Description

App Academy is building world-class training programs that help students from all backgrounds transition into careers in tech. Our core offering is a 12-week immersive coding and job search program that trains full-stack web developers. In 2017, we were named one of the top coding bootcamps in the world. We have been profiled in The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and Bloomberg as a driving force behind the changing face of tech education in America. Our unique model -- we defer tuition until our students graduate and secure jobs afterwards -- aligns us with the success of our students. Join us on our mission to empower people to transform their lives.

About the Role

We're currently looking for part-time writers who can produce viral content with a quick turnaround across all of our verticals (tech news, startups, lifestyle tech, entrepreneurship, career growth and more). You know how to write about new innovations in a relatable tone, and love the challenge of explaining Raspberry Pi to someone who thinks it's edible. If you're obsessed with writing about any of the above, have a flexible schedule, and can turn around clean, witty, clickable copy on a tight deadline, drop us a line!

Responsibilities

- Write 10-15 tech articles for App Academy each week
- Meet daily deadlines set by your editor
- Can hit same-day deadlines when needed
- Research and pitch content ideas on a weekly basis

Experience and Qualifications

- Experience working freelance and meeting deadlines
- You write quickly, accurately, and with a fun personal tone
- You are a grammar and copywriting ninja
- You are happy working independently

Our Values

- Take responsibility for student success. Everyone works together to enable student success.
- Follow the numbers. Decisions should be backed by data.
- Embrace a growth mindset. View challenges and failures as opportunities to improve.
- Start with why. See the big picture and question the status quo. If there's a better way of doing things we should investigate it.
- Create an inclusive environment. We work together to promote empathy and respect amongst all students and staff.
