Responsibilities

We’re all here to support and help each other, but you need to be able to work independently. Here are some of the things that you’ll be up to:

  • Write and edit copy across channels — social, product, web — to build a compelling, cohesive narrative

  • Think holistically about the user experience to ensure people get the right information, at the right time, in the right way

  • Collaborate with the Head of Content to develop and improve on content guidelines, templates, tools, and processes 

  • Identify needs and opportunities to build out systems and frameworks that ensure language is consistent

  • Collaborate with Media, Product, and Community teams to support their content needs and provide creative, strategic, and on-brand solutions

Qualifications

College degrees and certifications, numbers of years of experience, and prestigious accolades are not required. General life experience, expertise in your area, curiosity, and generosity with skills and knowledge are more important. 

We’d love to hear about your experience:

  • Writing and editing short- and longer-form things that people want to read

  • Using brand guidelines and other tools to create a cohesive language and story

  • Translating dense, technical information and jargon into plain English 

  • Applying both qualitative and quantitative data to better understand your audience and make copy decisions accordingly

  • Building alignment as you collaborate with cross-functional teams

Benefits

Doing meaningful work shouldn’t come at the expense of building a meaningful life. At Matter, this means:

  • Four-day work week: Monday through Thursday

  • 20 vacation days of your choice, plus the last week in December off

  • Remote-first work environment

  • 100% company funded, premium healthcare coverage for you and your dependents

To apply

Even though we’re all pretty experienced, we all learn something new almost every day. It may be about neuroscience, design, or technology. Or it may be about something else entirely. We’ll be excited to learn from you, too. 

If you’re interested in this role, please send all of the following to jobs@matter.xyz:

  • Resume (or LinkedIn profile)

  • Cover letter — let us know why you’re the right person for this role

  • Writing samples — include 3 short-form (e.g. social, marketing/ad, or product copy) and 2 long-form (e.g. email newsletters, articles, or blog posts) examples of your best work

Please note because we’re a small team and have consistently experienced a high volume of applications, we will not consider incomplete applications. 

But, how you share your writing samples does not need to be fancy. Send us links, screenshots, PDFs, whathaveyou, or any combination of such. It’s your writing that matters to us, not how it looks. 

Thanks for your interest and understanding! We look forward to hearing from you.
