People at Trueline are passionate, driven and perpetually curious. We believe that every company has a story to tell—be it a plucky startup or a multinational corporation. Our job is to help them tell it.
We’re a fast-growing B2B branding, marketing and consulting business located in the heart of Portland, Maine. We’re best known for our industry-specific publications and have a knack for helping businesses shape a narrative. We’re always on the lookout for smart and ambitious people to join our team. This is an opportunity to work with one of Maine’s most fun, innovative, collaborative and profitable businesses—a recipient of the “Best Places to Work in ME” award five years running.
As a Staff Writer, you will be responsible for writing five feature-length stories per week (~1,000 words each) as well as 10 story abstracts (150 words each). These stories will appear in our publications: Vanguard, Toggle and Blueprint. They must be written quickly based on phone interviews and internal notes. We’re looking for clear, concise copy—with a bit of creative flare (where appropriate). Unlike a typical magazine or newspaper job, this position involves a lot customer service: making sure we shed the company in a positive light without sounding overly promotional.
If you’re passionate about writing, love to learn new things and enjoy working in a fast-paced (virtual) environment, this is the role for you.
