Content writer (Remote 🌍, +3/-3 CET hours)

At Pento, we're building a better, faster, and more modern way for companies to run and automate payroll. And we're building a better and more progressive working environment for our people alongside. We raised $15.6m at Series A and we've only just gotten started! πŸš€

We're looking for the first Content Writer to join our team!

The role πŸŽ’

We’re looking for our first Content Writer who wants to help us generate more leads through all kinds of content and build a brand customers love.

You'll have a chance to experiment with different types and forms of content to identify and scale the most promising opportunities. You'll work closely with both marketing and sales teams to create content that resonates with our audience. Through your work, you will have a direct impact on Pento’s growth trajectory.

This is an opportunity to join an early marketing team (currently, only 2 people) with a lot of room for growth.

What you'll be doing

  • Writing articles - from thought leadership content to guest posts and SEO-focused articles
  • Writing long-form content like ebooks and reports
  • Creating case studies: (co)interviewing customers and turning interviews into inspiring stories
  • Creating written content for the website and the sales team
  • Working with freelance contributors or agencies if needed: creating briefs, editing, proofreading etc.
  • Perfecting our tone of voice to support our brand

The role will be a great fit if you... ✨

  • Have native-level command of English
  • Have 2+ years of experience in content writing, preferably in a B2B or HR/financial space
  • Know your way around relevant tools like a CMS (our website runs on Webflow)
  • Enjoy autonomy and ownership

Bonus points if you...

  • Have experience in content planning
  • Have experience in coordinating work of freelance contributors
  • Are comfortable with tools such as google search console, google analytics, ahrefs or willing to learn
  • Have experience creating content such as scripts for videos, podcasts, webinars etc
  • Want to grow in a role of owning all content created by Pento

Don’t worry about being a 100% fit. That’s impossible nonsense, anyway. If this sounds like an interesting opportunity to you and you think it could work, let’s chat.

What it's like working at Pento πŸ‘©πŸΏβ€πŸ’»

Our product πŸ”₯

We're a technology company, not an accountancy, payroll bureau, or similar. We build beautiful payroll software that automates all manual workflows and we usually help companies cut 50-80% off the time they spend on payroll. That means no spreadsheets, no e-mails, and no manual bank transfers. We've built an easy-to-use software product, that does all of this automatically.

Why now is a really exciting time to join us πŸš€

  • Payroll hasn’t been disrupted since… ever
  • Every company runs payroll, but very few companies are happy with their current process
  • Pento makes payroll up to 80% more efficient (we are probably conservative here)
  • We are helping over 700 companies run payroll across the UK and are on a mission to bring Pento to many more!
  • Our customers love Pento - our NPS is above 70 (check our Trustpilot by the way)
