Type is building a document editor for the AI era.

We are hiring a full-time professional writer who cares deeply about the craft of writing and has a knack for marketing.

You'll join our small team in-person in Brooklyn and have ownership in a fast-growing AI startup backed by top VCs.

If the description below sounds like you, please reach out.

Does this sound like you?

We're looking for someone who's obsessed with writing and communication.

Maybe this sounds like you:

  • Do you find yourself mentally editing text on billboards, subway ads, and instruction manuals?
  • Have you ever missed your subway stop or let a pot boil over because you were too engrossed in proofreading an article on your phone?
  • Is writing a compulsion for you?
  • Do you jot down great phrases you come across?
  • Do you relish the challenge of fitting a complex idea into a tweet without losing its essence?
  • Do you appreciate the brilliance of a great Super Bowl ad or SNL skit?
  • Are you the go-to person for friends and family when they need help wording an email?
  • Are you fascinated by other people? If there's an interesting conversation happening next to you at a restaurant or coffee shop, do you eavesdrop?
  • Do you like people? Is some of your best writing downstream from lively conversations you've had?
  • Are you intensely curious? When Google fails you, will you cold email someone? Have you ever gone to a library to dig up an obscure book or document without being asked?
  • Do you know when words aren't enough? Do you instinctively reach to other mediums – images, graphs, memes, videos – in service of best communicating an idea?

If you found yourself nodding along to most of these, please read on.

Content is the key to driving AI adoption

As Type's Writer and Content Lead, you will play a crucial role in educating users about how Type can transform their writing process.

You'll create content that demonstrates the capabilities of Type's AI-driven features, such as:

  • Type Chat for ideation and brainstorming
  • In-doc features like "Generate Draft" for writing high-substance first drafts
  • The command palette for summoning powerful writing commands at the cursor

You'll take lead on our core content efforts:

  • Publishing thoughtful blog and landing page content
  • Writing educational onboarding emails
  • Crafting and distributing major announcements
  • Producing video tutorials

We're building an AI-powered document editor for writers like you, so you need to be able to get super passionate about our product, artificial intelligence, and writing. You'll be helping to educate the world about all three.

You'll also be responsible for distributing this content effectively to maximize its reach and engagement with our target audience. When we have an announcement to make, for example, you should think hard about how we can get it in front of the right people.

We are a small, passionate team backed by top VCs

Right now, we're a team of three based in Brooklyn, backed by Y Combinator and other top Silicon Valley VCs and angels.

We are building a document editor designed for the AI era. You can read more about our product and vision here: https://blog.type.ai/post/type-seed-round

As our first content hire, you'll have the opportunity to shape our content strategy from the ground up and make a significant impact on the future of writing.


A sample of things you might work on:

  • Writing thoughtful blog posts, tutorials, and product updates. For example, you might write a post comparing the relative writing strengths and weaknesses between the latest Gemini model and Claude 3.
  • Creating and managing email campaigns, mostly onboarding sequences that educate new users
  • Scripting, producing, and editing videos that showcase Type's features
  • Analyzing content performance and using data to help inform where to invest our time next

What we're looking for in you

  • 6+ years of experience in content marketing, writing, or a related field
  • Strong writing and editing skills, with a knack for explaining complex topics clearly
  • Proven ability to create content that drives traffic, engagement, and conversions
  • A bend towards writing things that are pragmatic and helpful
  • Experience with SEO, email marketing, and video production best practices (you don't need to be a pro at video production, but you should feel comfortable with it)
  • Experience using publishing and website building tools like Webflow – ideally, you're somewhat technical and can build pages in Webflow yourself
  • A deep passion for writing and a curiosity about AI's potential to transform the process


  • Competitive salary and generous stock options
  • 100% employer-covered medical, dental, and vision for you and any dependents
  • Dedicated workspace in a beautiful new building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn
