Staff Writer

Campfire Labs

Why apply for this job?

A lot of marketing on the internet is bad. We love all the cat gifs and think those should stay, but we think there should be less 10 Things You Need to Know About XYZ and more stories full of interesting characters and plots. Our internal north star is to tell stories that feel like they could run in The New Yorker or The Atlantic. As a staff writer, you’ll be an essential part of achieving this goal.

You’ll be working with exceptionally talented storytellers and marketers. Our team has written stories for publications like The New York Times, The Atlantic, and Fast Company. Our senior editorial manager, Jack, has edited writers who have gone on to work at The New Yorker and write books for the best publishing houses. We are all dedicated to great storytelling and growing as writers every day.

We work with some really cool brands like Dropbox, Asana, and Stripe that share our values. For example, we’re inspired and strive to learn from Asana’s efforts to be radically inclusive and Stripe’s innovative approaches to solving the climate crisis.


  • Researching and pitching story ideas based on our customers’ marketing strategy
  • Interviewing thought leaders and industry experts about their ideas and turning them into compelling and engaging stories (like Cal Newport who we interviewed for Dropbox).
  • Writing stories that explain concepts and keep readers engaged
  • Editing stories based on feedback from the editorial team and customer feedback
  • Self-management of workload, project update, and communications with clients, in collaboration with editorial production leadership and account management

What we’re looking for

  • Experience writing for great publications Think national magazines like Wired or business blogs like Buffer
  • A good eye for stories that engage readers We like writers who can interview a boring academic and spin up a story that’s impossible to put down
  • Experience writing about business You’re curious about the world of business and don’t flinch when someone talks about a marketing funnel or Google Analytics
  • Low ego and entitlement You aren’t a creative diva, but instead enjoy learning about people and telling their stories no matter their background
  • Values alignment You value kindness, enjoy helping your teammates grow, and believe in the idea of people before profits


  • Remote


  • We pay competitive salaries based on experience


  • Flexible vacation time, monthly health insurance stipend, and maternity/paternity leave.
