Gatsby is growing fast! For example, in the last year our marketing team led a 100% increase in our Twitter following and supported hundreds of gatherings around the globe. We need an experienced content creator who can drive content for the developer audience and generate case studies, blog posts, sales enablement materials, and overall messaging for Gatsby.

This will include partnering with experts to create a content calendar and editorial plan for materials like blog posts, long form guides, whitepapers and more. Research, write and edit content for our owned channels, working closely with a range of internal and external individuals teams—product managers, open-source developers, community members, Gatsby users and customers —to identify compelling stories and create content Building a content strategy that is inclusive and scalable across communities. The web is an incredibly diverse place. Gatsby’s path to being the next way to build on the web runs through modern frontend development, open-source CMS communities like Wordpress and Drupal, e-commerce platforms like Shopify and BigCommerce, and enterprise CMSs like Sitecore and Episerver. Each community requires a different message and strategy, so you’ll get to do a wide variety of types of writing and tell a wide variety of stories.
You’ll be at the cutting edge of website development — working at one of the fastest-growing website building frameworks on the market is exciting! You’ll have the opportunity to learn about Gatsby’s highly innovative build system and pioneering tools such as Node, React, and GraphQL.
As our first full-time content hire,you’ll help build something from the ground up, and create priorities and processes that scale.
You’ll write for a company that people love and write about a product that positively impacts tens of thousands of developers every day.
You’ll be working in a safe, open environment of talented marketers, engineers, and project managers who have a broad range of perspectives and experience.
You’re uncomfortable writing technical content. Much of this role involves writing to different types of developers, so if you dislike or don’t feel comfortable with that, this probably isn’t the right role for you.
You’re not comfortable prioritizing your workflow. Because our user audience is so diverse, there’s a huge amount of potential things to do at any time. You’ll need to be comfortable with thoughtfully choosing where to focus & communicating that.
You want to be co-located with a large team/company. The largest clustering of people in one place is 5 folks in our Berkeley office. We have a strong sense of identity and are very close, but if in-person interactions with a large number of people is important to you then this may not be a good fit.
Gatsby is an equal opportunity employer. We eagerly seek applicants of diverse backgrounds and hire without regard to race, color, gender identity, religion, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, physical abilities (or disability), age, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Cultivating inclusivity and diversity is a top priority.
Headhunters and recruitment agencies may not submit resumes/CVs through this website or directly to managers. Gatsby does not accept unsolicited headhunter and agency resumes, and will not pay fees to any third-party agency or company that does not have a signed agreement with Gatsby.
