Lead Writer

Cambridge, MA

The team

Superpedestrian brings together a team of extraordinary people for one vision: transforming urban mobility. Our first move? Pedal power. We have an exclusive license to MIT’s Copenhagen Wheel, thousands of pre-order sales and backing from tier-one venture capital investors. Together, our team is now bringing the Wheel to the masses.

The Copenhagen Wheel is an electronic assist robot that responds seamlessly to how you ride. It makes biking a breeze. To work with us, you don’t have to be the world’s most obsessed cyclist, but you should possess a strong desire to change the way people everywhere move about cities. We’re revolutionizing personal transit for a sustainable future.

It should be a no-brainer: Superpedestrian is an equal opportunity employer, with women and minorities strongly encouraged to apply. We care about your skills and your character. If we think there’s a good fit, we will get in touch. So please, no phone calls or recruiters.

Who you are

Life at Superpedestrian is about creating the magic that people feel when they ride the Copenhagen Wheel. We’re looking for a prolific and talented writer to help us tell the story of Superpedestrian and Urban Mobility across our blog, email, and social channels. We want to build a massive online audience for our content and create a following that relies on our deep knowledge of Urban Mobility. Essentially, your job will be to write engaging stories about robots, bikes, biking, commuting, cities, technology, climate, and people. If you’re interested in this stuff, you’ll love this job.

  • Past experience producing content for the web specifically, as well as channel-specific knowledge (Blog platforms, Email platforms, Facebook, Twitter, etc.).
  • Past experience building audiences either online or offline
  • A dual-minded approach: You’re highly creative and an excellent writer but can also be process-driven, think scale, and rely on data to make decisions
  • BA/BS degree

What you can expect

  • A team of awesome, like-minded, driven people that support each other, and mentors from across the top echelons of industry
  • A competitive compensation and equity package as well as a 401(K) retirement savings plan
