Overview

We’re searching for a writer with strong technical fluency and a sincere, enthusiastic tone to write emails to technical folks (software engineers, product managers, product designers, etc.). You must have prior experience with (or a strong interest in) software engineering — online coding courses, boot camps, building your own apps etc. count. Our customers are tech companies with a diverse set of products and technologies, so you’ll learn a ton about different technologies and parts of the software stack.

Since we’re still small and the emails you write comprise a core part of our business, you’ll work closely with the founders (you’ll have our cell phone numbers and can call at any time), and your feedback will have a significant impact on how we build the business
