Company: Software Advice
Position:
Researchers/Content Writers
Location:
Austin, Texas
Job Status:  Full-time
Salary:  Negotiable
Website: http://www.softwareadvice.com/careers

Description:

Software Advice headquartered in Austin, Texas where we employ a team of 100 (and growing). We've also got an engineering team in Cordoba, Argentina. We've been named one of the fastest growing companies in the United States and the second-fastest in Austin. We don't intend to stop there.

We're looking for exceptional writers and researchers to join our Content Savant team and contribute top-notch content to our website and blogs.  This is a full-time, in-house role.  

 
We're looking for someone who:
  • Writes really well. We didn't use the word savant for nothin'. We're looking for experienced researchers and writers here; just speaking English isn't enough.
  • Is a bit of a smarty pants. You can quickly grasp complex or foreign topics - especially in business and technology - and then communicate them clearly.
  • Is crazy organized and efficient. You can juggle multiple editorial and content projects without breaking a sweat.
  • Is tech and web savvy. We're not looking for engineers here, but but we find people who are clever searching and navigating the web do best.
 
What you'll do all day:
  • Research new topics online. You probably won't be an expert in our markets on day one, but you can Google your way to expertise in a flash.
  • Interview the experts. To research a content project, you've gotta go straight to the source and talk to an expert. You're not afraid to pick up the phone.
  • Generate quality content. You'll write articles, develop surveys and research reports, and maybe dabble in the production of infographics or videos.
 
You'll be measured on how well you:
  • Create great content. Our best performers can write two really strong pieces of content a week and write in a way that delights our audience.
  • Meet deadlines. We generate a lot of content, so we'll need you to finish assignments on time to keep those editorial trains rolling.
  • Feed the editorial calendar. You'll offer creative content ideas and work with our Content Editors to make sure our content is always top notch.
 
A few reasons why you might hate it:
  • You're not interested in business. Writing about software and business is a bit drier than, say, writing about food, fashion or the NFL.
  • Constructive criticism destroys you. We strive for top-quality content, and sometimes we have to rip it apart before we can rebuild it.
  • You want a mellow environment. We'll admit it: we're pretty intense.  We like to work hard and GSD (that's Get Stuff Done). It's not for everyone.
 
And a few reasons why you might love it:
  • You'll grow and learn a ton. You'll become a better business person as you immerse yourself in the world of technology and entrepreneurship.
  • The work environment is amazing. Our SoCo office is insanely cool, open, and inviting. We dress casually and have fun while working hard.
  • The team is even more amazing. You will work with people who are as energetic, smart, and driven as you are. You'll be managed by the best too.
  • You'll get paid (well) to do what you love. We like to think we pay well. Most of the writers we bring on board earn much more than they did in past jobs.
