LifeWork is building an operating system to help top-tier freelancers save the hundreds of hours each year spent running their business. We help freelancers gain control of their income, access healthcare and benefits, and ultimately reach more clients.

Our first product, launched at the beginning of the year, streamlines the payment process between freelancer and client. We take an escrow-like approach, saving both parties hours in admin time normally spent processing invoices and 1099s and giving them more security with every payment. Freelancers get paid faster and more frequently, and their clients put down a lower up-front payment, which is vital in this current climate. We are growing organically and generating revenue, and are seeking someone to help open the spigot.

We are targeting top-tier freelancers in the US. This is a challenging segment to market to, given their distributed and individualistic nature. However, this also presents us with our greatest opportunity, and highlights the importance of this role.

We are looking for an experienced digital marketer. This person would focus on creating demand for the product through social networks, SEO/SEM, email marketing campaigns,thought leader programs,and more.
The ideal person would be someone that has been a successful digital marketing manager for 4-7 years, has a desire to learn effective marketing strategy, and wants to take their career to the next level. You will be working under the direction and mentorship of a world-class Strategic Marketing Advisor. This will be a career-defining marketing challenge.

We are bootstrapping the company, meaning that the founding team is working on the side to pay the bills until we reach significant revenue. This role is initially unpaid, with a generous equity grant to compensate the risk you would be taking. We then have a compensation plan that is geared towards getting you paid as quickly as possible once we start generating meaningful revenue or raise funding. We want all early members of our team to be "owners" and to share meaningfully in the upside as LifeWork grows. We are both former top-tier freelancers building what needs to exist in this market - we really hope you are excited to join us in doing so!

The ideal candidate would be able to work full-time, initially without cash compensation, or would commit roughly 20 hours while working around another job or freelance work. We're a distributed team, all currently based in California, but are open to candidates from anywhere in the US.
