We’re passionate about the English language; and we design software that helps writers and editors produce their very best work. Our product, PerfectIt, is the leading proofreading software for independent editors, proposal managers, medical writers, and publications teams.
We’re a profitable, ten-person company that works 100% remote. Our CEO is in New York, our developers are in the United Kingdom, and you can be anywhere in the UK (as long as you’re available for some evening work).
About the Role
As our employee number 11, you’ll cover a wide set of markets where we aim to grow PerfectIt, including translators, lawyers, technical writers, proposal writers, publishers, editors and more.
This is a product marketing role, but there’s much more to it than developing marketing assets. Growing new markets means making connections and forming partnerships. It’s not a sales role. But you must be good at relationship building.
In each sector, your responsibilities will include:
- Writing blog articles
- Writing and iterating on our drip feed
- Developing case studies
- Writing flyers
- Attending conferences
- Researching new markets
- Working with professional associations
- Building relationships with industry bloggers, trainers, and podcasters
- Supporting our sales and customer success teams
When we say that we’re passionate about language, we mean it! We’re looking for someone who has opinions on apostrophes and a stance on the Oxford Comma. You don’t need to have heard of prescriptivism to work here, but it helps!
We’re a small company and you need to be prepared to jump in where needed, whether that’s covering for technical support, taking on admin, or answering sales questions.
You will work directly with the CEO, so you must be self-motivating and able to get things done independently.
You must have experience in B2B SaaS marketing.
You’re independent, reliable and can work from home. You write well; and you are passionate about quality of document preparation. You probably studied English at university.
You’ll take the lead as we build our presence in new sectors. You’ll work directly with our CEO in prioritizing key markets and opportunities and how to build business in sectors you probably aren’t familiar with. You’ll support our Director of Growth, as well as the Sales, and Customer Success teams to ensure that everything we produce in a new sector truly speaks to the intended audience.
Why Work With Us?
Work That Makes a Difference
We help users focus on the parts of their job that matter. From medical writers working on the COVID-19 vaccine (yup) to editors helping novelists tell their stories, PerfectIt helps users to worry less about typos and spend more time on the meaningful part of their work.
We were 100% remote before it was cool! Intelligent Editing has no offices, so you should be equipped to work from home (anywhere in the UK).
Our biggest market is North America, so this position requires some evening work (typically a couple of evenings per week). All other hours are flexible. If you produce great work, we don’t care when you do it.
A Life Beyond Work
We believe in work-life balance. We’re sympathetic to the demands of parenting and welcome applications from experienced professionals from all backgrounds who need to work flexibly.
If You Love Learning...
We only hire outstanding candidates. And our team leaders are the ones you've always wanted to learn from. We mix real responsibility from your first day with a startup environment where anyone can make suggestions. It the perfect way to pick up and try out new skills.
LENGTH OF CONTRACT: Permanent (subject to a three-month trial).
