Job Description

ZenBusiness is seeking a Senior Content Writer who will pen engaging short educational articles about starting your own business and the entrepreneurial life. Sitting within the product team, you’ll create short-form articles and video scripts that will appear in the mobile app and on the website. 

You’ll identify compelling topics, reach out to internal and external subject-matter experts, get the story, and crank out super awesome content in short order. You have a distinctive, cheeky voice that can transform dusty content into magnetic engagement fuel, and have a huge imagination (like, really huge) that can bring facts to life.  You’ll own the content production process, from ideation to production, and publication to performance. You’ll also review content metrics, and make adjustments accordingly. 

You’ll be working with a crack creative team of talented designers, developers, and product managers. We’re a start-up, so we’re building the plane as we’re flying it when it comes to processes. The ambiguity comes with the territory, so adaptability (with a dose of playfulness) is a must.

We’re creating something great here that could upend the industry. If this sounds like you, give us a shout. This position will report to Senior Director of Product and is a remote role.
