Sourceress seeks a writer with strong technical fluency and a sincere, conversational tone to write emails to technical entities.
We are called Sourceress and we’re accelerating human progress by making it easier for tech companies to build great teams. We’re searching for a writer with strong technical fluency and a sincere, conversational tone to write emails to technical folks (software engineers, product managers, product designers, etc.).
You should have prior experience with (or a strong interest in) software engineering — online coding courses count, and so do bootcamps, building your own apps, etc. Our customers are tech companies with a diverse set of products and technologies (including self-driving cars and robotic life science labs!), so you’ll learn a ton about different technologies and parts of the software stack.
We’re still small, so you’ll have a lot of autonomy and you’ll need a lot of initiative + a strong ability to self-manage. We’re looking for someone who can work 30-40 hours per week on a contract basis. Our headquarters are in San Francisco, but we have team members all over the globe.
This job might be for you if…
You love learning about people
You’re the type of person who enjoys and can make effortless conversation with an interesting stranger
You want to become a software engineer, or are looking to learn more about the engineering world
Your friends and colleagues describe you as extremely detail-oriented and proactive
You jibe with our values: https://www.sourceress.com/jobs
If this sounds up your alley, please include in your cover letter:
A description of your prior experience (if any) with programming languages/libraries/frameworks/etc. Include courses you’ve taken, things you’ve built, or even just things you’ve read.
Why you think you would enjoy this job.
Your three favorite books, along with what you default to reading about.
Please note that this is a #remote contract position. The hourly base rate is $18 per hour once you graduate from on-boarding (which usually takes about two weeks) and $15 per hour until then. Once past on-boarding, you’ll also be eligible for additional productivity pay of $0.01-5.00 per writing hour plus quality bonuses.
