Are you a passionate storyteller interested in crafting thought-leading content that has the ability to change lives?
Do you relish the challenge of cutting through the clutter with your words and grabbing the attention of busy readers, and keeping that attention until your closing line?
And do you have what it takes to thoroughly research complex health-based topics and deliver a concise, compelling write up to help our readers make an informed choice about their health?
If you’re nodding your head so far, keep reading. You could be our new Content Writer.
You’ll help us write blog posts, authority articles, email newsletters, and direct response copy to educate, drive traffic, and generate leads— and convert those leads into customers.
It’s a big challenge. But it’s an exciting one. And the challenge comes with ample opportunities.
The opportunity to work alongside and learn from a team of work-hard, play-hard professionals who’ve grown our company 10x in the last 5 years. The opportunity to advance your personal growth by attending conferences and VIP marketing events. And the opportunity to genuinely change people’s lives every single day. Here’s how…
AlgaeCal is an online nutritional supplement company, and one of Canada’s fastest growing companies. One of the reasons for that growth? We offer something no other company has: a natural, clinically-supported approach to osteoporosis. Bone scans show we are actually increasing bone density in adults across the world and we need help to spread the word. That’s where you come in!
We’re seeking a top writer who is sincerely keen on changing lives. And, a top writer who’s not afraid to delve into PubMed, scour the research journals and produce content that’s as captivating as it is educational.
We currently have a small team of writers who create all this content and we’re looking to add one more to our elite marketing team!
Our goal for 2020 is to reach more people than we did in 2019 with next level content. So we need consistently gripping, comprehensive copy to fulfill this vision. Are you in?
A Day In The Life
If you dread the sound of your alarm in the morning, you know you’re in the wrong job. But at AlgaeCal, waking up for work won’t be a problem...
Why? Because every day at AlgaeCal presents exciting challenges to test your skills. Every day brings opportunities to work with team members who care as much for you as they do our customers. And every day lets you have the chance to genuinely help people overcome osteoporosis.
Below are a few of the tasks you can look forward to working from our office in Vancouver’s Yaletown:
Working at AlgaeCal is stimulating, fast-paced, and rewarding. And just like any job, it can have its challenging moments. But one thing it will never be is boring.
What Kind Of Person Will Crush It In This Role?
On top of being a friendly, caring person, our writer needs to have some important skills to excel in this position. If the following sounds like you, please get in touch:
i) You know the difference between an em-dash and an en-dash; and when to use them!
ii) You understand the difference between active voice and passive voice.
iii) You can point out run-on sentences (like this one) when you see them because run-on sentences are a common problem in most writing that many writers don’t pick up on, and it makes it a real pain for their readers to understand what they’re trying to say when they write that way.
