • Everyone on the team is extremely mission-driven and works incredibly hard to push towards our lofty ambitions. Most people won’t be cut out for it.
  • You should be comfortable with just a dash of chaos. This is not the kind of job where you show up and we tell you exactly what to do every day.
  • On Deck is an unabashedly pro-startup, pro-tech organization. If that’s not your thing, this isn’t the place for you.

Compensation

  • This is not an hourly job. Instead, we pay a flat rate per article. The rate varies depending on the type of content you write for us, its complexity, and length.
  • We're looking for long-term relationships with writers.
  • You can write as much or as little as you wish. Some writers choose to write 1 article per month for us, while others do enough to equate to a full work week.
Location
Our entire team works remotely, and we are excited about candidates globally.
You would start as soon as possible.
Equal Opportunity Employer
On Deck is an equal opportunity employer dedicated to building an inclusive and diverse workforce. All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, merit, and business need. We strongly encourage applications who are members of underrepresented communities to apply.
If you were to join On Deck, we'd want you to love it. We also know that it can be hard to tell from the outside looking in whether that would be the case for you. So, we challenged ourselves to develop an honest set of reasons someone wouldn't want to join our company. We hope it helps you make an informed decision about whether On Deck is a place you'd love to work. In summary, On Deck may not be the place for you if:
• Another company's mission gets you way more fired up.
• You want a 9-5 job.
• You do your best work in highly-structured, steady-paced, and meticulously-planned environments.
• You like finding and poking holes more than you like filling them.
• You see differences as divisions
You believe that something has to be exclusive for it to be cool
You can read the details of why On Deck may not be the company for you on our Non-Values page.
