If you love words and know how to use ‘em, we want you on our team!
The role
At Teachable, we empower creators to transform their knowledge into income. We need you to help us convince potential course creators to teach what they know—and use Teachable to do it.

  • Prioritize and stay organized to handle multiple assignments.

About you:

  • You are confident in your ability to tell compelling stories that sell.
  • You have strong grammar, creative writing, and editing skills.
  • You are a collaborative teammate and reliably hit deadlines.
  • You have experience running or participating in A/B testing strategies.

  • You have a genuine interest in learning more about the knowledge economy, since our mission at Teachable is to empower more creators to monetize their expertise.
