Linktree is looking for a Content Editor eager to contribute to the continued growth and development of the Linktree brand by editing and assigning content for our blog. This role reports to the Head of Content and will be focused on helping to oversee the day-to-day content of the blog, shaping the Linktree voice, and managing a team of freelance writers. This editor should have an understanding of SEO best practices, strong writing and editing skills, and be able to make tech advice relatable and compelling to our users and potential consumers. The ideal candidate should be comfortable reaching out to talent, editing for different languages, interviewing experts, and take accuracy very seriously.


What You Will Do: 

  • Oversee a team of freelance writers contributing daily blog posts
  • Work with Head of Content to ideate content that helps the company hit traffic goals, acquire new users, educate readers, and drive conversions
  • Recruit, manage, and grow a team of talented freelance writers, including evaluating writing and editing tests, setting rates, and tracking invoices
  • Manage and edit content from writers for the Linktree blog focused on brand news, product features, influencers, tech tutorials, and industry trends
  • Copy and edit pages across the Linktree website on an as-needed basis
  • Adhere to and apply SEO best practices when editing freelance content
  • Write briefs for the creative team


What We Are Looking For:

  • SEO writing and editing experience, including optimizing content for search engines, keyword research, and link building
  • A demonstrated interest in social media and technology
  • Familiarity with basic data analytics
  • Experience recruiting and managing a team of freelance writers


Where and How We Work:

This role can be based anywhere in the USA; we currently have close to 20 people in the US with offices in Melbourne, Sydney with LA coming next. Our team is spread across Australia, Brazil, Indonesia, USA, Canada, Ireland, and Nigeria.


Being globally distributed doesn't mean working to one time-zone and we offer autonomy and flexibility in how you structure your days and weeks. There will be the need for some collaboration outside of a "normal" 9-5 being a global company but we aim to work asynchronously where possible.


Our Culture and Benefits:

Linktree's company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:


  • We have a paid 18-week parental leave program that is inclusive of birth and non-birthing parents and supports the whole parenting lifecycle
  • We are proud to offer all regular full-time and part-time employees 20 hours' paid volunteering leave per calendar year
  • We have several diversity and inclusion initiatives underway, including a D&I council, training for all staff on neurodiversity, unconscious bias, and the incorporation of a transgender inclusion policy
  • We prioritize our team's mental health, with all employees having free access to Headspace and Uprise, including 1:1 coaching sessions from qualified psychologists or counsellors
  • All Linktree staff receive $750 USD towards setting up their work from home space

The Linktree Story

The average number of social media accounts is close to 9 per person these days. Chances are you’re also using more than 3-4 social media platforms - But where should someone who want to discover more about you can achieve that? In a highly fragmented digital world, the concept of presenting your whole self feels overwhelming to most - and that’s where Linktree comes in.


Creating this category 5 years ago, we launched a simple tool that allowed anyone to manage their corner of the online world. Want to link all your social media accounts under one link? Thinking of turning your passion into your income? Want to share your ideas, beliefs, or even just a playlist you like? Linktree has the platform to help you get it done.


It sounds good, we hear you say, but how do I know if it works? Fair question - why don’t you take it up with Facebook, TikTok, Redbull, HBO, Metallica, Alicia Keys, Selena Gomez, or Michelle Obama? They’re all using Linktree!


With an average sign up rate of 30,000+ new users per day for the past 18 months (with no signs of stopping), and with our latest funding round of $45M USD announced recently, we’re on our way to make real impact on the digital world - and we’d love for you to join us for this ride.
