NOTE THIS IS A REMOTE OFFER - WE WILL ACCEPT WRITERS FROM ANYWHERE IN THE USA AND OUTSIDE THE USA (NATIVE-ENGLISH SPEAKERS ONLY).
Speedlancer.com, the world's fastest freelance marketplace, is looking for senior content writers (preferably with professional media or PR experience) to join our network of talented writers. Speedlancer works on a per-task basis. As a task comes in, it is sent to our network of writers.
Each writer in the network is free to review the task and decide if it suits them; if it does, they must 'compete' to accept the task before anyone else, as only one writer may deliver each task. Upon acceptance, the task must be delivered within 4 hours. Note that all work is done anonymously to the customer.
Payment is on a per-task basis. Customers are free to choose a price they feel is reasonable, and therefore our writers are not compelled to accept tasks that they do not feel is good value for their time and effort. However, payouts are typically USD $30-50 per 'standard' piece, which may be a 500 word blog post or 400 word press release, for example.
Note that we have a small but dedicated team of writers in our early stages of launch as a startup, and hence you can expect to have access to the tasks you want without being overwhelmed by competition. We are looking for reliable, talented writers, who have some extra capacity to try something new and accept tasks as they come in. Although you do not have to accept a task if you do not feel it is good value for your time and effort, there is an expectation that an effort is made to accept as many tasks are you are capable of doing as they come in.
Speedlancer was recently accepted into the acclaimed 500 Startups 'accelerator' program in San Francisco.
NB: Due to high volumes of applications we regret that we may not be able to respond to every application.
