Swappa is a human-powered marketplace for consumer tech, including smartphones, laptops, video games, and smart home tech. With hundreds of thousands of happy buyers and sellers using Swappa every month we’re on our way to over $100M worth of commerce in 2019.
Swappa’s Content Marketing Specialist will help implement and improve Swappa’s content strategy to drive more commerce in our marketplace and via affiliates. This writing position works closely with marketing, support and creative departments to create content that informs our users and supports their efforts to buy and sell on Swappa. This is a full-time, remote, work-from-almost-anywhere role.
Swappa is not a “traditional” news or content site. However, having relevant, timely content is important for us as an ecommerce company. Better on-site content helps us in our SEO/search, social and marketing efforts, while benefiting our users with helpful and engaging content. Success in this role is ultimately measured in content-driven commerce.

Though we have been around a while, are bootstrapped and profitable, Swappa still operates like a startup. Everyone on our team wears many hats and does whatever it takes to get the job done. Egos are left at the door and the phrase “that’s not my job” never flies here.

You must be motivated, responsible and autonomous to be successful at Swappa. If you’re looking to be dropped into structured corporate machinery with year-long plans and big budgets, this is not the job for you. On the other hand, if you like the idea of working remotely for a small company with big aspirations, this will be a great opportunity for you.
