Blog Content Report Writer (Remote, Contract)
About Exploding Topics
Exploding Topics is a fast-growing media company that helps people find trending topics before they take off.
Most people first discover us through our Exploding Topics discovery tool.
But we’re probably best known for our flagship weekly newsletter, Exploding Topics Tuesday. Forward-thinking companies like Slack, Apple, Casper, and Shopify read our newsletter each week to see what’s coming around the corner.
We’re looking for a writer to produce research-focused reports for our blog:
We call these “reports” because they’re not your typical blog posts. Most blog posts contain fluff, filler and needless background information.
Instead, our reports are crisp, concise and data-driven.
What’s In It For You
-Be part of a fast-growing internet startup.
-Learn about emerging trends in fitness, fashion, tech and more. Before anyone else.
-Improve and refine your writing and research skills.
-Publish content that gets read by top people at Slack, Apple, Andreessen Horowitz, Casper and other leading brands.
What You’ll Do
- In depth research of trends. 75%+ of this position is research.
- Tying together specific trends with larger trends.
- Outline, write, edit and incredibly dense reports.
What You’ll Bring
- Knack for fluff-free crisp writing.
- Coachability and willingness to improve.
- Willingness to go down the rabbit hole to research new fields and industries.
- Upbeat “let’s do this!” startup attitude.
This job posting is for a test project: a single writing sample (approx 150-200 words) for $25.
We will give you a single trend. And you'll research and write about it.
If the test project goes well, we'll hire you to regularly contribute reports for our blog.
I look forward to working with you.
