At Haven we automate freight & logistics for commodity traders, food suppliers, and consumer goods companies. We're currently looking for several writers to work with us who can produce content that will be picked up by major blogs and publications. Our ideal Peeps are those who have journalistic backgrounds and are knowledgeable about how to write pieces that will be attractive to major publications. Bonus points if you have contacts or other resources to help secure those placements.
Our main customers (and audience for these articles) are commodity traders, so we place a high emphasis on hiring Peeps with backgrounds in finance and economics. While you're not required to have a background in the shipping industry specifically, a familiarity of the industry (or willingness to learn more about the space) would be a major benefit.
The writing we're looking for will not be consumer focused, nor are we looking for content marketers - you will be writing B2B pieces. Check out our blog for examples of some past content: http://blog.haveninc.com/. As far as volume is concerned, our goal is to produce 2-3 pieces per month, ideally dividing out that work between several writers in order to diversity who is writing on what topics. We estimate paying around $200 per post (and would prefer Peeps invoice per post) at around 500-800 words each, but are open to negotiating rates per post.
Time per month will vary depending on number of pieces being written
