Job Responsibilities : Content Writer (Remote/Work from Anywhere)
Salary : Competitive Salary
Company : Hummingbird
Hummingbird is a remote-first, fully distributed team united by the shared mission of helping fight financial crime. Since our launch in 2017, we’ve helped major financial institutions and tech-savvy trailblazers alike (e.g. Stripe, Affirm, Blockchain.com, etc.) orchestrate their compliance programs through our thoughtfully designed, intuitive SaaS product. We believe finding and stopping financial crime is a problem rooted in code, language and design, so we built the product that the heroes doing this work deserve.
We are customer-obsessed, and we love building and shipping great products. We set a high bar, challenge our assumptions, seek diverse opinions, and support each other to do our best work.
We do our best to write inclusive, descriptive and accurate job descriptions, but we’re not always perfect. If you’re interested in the role, we’d love to hear from you even if you don’t feel like you meet everything we’re looking for. We’re always iterating and improving, and it’s possible that your experience is even more impactful than we could have imagined!
About the Role
Hummingbird is looking for a thoughtful, creative content writer to join our growing marketing team! The person filling this role will produce written content in a variety of formats, partnering closely with other members of the marketing team to develop clear, strategic, and effective copy that helps build the Hummingbird brand.
What you’re looking to do:
Satisfy your curiosity. You like to learn, and don’t shy away from complex topics. In fact, transforming something complicated into something easily understood is a big part of what you do.
Write. (And then write some more.) You love putting words on paper. Writing is your craft skill, and you believe there’s something magical about turning good thinking into great writing.
Work on something meaningful. You want to write about things that matter. While you might not be an anti-money laundering whiz just yet, you’re excited by the idea of working for a mission-driven company and helping prevent financial crime.
What we’re looking for:
An exceptional communicator. A writer who knows that it’s clarity and concision > everything else. We’re looking for someone who naturally tailors their writing to both audience and channel.
An empathetic creative partner. You know how to get the best out of SMEs in order to produce A+ written content. You’re also an effective ghostwriter, able to match the voice and tone of others.
A sense of humor! Our industry is complicated, but it shouldn’t be boring and dull. We’re keen to find someone who can help bring a bit of levity to the world of compliance.
Strong research and critical thinking skills. You do your homework, and know the path to great writing is paved with preparation, organization, and persistence.
Enterprise Software as a Service (SaaS) experience – or really tech B2B experience in general – is a plus but not a requirement.
