Our user-base is growing fast, and so is the team around it.

Your role
  • Suggest and create appealing content for all our channels (videos, blog posts, citation guides, social media, newsletters,..) targeting our audience
  • Communicate with our editors, writers and designers on a regular basis to plan, create and maintain content
  • Review and edit drafts of content from other writers and editors
  • Create SEO optimized content, measure the success and adjust and improve content if necessary to help it rank better




  • A university degree (any background is welcome as our product is for academics from all fields)
  • Excellent written and verbal skills
  • 3+ years of experience in content writing, ideally in SaaS or academic environments, with a proven record of content that had a measurable impact
  • An understanding of SEO best practices and ability to create SEO optimized content
  • Ability to work autonomously in a startup environment and with a distributed team
  • Native English speakers are preferred, but your application will also be considered if you have studied in English (any degree that was fully taught in English) and can demonstrate outstanding English skills
  • Optional: Experience in video content marketing or video production (Screenflow, AfterEffects)
