Content Writer

Remote London, Greater London, England, United Kingdom

Description

🚀 Full-time, permanent

🎓 Content team

📍 Hybrid; central London HQ


✨ If the future of work has radically changed, why hasn’t our approach to education?

Backed by some of the world's leading tech investors and operators (incl. the folks who helped scale lastminute.comMADE.com, Degreed, Coursera, Calm, Netflix & YouTube), we're on a mission to build the world's first on-demand business school. One that's been radically reimagined, especially for startupland.

As we build out our founding team, we're looking for an all-star Content Writer to join us on that mission.


Are you a natural storyteller who would relish the opportunity to build a delightful and impactful curriculum within a beautiful mobile app experience that has the potential to be in the pockets of millions of future learners?

If so, this might just be the adventure for you...🚀


ABOUT US.

We believe there’s a new breed of modern professionals building the businesses that will shape our future. They live in startupland and are passionate about harnessing new technologies to build a better world.

However, even the most motivated individuals face 3 major obstacles in their pursuit of accelerated professional growth:

— Lack of time

— Lack of guidance

— Choice overload

Inspired by what Duolingo has done for language learning, Headspace has done for mindfulness, Peloton has done for fitness, we're on a mission to build the ultimate lifelong learning companion for “startup joiners” around the world.

Framework is a lifelong campus that defies borders and lives in your pocket. One that grows with you from Seed to IPO, giving you the on-demand knowledge and networks to help you soar to new heights in your career and scale companies that history will remember. ✨

ABOUT OUR FOUNDERS.

We’re a cross-functional team of startup operators and lifelong learners.

👋🏾 Meet Asha, our resident CRO — a computer scientist-turned-Harvard MBA; a multi-talented polymath who’s held leadership roles across tech, product, people, marketing & sales.

👋🏼 Meet Riya, our resident CPO — an investor-turned-startup operator; a data-driven product obsessive, who loves creating 11* user experiences.

👋🏻 Meet Tomos, our resident CTO — a deeply seasoned edtech CTO, who’s built personalised learning study apps with over 1.5 million downloads and record engagement.

🙌 Finally, we have a fourth “co-founder” in Founders Forum, a global network of the world's most successful tech entrepreneurs. This gives us unparalleled access to the insights from the operators behind companies like Monzo, Slack, Supercell, Asana, Lendable, MADE.com, Calm, DeepMind, Zoom and hundreds more.

Before Framework, we launched Founders Academy, a super successful zero-tuition 9-month "alternative-MBA" co-created with London's fastest growing tech scaleups (incl. Depop, Koru Kids, Ada Health, Memrise and more). We worked closely with 100+ operators across product, growth, ops, people, data, engineering & design to pioneer a world-leading curriculum spanning the fundamental business, technology and human literacies required to thrive in startupland. Our first cohort graduated with 100% job placement & 70+ NPS.

Framework is the result of us 10X’ing our level of ambition. We’ve productised our unique insights from Founders Academy into a mobile-first social learning experience, so that we can serve a new generation of modern business leaders across the globe. 🌎

We’re only at the very start of the adventure. This is where you come in...


ABOUT THE ROLE.

As one of our first in-house writers, you'll be a key pillar of our early team as we emerge from private beta, and bring Framework to market in Q1 next year.

Your mission will be to:

  • Work closely with our founding team to develop content for the first public version of our mobile app, with the goal of it being loved and used daily by 5K+ Founding Members, in <6 months.

This will involve:

  • Researching top Frameworks (tools, playbooks, methodologies) to help our members address their everyday challenges.
  • Interviewing faculty members to gather fresh, actionable insights.
  • Writing and synthesising Frameworks into short, bite-sized, swipe-able content formats.
  • Creating content that takes our members on a learning journey, testing their mastery along the way.
  • Creating design briefs/guidance for our illustrators/animators to bring the Framework content to life.
  • Generating content ideas and contributing to our curriculum roadmap.

You’ll have knocked our socks off in 6 months if:

  • You know how to create Frameworks that deliver the goods!
  • You’ve powered through developing our launch curriculum, helping us build a comprehensive content library.
  • Our members are sharing our content, saying “Wow! This totally changed the way I solved X problem.”
  • Our faculty are sharing our content, saying “Wow! Thanks for making me look so smart.


ABOUT YOU.

You’ll likely have the following skillsets:

  • You are an exceptional written and visual communicator. Writing is your thing!
  • You have a keen eye for detail and accuracy, excellent grammar, editorial skills, and judgement.
  • You can transform any content to make it engaging, useful, and easy to digest.

You’ll likely have the following mindsets:

  • You are a “Framework thinker” — you love playbooks, models, methodologies; it’s how you think.
  • You are an insatiably curious learner and love to read.

You’ll likely have the following experiences:

  • You’ve spent quality time in and around high-growth tech startups or scaleups.
  • You have experience creating content for digital platforms/products.
  • You have experience working with brand, messaging, and tone of voice guidelines.


N.B.: We’re big believers in shaping roles around people, rather than the other way round. So if you’re passionate about our mission, and think this sounds “close enough” to your dream role, please apply and we’ll look forward to shaping the role together.


HOW WE INTERVIEW.

We believe magic happens when there's strong mutual alignment. That's why we treat the interview process as a two-way conversation. We'll always aim to get back to you quickly and can move as fast as you can. Here's a basic outline of our 3-step process:

  • Step 1—Initial Interviews: You'll meet 1 or 2 of our co-founders where you'll have the opportunity to ask about the company and the role. We'll ask you questions about your skills, experiences, motivations and goals.
  • Step 2—Role Simulation: You'll be asked to complete a short, job-specific assignment that'll give you a good taster of the kind of things you'll be working on in your first 3 months. We'll aim to feature some direct contribution to the creation of our product. You'll be compensated with a £50 Amazon voucher for completing the assignment because we know your time is valuable.
  • Step 3—Final Workshop: You'll meet our co-founders again along with a couple of others in the team to talk through your assignment as part of a working session. This is a chance for us to mutually test drive what it'd be like to work together. As always, you'll have a chance to ask us questions.

  2. You'll be part of the founding team of a VC-backed startup with the ambition and platform to build a truly innovative product that will be used by millions of learners around the world.
  3. You will get the unique opportunity to bring a highly-anticipated edtech product to market. ✨
  4. We are at a hugely exciting phase of growth as we gear up for a Q1 public launch, having run a super successful beta. As one of our early content hires, you will play a huge role in shaping our curriculum from here.

  6. We are co-located with our sister businesses across the Founders Forum Family—a vibrant ecosystem committed to supporting entrepreneurs and innovators at every stage of their journey.
