Hi there! Thanks so much for taking this step to get to know us and for inviting us to get to know you better. We're always looking for the next person who could be a great fit for the Buffer team! Is it you?
What We're Looking For
Content is one of the keystones of Buffer. We experiment and share the results. We learn everything we can about a topic and share it with our audience. We listen to their insights, work to answer their questions and grow together. We'd love to hear your ideas on how to make our content stronger!
We'd love to know more about your areas of expertise and what gets you excited to wake up in the morning. Some of the areas that might be fun to work on at Buffer include:
- Video creation
- Social media
- Landing pages
- Email marketing
You don't need to be able to do all these things, but if a few especially call out to you we'd love to hear from you. And we'd be super excited to hear about all the things we haven't even thought of yet that you think would be great for the Buffer community.
The Buffer content team is a small, tight group that moves fast on many different new ideas. Our current focuses include social media sharing, blogging, email marketing and more. We work in these areas with an eye toward constant improvement through experimentation, keeping in mind the Buffer values in everything we create and support. You'll often hear us ask how things "feel." How something feels often trumps how it performs.
As a distributed team, we work toward our goals by being in regular communication (over HipChat, Sqwiggle, Hackpads, and twice-yearly in-person work retreats somewhere in the world).
We also strive for that great balance of being a team that feels like a family. That means we share feedback regularly, support each other's self-improvement efforts, and take mistakes as opportunities to learn together.
What We Value
Clear communication, transparency, open-mindedness, empathy and patience are just a few of Buffer's cultural values. We are looking for a person who understands this culture and will thrive within a team of people passionate about self-improvement, honesty and openness.
Where You'll Work
You will work in the place that makes you happy, that inspires you daily, and helps you to become the person that you wish to be. You will work with team members scattered around the world and across time zones to build a better culture and product. More about how we work remotely See where the Buffer team is now
