Remote job description

Are you interested in championing a product that makes work better? The science is clear: happier employees are more productive and stay at companies longer-everyone wins!

Who we are

Humu sends intelligent nudges to every person within a company. These small, scientifically-backed suggestions help each person build better habits, work smarter, and connect with their colleagues-and are the most effective way to drive positive change throughout an organization. We are a behavioral change start-up founded by Laszlo Bock, Wayne Crosby, and Dr. Jessie Wisdom, and a growing team with diverse backgrounds and expertise in the People and Product space.

What you'll get to work on

Humu's Nudge Engine? deploys thousands of customized nudges-small, personal steps-throughout organizations to empower every employee, manager, team, and leader as a change agent. Over time, our nudges grow increasingly aware of the timing, messaging, and motivational techniques that inspire individual employees towards action.

What you get to work on

As a member of Humu's Marketing Team, you will be responsible for combining science reporting and storytelling to help position Humu as an industry thought leader. You'll create content for a wide range of communication channels including web, email, print, media relations, blogs, eBooks, customer success stories, and other website content. This position will focus on creative content creation that strengthens and expands the purchase and usage of Humu and reinforces our overall brand, vision, and mission.

Where you fit in

We are committed to change the working world for the better by bringing greater meaning and happiness into everyone's working lives, everywhere. We are passionate about our mission, and excited to collaborate with people who want to do the same - and people who will bring in their different perspectives to help us continue to shape our team and product. If this is you, please apply!
