Headquarters: Remote URL: decentraland.org

We are looking for a versatile writer to join our Content and Marketing team to help write Decentraland’s blog posts, product announcements, press releases, and documentation. We are at the forefront of WebVR and blockchain technology: our foundation in this cutting-edge, developing technology requires that we provide our users with the clearest and most accessible content possible.

We are seeking a writer with previous experience writing marketing and technical content for a developer audience. However, our ideal candidate will possess a general writing skill set and the ability to adapt their tone and style to fit a wide range of genres and audiences -- all while staying true to Decentraland’s image as a brand and organization. The ability to perform independent research, interview subject matter experts, and write collaboratively with other content contributors are all equally critical to success in this role.

Responsibilities:

  • Work with the content and marketing teams to write weekly blog posts and newsletters describing the Decentraland team’s most recent developments.
  • Write blog posts covering a range of topics related to the Decentraland platform. This could include WebVR development, Ethereum, user experience and design in virtual reality, blockchain-based cryptography and security, cryptocurrencies, and blockchain-based gaming.
  • Help with the creation of technical and non-technical documentation, like tutorials for our developer tools, FAQs, and technical reference documentation for our API.
  • Help with the creation of marketing content for publication across each of our social media channels.

Minimum Requirements:

  • Fluency in English with excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • A working knowledge of blockchain technology and the Ethereum ecosystem
  • A desire to work with a distributed, fast-moving team!

Recommended Qualifications:

  • A voracious attention to detail and meticulous writing and editing skills
  • Experience writing technical documentation for a developer audience
  • Experience writing on a content marketing team
  • Strong familiarity with the communities surrounding Ethereum, cryptocurrencies, and crypto-collectibles
  • Experience and comfort working on a distributed team
