Wordable helps marketers publish more content, faster.

We’re out to kill the soul-sucking task of uploading, formatting, and properly optimizing content inside a CMS (in bulk and at scale). This frees up hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars each month for large content teams at the savviest brands on the interwebs.

We know this, because we’ve experienced it first-hand for the better part of a decade and help companies like monday.com. BigCommerce, ahrefs, and more solve it on a daily basis.

We’re a fully remote company, with team members + customers spread out on almost every time zone. So you can work where you want, when you want, as long as there’s a tiny overlap each week and the app keeps getting better. The fewer pointless meetings and stupid emails, the better.

Here's a sample list of projects you might work on in any given week

  • Lead long-term direction & evolution of product.

  • Improve the onboarding experience.

  • Make our use cases more usable and intuitive.

  • Define/improve our visual identity and design library.

  • Negotiate priorities and trade-offs with the engineering team.



What skills are we looking for?

  • An extensive web-based application design background. (4+ years of full-time experience).

  • Expertise with Figma, Sketch, or similar.

  • Design Library / Component-driven mentality. You value design consistency and like coming up with a design vocabulary (aka naming/reusing visual stuff).

  • A talent for communicating complicated features through well-crafted design.

  • Self-motivated and proactive, we don’t have managers and will trust you to act and take initiatives freely.

  • Nice to have:
    • Experience working in a fully remote, distributed environment.

    • Experience optimizing a product for trial conversion and/or user retention.

    • Experience with niche-specific products with little competition (users don’t know exactly what to expect and we have a hard time communicating our beyond-obvious features).

    • Experience setting up basic usage metrics to validate what is working and what is getting our users confused.

    • Some basic coding/CSS understanding. It doesn’t need to be professional experience and we don’t expect you to write any code, but it is nice to have a feel of what is easy to do. (We use Bootstrap CSS basically).

    • A beautiful portfolio.

What you’ll get (why work with us):

  • A blank slate. We have a good V1 up and running, and have tons of new areas to move into, but we need your help prioritizing them

  • Long-term timeline. We’re 100% bootstrapped, backed by profitable companies already in the same space. So we don’t need to sell within X years, or make Y investors happy.

  • Zero micromanagement & tons of autonomy. We want to work with good people who’re good at what they do. That makes collaboration easy. But we also know when to leave them the hell alone.

  • Informal, friendly culture. Small enough that we’ll talk directly and easily and make fast decisions and produce a lot. But large enough that you’re also not having to focus on customer success or SEO or all the other “stuff'' that’s required (unless you want to be involved).

  • Flexible, remote work environment. Yes, we’ll probably need to talk at some point throughout the week. But no, you don’t need to be on Slack or Zoom all day, either.

  • Flexible vacation policy. Take days or weeks off, when you want, with just a little heads up and prep beforehand.

  • Home office & equipment budget, + coworking if you prefer.

  • In-person meetups after COVID.

  • 100% benefits. Full medical, dental, and vision for US-based peeps. Reimbursements for international people.

  • Starting salary range: Depending on experience & ability.

Please note that when you go to apply with us, you'll be directed to a hiring website hosted by Codeless, Interactive LLC. Codeless is our sister company that we work closely with on all the things. But rest assured -you'd be working strictly for Wordable, not doing two jobs for the price of one.
