Job Description

We’re looking for a passionate Content Writer who loves to conduct thorough research, come up with new ideas, and find valuable information to share with our audience of engaged marketing professionals. Longform, short form, and everything in between, you create content that captivates, educates, and inspires your audience. You’re able to convey complex concepts with simple words and lots of personality. You appreciate the value — to both a brand and a customer — of high quality content. You understand the impact of great content on SEO, branding, and bottom line results.

Our Content Writer should be an expert collaborator, driving projects within our Marketing team and working cross-functionally with other teams to ensure our content is aligned with business goals. Dyspatch is scaling and you’ll contribute to our content style guide, as well as build our brand with us.

If you have familiarity with writing paid ads (like for Google or LinkedIn) let us know — that would be a great asset in this role.

Salary: CAD $60,000 - 70,000 annually

We’re based in Canada and this role is open to candidates who have valid Canadian work authorization (a SIN) and currently reside in Canada. Our core meeting hours are 9:00 am - 2:00 pm Pacific Time, and we ask that you are available during that time frame — both for meetings and for connection.

Our team is remote first and also maintains an office in Victoria, BC for those who would like to work in the space full or part time. The successful candidate will be asked to start as a remote employee and will have the option to work out of our Victoria, BC headquarters when the pandemic has ended or to remain fully remote.
