About Writer
Great writing for everyone. That's our vision.
We're filling a big need for a writing assistant that's built ground-up for the needs of professional users and teams. Writing really is the last unstructured business process. Our roadmap is an exciting combination of deepening functionality for team leaders and extending functionality for end users - helping them be more effective and efficient in their writing.
Traction and backing
Our customers include Twitter, Intuit, UiPath, Pinterest, and InVision. It's a great community of writers, content strategists, copyeditors, and editorial leaders. They are a true community and the content vanguard. We have a NRR of +130% and we're just getting started.
Our funnel is large and growing fast (2M visitors/month, thousands of weekly trial starts). This is important, as you'll have nearly instant feedback on the features you'll be building or the growth experiments you'll be running.
We're backed by the best funds in the game and a world-class group of founders, operators, and angels. We raised our $21M Series A led by Insight Partners & Gradient Ventures (Google's VC firm)
Why it's the perfect time to join
We're 50 people. There's a lot of room to contribute and grow an enduring SaaS company. You will have unquestionably made it happen.
We have strong product market fit. We have strong DAUs and deep usage. People spend hours using Writer. The work you'll do will have a direct impact on some of the top companies in the world - as well as users who depend on us to sharpen their writing.
Build it, nail it, scale it. We're at 'nail it.' If you like helping turn dirt paths into smooth roads, now is the perfect time to join. We've grown 5x and are running fast towards aggressive - and achievable - milestones.
We are seeking an outgoing and detail-oriented Contract Recruiter to help us build on our off-the-charts talent density, while maintaining a best-in-class candidate experience. This is the perfect chance to expand your skills in a role that will develop your knowledge of corporate and technical recruitment for fast growing start-ups. This is a short-term position with the opportunity to become a full-time role at the end of the contract. You'll learn quickly and have a lot of responsibility from the start.
About this role
You'll be the first-in-seat recruiter in a contract-to-hire capacity - you can drive candidate generation and hiring manager relationships, possess strong verbal and written communication skills, have an ability to prioritize business needs and a sense of urgency, and understand the value of providing an amazing candidate experience.
This is a perfect role for someone who's seen great before but wants to build it better - from the ground up. You'll be a growth-multiplier for the business - your impact will be seen across the company.
This role has both executive sponsorship and an absence of legacy architecture or processes. This will allow you to move fast and be creative in finding solutions. You'll find the speed in which we operate to be highly-responsive and energizing.
You'll be reporting to the Head of People whose primary focus will be to build a people and talent strategy that'll both support and fuel product-led growth. You'll be a thought partner and consultant for talent strategy.

Is this you?
  • A jack-of-all-trades-you can parachute in and fill roles across all levels, all teams. You attract the best of the best, raising the bar with each new hire.
  • A culture carrier-you embody the best of our company values (Connect, Challenge, Own) and seek the same in every potential new hire

  • Knowledgeable about the job market and can be consulted about external hiring trends and recruitment tactics
  • Business acumen that allows you to connect with stakeholders and translate their needs into people solutions

  • Employer-covered medical plans, dental, vision, and life insurance
