About Content Writer

In your role, you'll work closely with our Content Lead, Editorial Leads, and Editors to produce in-depth, top-one-percent-quality content covering a vast range of topics, fromClimate TechAngel Investing, and Education to Longevity.

Who you are:

  • You are a great writer and storyteller with an eye for detail and who can learn complex topics *fast.*
  • You have portfolio pieces that show experience with the above.
  • You are familiar with the Tech World and its different sectors.
  • You are a proactive, effective communicator, and excited about working alongside a diverse, distributed team.

What you will do:

  • You'll write content for On Deck JournalOn Deck Stories, or one of our other content verticals. We'll match you with the work that best fits your particular skills and preferences as a writer.
  • While we don't have a word count requirement, most of our pieces fall between 2000 words (Case Studies) and 5000 words (On Deck Journal).

Why you might be excited about us:

  • We’re tackling a big problem with even bigger potential. Participants in our existing Fellowships say great things about us.
  • You’ll be able to work remotely and (mostly) set your own schedule. On Deck was a remote-first team even before COVID, so we know what makes for a great remote environment.
  • You'll have a lot of flexibility in your role, and will be able to help define what our operations infrastructure looks like going forward.
  • We're backed by a who’s who of the biggest names in the venture investing world, including Founders Fund, Village Global, Keith Rabois, Balaji Srinivasan, Bloomberg Beta, and so many more. ( Read more about our Series A in this memo)

Why you might * not* be excited about us:

  • We're still a fairly small team with about 150 people (company-wide), so if you like more established companies, this role isn’t for you. You'll help create our company's culture.
  • We're an early-stage startup. Projects and priorities are likely to shift.
  • Everyone on the team is extremely mission-driven and works incredibly hard to push towards our lofty ambitions. Most people won’t be cut out for it.
  • You should be comfortable with just a dash of chaos. This is not the kind of job where you show up and we tell you exactly what to do every day.
  • On Deck is an unabashedly pro-startup, pro-tech organization. If that’s not your thing, this isn’t the place for you.


  • This is not an hourly job. Instead, we pay a flat rate per article. The rate varies depending on the type of content you write for us, its complexity, and length.
  • We're looking for long-term relationships with writers.
  • You can write as much or as little as you wish. Some writers choose to write 1 article per month for us, while others do enough to equate to a full work week.
  • This role comes with no benefits. ****


Our entire team works remotely, and we are excited about candidates globally.

You would start as soon as possible.
