A bit about the job:

With this position you will be overall responsible for content at Refuga, with a focus on our blog, but also including other marketing tasks. The job can also consist of others areas where content is needed (news letters, social media, content for other sites, etc.). The job is location independent. That means no office. You can be based where you want and travel around (we do). Depending on where you will be working from, we will agree on the hours you are online and working.

The job will contain the following areas:

  • Researching for new content
  • Doing interviews
  • Collecting data
  • Writing posts
  • Putting together graphics for the posts
  • Marketing of each posts
  • Work will include doing posts completely from a-z, but sometimes also finishing and editing other people’s posts.
  • Approx. one day per week will be focused on outreach, working with bloggers and media (including establishing contact, communication and providing them with content)

The topics are aimed at all entrepreneurial minds and will be in the following three areas:

  • Insights into the Refuga journey
  • Resources on growing you company
  • Experiments in getting most out of life


Who we are looking for:

We are hiring the right person, so feel free to apply. Here are some of the areas we will be looking at:

  • Have a really high sense of quality. The content we will publish is going to be the best within it’s field.
  • You have to have experience curating high quality content.
  • Be productive. We are a startup, so we work fast and get things done, so should you.
  • Be absolutely fluent in English.
  • Be proactive. We want someone with ideas.
  • Someone that doesn’t like being micro managed. You have to be able to make things happen your self.
  • Of course you have to dig the concept of Refuga. We couldn’t imagine anyone not digging it :), but this is not just a job, but something you should be proud of and passionate about. We are and we want to build a team that has the same spirit.

In general we are looking for someone who wants responsibility and a great chance. The perfect candidate could be someone with the dream of starting up their own company in the future and a job at Refuga could be the next step towards that.


How will it work?

We are a location independent project and, due to the nature of the project, we often travel. This also means that this job is location independent, meaning that you can work from where you like.

We communicate daily using Trello and Skype.

We are a company that works with processes. This means that every recurrent task we have in the company is associated with a process – a specific way we do that exact tasks. We document everything via Trello, so we can work without any problems even though we run things remotely.

You will be part of a project that has been going on since 2012 and since the end of 2014 as a full-time project. The team consist of 5 people; the two owners, two assistents and one developer. You will be the first full-time employee in the project (YEAAAH).


What do I get paid?

The pay is set at $2.000 per month.

You also get

  • Full access to the two owners, including feedback on your own project
  • One yearly Refuga trip where we will also be
  • Access to the Refuga network

We know the salary isn’t much. This job is perfect for someone who is living or want to live as a digital nomad or is permanently living some where cheap. We travel around ourselves, living on a smaller budget than we would back in Denmark.


How do I apply?

Update 10th of April 2015: This opening is closed. We’re currently going through the applications!

First of all, you have to be 100% clear if this job is something for you. Think about both the pay and that you will be location independent.
