Techstars seeks a talented writer and editor to join the Marketing team. This is a role for a writer and editor who loves language and is fascinated by technology and all the ways it is transforming our world. Bonus if you already have a toe in the startup ecosystem!
Please submit a cover letter and resume, plus two published clips (preferably related to entrepreneurship, tech, or business).
Duties and Responsibilities:
Write and edit creative, compelling stories about entrepreneurship around the world
Write and edit announcements, newsletter content, decks, web pages, press releases, etc.
Level up absolutely everything to do with language at Techstars
Passionate about writing and editing. You love storytelling, and you're great at finding the story in every situation and telling it in a compelling way. You take pride in your grammar (but you know when to break the rules in service to tone or style). You're always asking how we can make our writing better.
A wildly flexible writer. You can write a weekly column in the voice of our CEO, interview an entrepreneur and then channel that person, and you can handle writing and editing all the basics in a warm, clear voice as well—all while infusing every piece with the Techstars brand.
Fierce about deadlines & an amazing multitasker. Juggling multiple deadlines? No problem. Balancing short and long term projects? Sure. Capable of keeping yourself on task? Absolutely.
Wide open to being edited. Your ego is invested in the quality of the work we put out, not in the fact that you wrote it. We all need good editors: you take in all edits and comments and work with them. No prima donnas need apply.
A brilliant editor. Yeah, we do all need good editors—and we need you to edit us as well.
Thrives on change. Techstars is growing fast, and changing as it grows. This job will not be the same a year from now as it is on the day you begin.
A little bit knowledgeable about everything. That liberal arts education—or simply your own insatiable curiosity—comes in handy at last! We support startups in literally every industry. You need to be able to write intelligently about any of them, often doing the hard work of making complex technology intelligible and interesting to a general audience.
Ideally, already in startups and tech. If you already know the basics of entrepreneurship, that's fantastic. But we're willing to check out your skills if you haven't done this yet—just know that we're going to expect you to learn really, really fast.
Bachelor's degree in English, Communications, Writing, Journalism, or related (or equivalent time on the job)
Strong portfolio of publications demonstrating great writing and editing skills
3-5 years experience in a writing/editing/communications role
