TL;DR: We seek a curious, ambitious writer passionate about personal growth and psychology. This is a fully remote, freelance position. $25-40 / hour, depending on how skilled you are. If you experience simultaneous doubt and fantasies of excellence as you read this listing, go ahead and respond.
What’s the role?
We seek a curious, ambitious writer to help build our future. We’re looking for someone who’s passionate about not just writing and data, but about the intersection between personality psychology and personal, professional, and relationship growth. Excitement about broader psychology and personal development topics will go a long way as well.
The ideal candidate…
First and foremost is a writer.
You revel in taking raw information – statistics, comments, experience, and whatever else you can pull together – and translating it into something enjoyable to read. You can step into anyone’s shoes and tell their story better than they can, engaging unfamiliar mindsets with kindness, wonder, and wisdom.
Is an avid learner who is excited to improve their craft.
We don’t expect your work to be perfect – that’s impossible. But we do expect you to seek feedback, learn from peers, and get excited about improving wherever an opportunity exists. We expect a high level of critical thinking and time commitment to conceptualize, research, and write.
Has native-level English writing skills.
Your writing isn’t just grammatically excellent – it’s clear, insightful, informed, and engaging. You’re able to express and explain abstract concepts while relating to your audience on a human level.
Is willing to learn our framework inside and out – and then a whole lot more.
Our readers often come for a lark, leave with their lives changed. We take pride in that, and it’s all based on a theory that is accurate, reliable, and conveyed beautifully. Making our theory a lifestyle will support your writing. This is not just a job, but a way of thinking about the world.
Enjoys a (remote) team environment.
Your writing will be given (sometimes extensive) feedback that you’re expected to work with. We ask a lot and this is an intensive process. We are curious about what you have to say, kind yet honest in how we respond, very perfectionistic in our end products, and team oriented.
Works well with the company voice.
Informal and lively, yet rigorous and professional. We strive for a sense of good-natured knowledgeability and helpfulness without being stuffy or overbearing. By the way, make sure to mention unicorns somewhere, if you do decide to apply. This will help us filter out folks who didn’t actually read the role description.
Is reliable and consistent.
You can do your work anytime, anywhere in the world – but we expect regular communication and timely deliverables. Your team lead is based in the United States and is reasonably flexible about meeting you in your time zone for live discussions. We hope for flexibility on your part as well. Asynchronous communication is otherwise the norm.
What’s the pay?
Pay is between $25 and $40 per hour, depending on skill. Think your talent warrants more? Show us and we’ll talk.
How much experience do I need?
Whether fresh out of college or coming from a position of deep professional knowledge, we expect you to crave experience and growth more than to have it already. This is not a role where you stand still. If you’re skilled, eager to learn, ambitious, and genuinely enjoy writing, you’re a good candidate.
What’s the lifestyle?
NERIS Analytics is a relatively small, fully remote company with a flat-ish hierarchy. We act with curiosity, kindness, and ambition. We are perfectionistic. We are a team, and you will not be autonomous. Personal and professional growth is the norm. Sometimes projects will be assigned, sometimes you’ll be expected to take the lead. We don’t do calls, video or otherwise – all communication is written. You’ll work from anywhere you have a stable internet connection.
Sounds good! How do I apply?
If you’d like to apply, please send your resume / CV and a relevant sample of your work to email@example.com
. Please also mention your availability and preferred hourly rate.
You’ll work on a freelance (non-employee) basis, and the initial contract will be for three months, with a high likelihood of extension if everything goes well.
A few more notes:
- We are looking for an individual, not an agency.
- Please don’t apply if you don’t have verifiable, original work.
- Please don’t send chaser e-mails – we’re a small business and we can’t respond to everyone individually. We’ll get in touch if we think you’d be a good fit for us.
That should be it! Thanks, and we look forward to hearing from you.
