About Backblaze

Backblaze is a public company that makes storing and using data astonishingly easy. When our founding team got together, they committed to helping people save their data. Today, the Backblaze Storage Cloud provides a foundational platform around the world for a broad community of developers, IT generalists, entrepreneurs, and individuals who seek the easy, affordable, trusted solutions we provide.

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. Our customers are happy, and so are our coworkers: In the most recent “Great Place to Work” survey, 97% 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 proofreaders to proof content on the Backblaze Blog, an online publication that reaches millions of readers each year, on a project basis, as well as for case studies, e-books, and other long-form content pieces.

What You’ll Do: 

  • Review and edit content for accurate grammar, spelling, and internal style guide usage on a weekly basis.
  • Familiarize yourself with Backblaze’s editorial style guide.
  • Ensure consistency with voice and tone.

The Right Fit:

  • Experience proofreading content for technology companies or tech-related publications. Bonus points if you’ve worked on cloud-related content! 
  • Availability at relatively short notice and the ability to provide less than seven day turn on content, with an average of about 2600 words per week that could develop into longer assignments over time.
  • Familiarity with AP Style.
  • A hunger to learn new things.
  • 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.
