Job Description

Our company

Our mission is to defend human rights and democracy through building software that is essential for digital freedom and privacy protection for all Internet users.

ProtonMail was founded in 2014 by a group of scientists who met at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). And since its inception, the company has grown at a fast pace and today has over 26 million users. Our principal product, ProtonMail, is the world’s largest secure email service. Our second product, ProtonVPN, is one of the world’s most popular VPN services. Our vision is to build an Internet platform for the protection of digital rights, and we are also developing additional products such as ProtonCalendar, ProtonDrive, and much more.

Proton users include leaders of the Hong Kong protest movement, New York Times journalists, some of the world’s largest corporations, and millions of ordinary citizens from over 180 countries. Our team is diverse and dynamic, representing over 30 different nationalities, with offices in Geneva, Zurich, Prague, Vilnius, Skopje, San Francisco, and Taipei.

Role description

As a member of our Content Team, you’ll help create multimedia content that inspires people to take steps toward securing their digital lives and builds awareness and trust in our brand.

We prize writers who can quickly grasp difficult technical topics and turn abstract ideas into persuasive, actionable copy. You will be an expert on the brand voice. On any given day, you may need to write advertising copy for ProtonDrive, a video script for ProtonCalendar, a landing page for ProtonVPN or a newsletter for ProtonMail. You’ll be expected to work constructively with colleagues across the company.

The role is more proactive than reactive. You’ll need to be able to identify revenue opportunities and articulate new growth ideas for the marketing team. Working at Proton requires a strong understanding of what makes our user community tick.

If you’re a results-driven marketer, feel comfortable taking initiative, and thrive in a fast-paced environment, this is a great opportunity to play a pivotal role in a fast-growing company. You will have a concrete impact on the future of the business as a whole.
