About Backblaze

Backblaze originated in a founder’s one-bedroom apartment where five people committed to helping people save their data. Backblaze provides cloud storage and backup that’s astonishingly easy to use and affordable. Our customers use our services so they can pursue dreams like curing cancer (genome mapping is data intensive), archiving the work of some of the greatest artists on the planet (learn more about how Austin City Limits uses B2), or simply sleeping well at night (anyone that’s spilled a cup of coffee on a laptop knows the relief that comes with complete, secure backups). We are entrusted with well over an exabyte of data from customers in more than 175 countries. We exited 2020 growing rapidly, and we've done it all with just $3M in total funding.

We’ve managed to nurture a team oriented culture with amazingly low turnover. Our approach is guided by honesty, transparency, and a commitment to doing the right thing for our customers and coworkers. Our customers are happy, and so are our coworkers: In the most recent “Great Place to Work” survey, 99% of our team rated Backblaze as “a great place to work.” Check out what our employees are saying on Glassdoor!

But while there is a lot to celebrate in our past, there is almost as much opportunity ahead of us. We are seeking freelance writers to develop content and contribute to the Backblaze blog, an online publication that reaches millions of readers each year, on a project basis.

What You’ll Do: 

  • Working from a creative brief, develop content on a per project basis.
  • Familiarize yourself with Backblaze’s products and industry trends.
  • Adapt writing style to house voice and style guide.
  • As content requires, coordinate and conduct interviews and independent research to complete content.
  • Self-edit content prior to submission.
  • Respond to feedback from [MC title] and various subject matter experts, and revise content one or more times as needed.

The Right Fit:

  • A portfolio of published work within the tech industry. Bonus points if you’ve worked in the cloud computing industry! 
  • Experience developing content for a mid-sized technology company or a tech-related publication either as a full-time employee or freelancer.
  • A deep well of curiosity and hunger to learn new things.
  • Openness to feedback and a willingness to engage in the revision process. 
  • An appreciation of the Backblaze culture and way of doing business.

Resumes and portfolios will be reviewed on a monthly basis, and we will only respond to inquiries if your experience is a fit for our needs and workload.

At Backblaze, we value being fair and good to our customers, partners, and employees. That’s why diversity, equity, and inclusion are at the core of our values. We are committed to fostering a workforce where all employees feel a sense of belonging regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, socioeconomic status, ability, veteran status, and education. We believe that our dedication to cultivating a diverse workspace not only allows us to better serve our customers in over 175 countries, but further reinforces our commitment to doing the right thing. We are proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer.
