We’re looking for people with a passion for technology, business, data, and storytelling to join our team.

In this role, you will use your analytical and narrative abilities to take data from both Animalz customers and public sources and turn it into original, insightful, long-form content.

This role reports to a content strategist, who, along with your editor, will work closely with you to refine your pitches and transform them into fully-formed pieces of content.

  • You have knowledge of, or direct experience with, on-page SEO
  • You want to improve your writing by working closely with an editor
  • You are knowledgeable and curious about modern tech and business trends, such as direct-to-consumer retail, SaaS, and the consumerization of the enterprise
  • You have a background in B2B, SaaS, technology, VC, startups, or a related field
