What makes us different

An obsession with quality

At Pointed, we specialize in writing branded B2B tech content that makes complex topics fun to read.

Unlike content mills or high-volume agencies, we never use automation, AI or "churn and burn" hiring processes as part of our content creation process. We work with an exclusive roster of clients and team members so we can maintain a focus on quality.

Experience with best-of-breed SaaS

Our experience working on a deep level with a variety of best-in-category B2B SaaS brands gives us valuable breadth of perspective when adapting a brand's content execution to fit its growth strategy. We don’t tell brands how to grow, we just help them do it.

Women-owned

We are proudly women-owned and operated.

What makes you different

If you get genuinely hyped up when talking about things like SEO truth and fiction, the difference between 'farther' and 'further' and whether it's OK to start a sentence with 'and' or 'but', welcome home.

You're the kind of person who gets that freelance life isn't just about working in your damn pajamas. It's about passion, dedication and writing words that actually help people.

If either of the following statements makes you say 'Hell, yes!', you may have just found your tribe:

  1. You looove B2B writing and you're great at it—but juggling all the client stuff, it's just not for you. What you really want is steady work on your terms with a team of people who are actually fun to hang out with.
  2. You're sick and tired of working for soulless brands and questionable clients. You just want to do work that matters.

The B2B Copywriter is at the core of our mission at Pointed.

You're the person who makes it possible for us to consistently knock our clients' (and their clients'!) socks off by crafting super-relevant content B2B readers love.

In this role, you'll be expected to write mostly long-form articles (1,500-2,000 words) as well as ebooks, lead magnets and other formats using the highest content writing standards, including writing for SEO, conscious copywriting and writing that sounds both intelligent and human.

The writers who do best on our team tend to have a fun and engaging natural voice and an knack for knowing how to sound authoritative, without boring the reader.

Outcomes

  • Write high-quality content readers and clients LOVE
  • Submit content/copy that takes no more than 1 hour to edit
  • Never miss a deadline

Responsibilities

  • Research like a desktop detective, pinpointing the most relevant trends and giving proper accreditation to credible sources
  • Write content that cuts through the noise to clearly and directly support the one main message of each piece
  • Self-edit like a sober Hemingway to ensure voice, grammar and style are always on point
  • Be an advocate for the reader—always address their real-life fears and wants

The perks

Nothing against office workers, but at Pointed, we flatly reject the punch-clock promise. Here are some of the unconventional benefits you'll get when you work with us:

  • Set your own schedule. Our writers have worked from the beaches of Thailand to the streets of Venice, or the kitchen table in their Missouri two-story. No matter when or where you “clock in”, we want you to be able work from a place of inspiration (not burnout) and are ready to help make that happen.
  • No bull, no bureaucracy. “Because I said so” is never a reason. We openly share our edits and version history and will help you become the best writer you can be through direct, open feedback most people are too scared, busy, or lazy to deliver.
  • Supportive team. Yes, we're virtual. But we're also a team. We'll teach you everything we've learned from years of working for multi-million-dollar startups and Fortune 10 brands. Or if you just want to hang, you can pop into our monthly, zero-agenda team drop-in.
  • Make a difference. We don't work with just-in-it-for-the-buyout brands. Our clients actually care about how their services and products impact the world. We will never ask you to write for a brand that has questionable ethics (sorry, digital casinos and credit card companies).

Contract includes

  • 8 content assets per month ~1,500-2,000 words each / $1,500 per month
  • Messaging Library with pre-sourced stats, data, and messaging gems
  • Editorial assistant to support with research and outline
  • 1 one-on-one content sync per month
  • Monthly team drop-ins where you can kick back and talk shop (or just talk!) with other like-minded writers and marketers

Please do not apply if

  1. You’re not 110% comfortable writing about complex topics in conversational US and UK English. We know there are great writers all over the world, but if you aren’t an ace with US and UK English, this role will be a big waste of your time and energy.
  2. You’re really not that into B2B. If you hate research or just want to write a travel blog, you won’t enjoy this work.

Equality matters

We're committed to hiring people who add value to our team through different experiences and perspectives. Bottom line: equality matters.

And inclusion matters, too.

It's crucial that every member of the team feels comfortable enough to show up and be themselves. We stand in solidarity with people of color, people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQ community and all marginalized people. And we believe any brand that doesn't is simply missing the mark.

If you're a member of an underrepresented community and you know you'd be perfect for this role,
