Must have experience working as an editor for business or startup content
We’re looking for a freelance editor to join us as at They Got Acquired.
You’ll edit reported pieces, guide our roster of freelance writers, manage an editorial calendar, and build processes that facilitate content creation and publishing.
The ideal candidate has years of experience editing pieces on startups and business, and is familiar with the M&A process. We consider this role as adding expertise to our team, so your knowledge of the subject matter is important to us.
Our mission is to change the definition of startup success by covering 6-, 7-, and 8-figure acquisitions in the online space. These deals don’t tend to get headlines because they don’t return huge multiples to investors, yet they can be life-changing for founders and offer valuable insights for the entrepreneurial community.
Our ideal candidate…
This is a remote position on a freelance basis. Work whenever you want and wherever you want, so long as you do the job well.
We’re looking for 15-20 hours/month to start, with an option to add more hours as the company grows.
The role pays $60-75/hour, depending on experience, and we’re happy to work on an hourly basis or a monthly retainer.
(If you have 15+ years of experience in this exact field and command a higher rate, please apply anyhow and let us know that in your application.)
We offer a check-in at the three-month mark to reflect on whether the partnership is a fit for both of us.
Our mission at They Got Acquired is to redefine startup success by highlighting “small” exits, especially those by bootstrapped and underrepresented founders.
Our team is entirely remote. We believe it’s possible to make a meaningful impact and reach millions of readers without working ourselves into the ground. We love this work — and we also enjoy life outside of work.

Here’s the application. No resume or cover letter required.
Look forward to hearing from you!
