Codified is looking for a content marketer and writer in Toronto (remote candidates welcome)!
Are you a writer who loves to tell fun and insightful short stories? Codified is looking for a writer to help launch and maintain our content marketing program, starting with a blog. As part of the Growth Team you’d be responsible for writing content with the goal of building a relevant audience and driving user acquisition.
We develop a social marketplace (www.VarageSale.com) that is fun, easy and addictive where people buy and sell just about anything in a safe and friendly environment. We have already impacted the lives of millions of people and we are still growing fast. User engagement and retention is extremely high, but we're just getting started and we need your help.

Writing regular content for the blog, including research and basic data analysis
Overseeing blog post design, including selection of photos and visualization of data
Marketing the content via social media

Our target audience is primarily women (mothers, 30-45 years old) and our experience is that the content to engage our users is playful, helpful, real, relatively short form and highly visual.
This is an opportunity to join a small, but quickly growing team. We’re made up of hard working software developers and product folks. We enjoy beer, good food, and have a growth rate most people have only dreamed about. We prefer this individual is based in Toronto. We’re open to remote models for stellar candidates. Apply and we’ll tell you more.
