Title: Content Writer
Date Posted: 2017-05-18
Location: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

CrewFire is hiring a Content Writer (native English) to work directly with our Director of Marketing to execute and lead our content creation & copywriting efforts.

This is an opportunity to get in at the ground floor of an exciting, high-growth startup, starting on a per-word basis, with the potential to grow into management and leadership as we grow our content division.

About CrewFire

CrewFire is a word-of-mouth marketing platform for businesses.

With CrewFire, businesses can drive word-of-mouth and spark viral posts on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, by turning their audience (fans, customers, and employees) into social media brand advocates.

These advocates earn points for sharing brand-related content, which they can exchange for perks, rewards, commissions, and other incentives.

Just a year since launching, CrewFire has already helped our customers manage over 5,000 ambassadors, who've created over 65,000 social media posts, reaching over 9M+ impressions on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

We're 100% bootstrapped and profitable, with a small, tight team of 6 full-time team members, based mostly in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (though we work remotely).

Our mission is to help businesses grow, build a product that delights and delivers value for our customers, and build a company culture that's rewarding and enjoyable for our team.

Why You'll Love Working Here

Working at CrewFire is different than working at other companies. Here's why:

A sane work environment
We recognize the dark side of startup culture that glorifies stress, imbalance, and workaholism as absolute insanity. For us, starting a business doesn't have to be an insanely stressful endeavor.

Instead, we work at a comfortable, sustainable pace, because this business is a marathon, not a sprint. We're in it for the long haul.

Exceptional team members
We've grown our team slowly and mindfully, giving us the ability to hand-select only the best candidates for any role (hiring for this role will be no exception).

At CrewFire, you'll work alongside an exceptionally talented, humble, and fun group of young professionals, all top of their class in their respective fields (as you should be, too).

Proven leadership
CrewFire is founded and lead by two devilishly handsome and charismatic entrepreneurs, Alan VanToai, and Mike McCabe.

They launched their first product SimpleCrew together in 2012, and bootstrapped it to hundreds of thousands of dollars in annual revenue before building out the team and launching CrewFire in 2016.

Through this experience, Alan and Mike have developed into strong, effective leaders, and they're just getting started.

Personal and professional growth
We offer all of our team members the ability to learn, grow, and develop as executors, leaders, and people.

Our focus on on-the-job training, internal hiring, and career growth means our team members are constantly being challenged to become the best versions of themselves.

An exciting, challenging product
Our products are known and loved by hundreds of customers and thousands of team members around the world.

They solve unique marketing challenges, giving us the opportunity to work together to creatively build, design, and market the best product possible.
The Role: Content Writer

The Content Writer will have one primary objective: write content that educates, informs, and sells.

Our core marketing strategy will be built around different forms of written content. Thus, as our Content Writer, you will be responsible for the creation of:

- Blog Posts

- Guides & E-Books
- Guest Posts
- Lead Magnets & PDFs
- White Papers
- Case Studies
- Landing Pages
- Ad Copy

Your expected output will be 5,000-7,500 words per week.

Long-term, we're viewing this Content Writer as a prime candidate for promotion into management and leadership roles (Managing Editor, Content Director, Director of Marketing, or CMO).

Thus, we will be screening applicants for leadership and management potential as well as writing and content production abilities.
Who We're Looking For

You're organized, and are an enthusiastic self-learner and self-motivator, with (obviously) exceptional writing and communication abilities.

Our team works remotely, but most of us are located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

We would prefer to work someone in HCMC, but are open to working with candidates from around the world. If you're global/remote, we'll request at least 4-5 hours per week of overlapping work time with Vietnam so you can sync with our Director of Marketing to talk strategy, ideas, etc...
