Do you love writing?
Do you live to nail the perfect phrase, and find the exact right words?
Are you tired of the content/copywriter grind, and want to be part of something bigger?
If this sounds like you, we've got your perfect career.
We’re hiring a content/copywriter.
But this isn’t a normal role. We’re already a writing company. People literally pay us to write books for them. So why do we need to hire a content/copywriter?
You’re a writer, you can probably guess why...writing a book is totally different than writing blog posts and other forms of copy.
There are very few writers who are good at both, and as a company, we have a ton of great book writers--but no great copywriters.
You have the potential to change that. If you’re fantastic at this type of writing, we want to talk:
We’re open to people from all ranges of experience, working from any place on earth. All that matters is that you are really good at short form content and copy.
We won’t spend a ton of time talking about what the role requires, because we can easily test each other. The way we’ll test each other is simple: we’ll agree on a progressing series of test projects (like blog posts or the like), you will do them, and then we’ll both decide whether we want to move forward. Pretty simple.
Yes, the role starts as freelance--but the goal is for you to come on as a full tribe member. We have so much content and copy to write that we can fill your schedule up very quickly.
And another cool thing about this role--you don’t just report to some CMO who can barely write a coherent sentence.
You’re going to work directly with 4x New York Times Bestselling Author, and co-founder of Scribe, Tucker Max. He’ll help you edit and refine all of your writing until you nail the company voice.
And note: he currently writes much of the content. The goal is for you to take this off his plate (and ideally, to do a better job than him).
If you can nail that, you're probably pretty awesome, which brings us to an important question:
We’re Scribe Media, and we help people turn their ideas into books.
Book writing is, for most people, a painful and difficult process, loaded with uncertainty and aggravation. Our goal is to make it as simple as possible, so that as many people as possible can write books.
We do this a few different ways. We’ve written a book that details our process that people can follow on their own, or they can follow a structured process with our guidance (we call this Scribe Guided Author), or they can use the same process, except instead of having to type their book out, we put them through a structured interview process that gets the book out of them in their words and their voice. This describes that process pretty well.
You can see some press about us here.
You can see some of the impact we've had on authors in these stories.
And you can see some of the books we've already published here.
Our company was started because a frustrated entrepreneur wanted to put all of her incredible knowledge and ideas into a book, but didn't have the time to write it or the patience to deal with the frustrating publishing process. So we solved her problem. The origin story is here.
Her book became an amazing success, and we realized the world was full of these people--smart people who should write a book, but don’t, because the process is needlessly hard.
These people want to write books, but don't have the time or desire to do it the old way, and that's why Scribe exists: we help smart people turn their ideas and knowledge into books that help the world.
Our process has worked for almost 1000 authors in four years, and we’re growing fast. Our ultimate goal is to be the default publishing option for professionals. If we do that, we'll help create thousands of books that would never have otherwise existed, changing the lives of millions of people.That's really exciting to us.
But if you really want to see why we do this...just watch this video of an author we worked with, Philip McKernan.
We're not going to try to pitch you a load of corporate doublespeak bullshit about how great we are.
Instead, we’re just going to show you proof.
These are all real tribe members, speaking openly and honestly about all aspects of what it's like to be part of this tribe:

Also, Entrepreneur Magazine said we have the #1 company culture in America.
