Uscreen is a hyper-growth (and profitable) bootstrapped product-led SaaS business.  We are revolutionizing the way that video-based entrepreneurs & creators monetize their content. Uscreen has grown from 30 to 100 employees over the last year — with the best yet to come!

Uscreen provides an all-in-one platform for entrepreneurs to sell subscriptions, VOD, and live-streamed events on the web, through mobile apps, and via OTT (over-the-top) devices. 10,000+ video creators build, market, and sell their content with Uscreen — and they generate hundreds-of-millions of dollars in revenue doing it.

About The Role:

This person will support our existing Content Marketing Lead by splitting the workload and expediting delivery, focusing roughly 70% of the time on creating various pieces of content, from blog articles and video scripts, to ebooks and downloadables.

  • Experience working with WordPress
  • Basic knowledge of Google Analytics

Benefits:

  • 100% Remote – Work from anywhere (OK, almost anywhere…), as long as you are able to work your scheduled hours and attend team meetings.
  • 20 paid days off per year (eligible after your first 90-days)
  • 2 Company Holidays
  • Remote Office Equipment Reimbursement (up to $500 USD)
