Retool is a fast way of building internal tools. Our goal is to make this large class of software faster, cheaper, and more enjoyable to build. If that's something you're interested in, we'd love to chat.
Retool is a fast way of building internal tools. Software has transformed industries and driven major productivity gains, but it's still expensive to plan, build, and maintain. And that's a shame, because it's so useful!
Our goal is to make internal tools faster, cheaper, and more enjoyable to build. Because then we'll have a lot more of them, and that's a good thing.
We're based in San Francisco. Culturally, we're tightly knit, and enjoy spending time with each other. We like to be around people that are warm, move quickly, enjoy building things, and can reason and debate without animosity.
We're generating revenue and growing quickly. Our investors include Sequoia Capital, Y Combinator, as well as Paul Graham, Nat Friedman, John and Patrick Collison, Elad Gil, and Daniel Gross.
Retool is looking to hire our first content marketing manager to build an audience of technical and technically-inclined folks; you’ll get it done through top quality developer-focused writing, as well as working on our content strategy and figuring out the smartest ways to get Retool in front of people who need it. Writing engaging, technically literate content for developers is one of the hardest jobs in tech, but it’s also one of the most important.
Your primary responsibility as our content writer is going to be writing and the strategy of writing. We need serious help with a few things:
• Building a world class blog with genuinely useful tutorials, interesting interviews and profiles, and thought-provoking analyses
• Communicating the value of Retool to a technical and technically-inclined audience through our website copy and organization
• Building an exciting and valuable product experience through our documentation and helpful product copy
This is a short list, but there’s plenty more to work on, like case studies and whitepapers for our sales team. We’re not looking for someone to pull tickets off of a backlog: to make Retool’s content operation great, you’ll need to be someone who’s able to figure out where they can add the most value and how they should spend their time.
We haven’t invested a ton in content so far, but we’ve seen some positive early signals. We've had a few pieces do really well on HackerNews, like What's SAP, Salesforce for Engineers, and Building Apps on Google Sheets. We’ve got some really interesting stuff in the works content-wise, like an industry survey about how developers build internal tooling, but we’re at Day 1, and we need help.
