Weekend Writer (Remote)

LAUNCH Ticker, Remote, California

Date PostedJuly 02, 2018
Job StatusFreelance
Salary$16 per hour

The LAUNCH Ticker is an email newsletter that summarizes significant and fascinating news items regarding startups, tech, VC, angel investing, and broader topics that are representative of technology's power to change the world. 

Our readership includes company founders, investors, and people who aspire to do great things through innovation and disruption. Our goal is to keep intelligent and connected people informed, taking as little of their time as possible. 

We are looking for a remote weekend writer who has some availability through the week. The hours are somewhat flexible. We are seeking a commitment of 15 to 20 hours per week.

The position requires four or five hours on Saturday and four or five hours on Sunday. Our weekend Tickers go out at 4 pm PT. The hours of work are inconsequential. The deadline matters.

The weekend writer will eventually handle several projects during the week, including two video transcription emails, which take up to three hours each. 

We also send out a "Top 20 Stories of the Week" email, and the weekend writer will have the option of taking it over. It goes out Saturday morning. Creation can occur on Friday night or early Saturday (does not count toward the four or five hours required for the Saturday Ticker).

It's crucial that the hours fit your schedule and goals. 

This contract position starts at $16 per hour. 
The right person is likely to find additional opportunities within the company.
