Smart Writer / Communicator Wanted - e-Interview

Our goals for this hire:

  1. Our #1 need: Communicate how SwiftCRM / SwiftCloud can help small business owners. We are becoming something like "sh0pify for services", an all-in-one platform for plumbing, pilates teachers, auto mechanics, real estate agents - anyone who sells services specifically (not really retail or brick and mortar businesses). Think CRM, appointment scheduling software, eDocs, task and project management - a work platform. We need to develop a lot of assets for this.
  2. We expect the marketing team to be at about 3-5 people within 6 months, and 10 people by mid next year.
  3. We also need you to be able to intake some "boring" media: help videos, help support articles + short video from Roger, the founder talking about some new features periodically and update assets, or for major releases we'll create new suite of assets.
  4. A typical "kit" might be 1 sales page + 3 blog articles + some ad campaigns
  5. Our goal is also this role turns into Communications Lead, overseeing social media / community, ad variations, and one assistant writer, however, this is a very hands-on role requiring a lot out writing - not just management.
  6. There's room for growth. Budgets are tight initially, but as we win more subscribers, we can loosen up the budgets, offer performance bonuses, travel and other fun. None of that is possible until we're a bit further along.
  7. All work is remote, results focused, work whenever you like.

      Interview Questions

      What has been your most challenging project you've ever done?

      How would you do it differently if you did it today?

      Let's say life goes great for the coming 5 years. Not "winning the lottery" great, but all goes well according to your goals. What does your life look like? If these plans including leaving us to start that goat yoga business or whatever your dream is, it's ok, some people work for some time and make meaningful contributions during their tenure. We hope we can help you along your path + mutually benefit in the mean time.

      What is the hardest part about working as a writer?

      What do you most enjoy about writing?

      What is the writing of which you are most proud?

      Why are you proud of this work?

      Thank you for taking the time to let us get to know you a bit!

      Once this is sent, we'll send you a copy, and we'll take a few days to consider. The next step in our hiring process is to give you some real-world work, which will get increasingly complex over a series of weeks as each level is passed.

      Note we generally start people on paid test projects first, then hire on a probationary basis which then leads to permanent hires. Coders start on a fingernail, then a finger, then a hand, then an arm before proceeding to open heart surgery. When possible, we like coders to "own" a project and so whenever practical and possible once proven, we'll have you focus entirely on a product, usually new, so you will not spend a lot of time reading someone else's code, but instead writing your own.

      • I certify all the above information is correct and true.
      • Privacy: The information contained herein will be kept confidential, and if you have an active employer, they will not be contacted until we first discuss with you via chat and are ready to make an offer; most typically we would start with some small (paid) test work first.
      • I authorize SwiftCloud to check into all of the above information for purpose of employment via remote contract as an independent contractor.

      P.S. This e-interview was created on SwiftCloud, of course - this is just one of hundreds of potential uses for the system.
