The Content Factory is a growing content, PR and social media marketing firm in need of a content marketing assistant to help us meet the needs of our expanding list of clients. We’re a virtual agency with no physical offices, and this position requires that you work from home (or wherever there’s wifi).
To find out more about our company culture and why we all work remotely, check out this post by Kari DePhillips, TCF’s owner. This position will start out as freelance (1099-contract), and can move to a full-time employment opportunity.
If hired, you’ll join a team of 12 people spread out over 7 states – all working together to create killer case studies for some pretty cool companies. You’ll also be working for a CEO who “takes job perks to the max,” according to NBCNews. Our clients range from Astroglide to Fairtrade America to Zane Benefits, with a lot in between. You will not be bored here.
As a note, this position is only available to US citizens. Please do not apply if you do not meet this requirement, as we will not be able to hire you.
What You’ll Do
- Content marketing for TCF and clients using the Skyscraper Technique
- Put together PowerPoint presentations for webinars
- Graphic design for PDFs and social media images (if qualified, this isn’t necessary but would be nice)
- Upload blog posts to WordPress (and optimize them)
- Upload video content to YouTube (and optimize it)
- Research and build lists of influencers
- A lot of research work in general
- General online assistant work
- Bonus points for: graphic design, video/photo/audio editing
Most of our team is on EST, though we have a few employees on PST and Kari is currently based in Amsterdam (+6 EST). We’re a digital nomad-friendly company, and we don’t care where you’re based as long as you get your work in on time and can take conference calls as needed.
You’re going to learn a lot working here, and hopefully we can learn a thing or two from you as well! We have a very particular way of going about things, but we have step-by-step guides for it all and we can train the right candidate to do just about anything.
If all goes well, there’s also the opportunity to advance at the company – you could become a copywriter, PR rep or social media manager depending on your knowledge and expertise. Most of the people on the team have been here for years, and we have a very low turnover rate. Ideally, we’ll be working together for a long time!
What We’re Looking For
We need a reliable person who is comfortable working remotely and can consistently meet deadlines without a boss breathing down your neck about it. The person should be a team player, and be willing to pitch in and help on a variety of clients.
We’re producing more video and webinar content this year for TCF and Workationing, and we’re particularly interested in candidates who have experience creating webinar slides (working off of templates that are customized is fine).
This is a detail-oriented position, and the candidate needs to be a detail-oriented person – around here, we all are. Writing compelling emails, conveying a positive attitude through your email content, is a must.
Pay and How to Apply
To apply, please email email@example.com a cover letter detailing your experience and highlighting some of the work you’ve done (or been a part of). Also, why you want the job and think you’d be a good fit. Make sure to specify that you are a US citizen in your cover letter and what time zone you’re in.
We’re much more interested in a compelling cover letter than an extensive resume, so keep that in mind while you’re writing it. Again, extra points go to those who have design experience, particularly with webinar slides – examples are required if you cite this as an area of expertise.
We often receive hundreds of applications for our job postings, so we may not get back to you immediately but we will respond to all applicants – even if it’s with a no.
Pay starts at $15/hr, based on experience. Starts at 20 hrs per week, could go up to 40 depending on performance. Can be contract or employee-based, depending on a variety of factors. Pay is on the 1st and 15th of the month.
