Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other marginalised folks tend to only apply when they check every box. So, if you think you have what it takes, but don’t necessarily meet every single point on the job description, please still get in touch. We’d love to have a chat and see if you could be a great fit.

How to apply

Send us an email at editorial@finimize.com with a brief intro, examples of your written work, and your CV.

If your profile’s a good fit, we’ll ask you to complete a preliminary writing test, and then arrange an introductory call to get to know each other better.

👋 Psst... We're an equal opportunity employer and value diversity on our team.
