Content Marketer Writer


General Details

Hi - we, at Placeit have a need to hire 1 Content Marketer Writer.

We run a tool called Placeit used by hundreds of thousands of clients around the world. We serve over 2 million users world wide and we process a transaction every 2 minutes.

We also run several other products used by some 8 million people around the world but we’ll cover that later. We’ve just begun our expansion plans and would like you to be a part of it. We current have 208 people in our offices in Guadalajara but our Marketing team is fairly small (12 people).

Position title: Content Marketer

Reports to: Content Marketer Team Leader

Purpose: To create relevant articles and work closely together with other Content Marketing Specialists and SEO Specialists.

We started as an agency, called Freshout in 2008. We developed new products for companies such Yahoo, Telefonica, eBay. When we realized we couldn’t control the products we built through our clients, we started to invest in our own products. We bootstrapped our way to a product company in late 2014.

We’ve been profitable since the day we started so you don’t have to worry about us bleeding money and suddenly closing up shop because an investor pulled out.

All our staff including the CEO resides here in beautiful Guadalajara. We’ve been here for quite a few years and we don’t plan on leaving any time soon. We operate Placeit, Recordit and Empowerkit out of the same office.

This is not some satellite office where we send some of the “special” work. We invest heavily in the education and progress of each member of our team. We have full autonomy over what we build and there are no clients forcing our hand to build unnecessary features.

Placeit is used by everyone from Adobe to Yelp to Facebook to Google to Salesforce to IBM to Netflix. We’ve doubled in size over the past year and have thousands of paid subscribers.
