Seattle, Washington, United States of America, Remote
Are you excited about working for a technology company that is securing the web? Are you looking for full-time, flexible hours* working remotely from anywhere in the United States? If so, this may be your dream job!
*Required core hours of 10 am - 1 pm Pacific Time
A successful candidate in this role will create original, ground-breaking website performance research, publishing those insights in a format that is easily understandable by our audience. This role will be approximately half research and half technical writing.
Defiant will provide tools like FastOrSlow.com which has a range of unpublished back-end capabilities that our researchers can use, along with an audience of over 4 million website owners who are interested in findings that uncover industry-leading insights on website performance. We expect you to publish a steady cadence of defendable research once every two weeks on average.
You will be working closely with the Defiant engineering team along with our marketing team. We will provide all the support you need in the form of tech resources, editing, collaboration, and brainstorming. The Defiant team is comfortable attempting ambitious experiments, failing and pursuing excellence until we succeed. We understand that doing this kind of work means taking creative risks. We will support you every step of the way.
This job is a mix of robust technical ability, the ability to come up with hypotheses, test them and publish any resulting research that is relevant to the website hosting and SEO community. The programming ability is one of the job requirements because you will need to pre-process lists, be able to manually script web crawlers, and automate other tasks. We also require strong writing skills that can make a technical subject as accessible as possible.
All positions require a trial period of approximately 2-3 weeks with a minimum commitment of 10 hours per week. You will be paid for this short-term contract, and it will be used to evaluate whether both parties want to pursue an ongoing, regular employment relationship.
All offers of employment are contingent on successful completion of a background check. The results of the background check are considered as they relate to the position and do not automatically disqualify someone from a offer of employment with the company.
We value diversity and do not discriminate based on race, color, religion or creed, national origin or ancestry, sex, age, physical or mental disability, military or veteran status, gender identity or expression, marital status, sexual orientation, political ideology, economic status, parental status, or any other non-performance-related status.
