< See all openings This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to join a hypergrowth startup. ClickUp is an entirely content-led growth company, spending $0 on marketing and only growing from the viral nature of organic search and word of mouth. The product and our organic online presence have carried us from 0 to 100,000+ teams in under 2 years.

In all things we do, we hate normal — in fact, we will diligently avoid normalcy in all of our marketing assets, collateral, and messaging. We want to create unique, brilliant content that propels us as a thought and industry leader.

You will be in charge of creating stunning blog content experiences, improving the consistency of content across every communication channel, and bringing resources to life. You should be ready to get your hands dirty in SEO and the content that goes along with it. Your focus will often be on multiple blog posts at a time for SEO, branding, and ongoing user education while also providing relevant written documentation and content.

Our product is unique in the sense that it’s highly customizable - it can be used for use cases ranging from very simple to highly complex. We're looking for a candidate who is adaptable and understands how businesses operate. It will be your job to showcase the true value of our platform to any and all segments of visitors.

You will also be working with the success team in creating content for onboarding experiences, marketing automation emails, and landing pages that focus on how to get the most out of the platform. You should love creating written content experiences using your own unique voice that will allow for our brand’s voice to reach and resonate with any audience.
