Head of Content — Careers at Freemius

WE ARE HIRING

Head of Content ✏️

Freemius is a SaaS startup helping plugin & theme developers around the globe run their businesses with a platform to accept payments, manage subscriptions & software licensing, collect user-data, offer trials and (much) more. We are passionate about the open-source community and helping developers build prosperous, subscription-based businesses while working on projects they love!

During the past 4 years, we have managed to establish our blog as THE authority in everything related to the business side of WordPress plugins and themes. "Content is king" for us, and we are looking for a knight - a hands-on Head of Content that can work during European timezone hours.

Since the work is remote, trust and communication are essential requirements. We use Slack for day-to-day communications between team members and have weekly Skype meetings to catch up with each other.

We also have a weekly online team chess tournament - yes - we are those kind of geeks 🤓
