Ever convinced a friend or colleague to buy a WordPress product just by using words? You might be perfect for this role.
We’re looking for an experienced and WordPress-savvy copywriter to help sell our products (and keep existing customers happy!) through persuasive and engaging copy.
You’ll be writing for one of the biggest brands in WordPress. All of our email lists combined total more than 1 million subscribers, and our social audiences total 100K+.

You don’t need to be a coding superstar, but you’ll need to know your way around WP and the types of products we offer.
If you don’t, you will struggle with this role…
This will either scare you or excite you… if it’s the latter, keep reading!
You’ll also have the luxury of writing about the amazing tools and plugins that make up our all-in-one WordPress platform. Our products cover everything from site management tools and hosting to WordPress plugins and client billing tools.
So don’t expect any day to be the same; you’ll always be writing about something new.
