Job Description

We are looking for a Junior Content Writer to join our team. Working primarily on content marketing, you will produce content based on the needs and requirements of e27 partners, clients, and sponsors.

The role involves conceptualising and crafting articles based on set objectives, conducting interviews with a wide variety of sources, and writing quality content pieces that balances the e27 voice with client requirements.

Creativity is a must! This means suggesting not only unique story angles, but one-of-a-kind approaches as to how to deliver interesting content.

Your job:

Create content marketing articles on a wide variety of topics related to tech and startups

Conceptualise article angles based on client objectives and target audience

Researching and organising facts and sources

Conducting interviews as necessary for creating articles

Collaborate with other departments to create innovative content ideas

Offer an opinion! Every now and then we want your thoughts. Things happen in the tech scene, and not all of it is good. If something excites, angers or saddens you, be willing and enthusiastic to write about it.

What we’re looking for:

A background in tech. Meaning a previous history of personal interest, employment, or nerd-level knowledge on tech happenings.

Individuals who are passionate about innovation, entrepreneurship, and technology

Learners. Articles to be written cover a wide range of topics and there needs to be an inclination for learning new things.

A love of reading. There is no such thing as a good writer who does not read.

High-level English-language writing skills. Do you have to be a perfect native speaker? No. But, there needs to be an ability to be clear, concise and clever.

Organised, with an ability to prioritise time-sensitive tasks

Digital design skills appreciated but not required

Perks:

Work in a startup atmosphere. This means a certain amount of flexibility, but also a higher expectation of performance.

Acquiring regional business and startup knowledge

Build relationships and make many connections that will be fruitful for many years to come.

Write,write,write,write,write. Are you serious about becoming a professional writer? This job will get you well on your way.
