What We Do
We help growing companies gain confidence in their finances. Paro matches businesses with the highest vetted bookkeepers, accountants, financial analysts, and CFOs who provide remote, on-demand, hourly support when clients need it. We only accept 2% of applicants into our highly curated network of experts, so clients know they’re working with the best of the best.

Position Overview
Paro is seeking an experienced content writer knowledgeable in business and finance for the Paro blog. Content writer need not be a subject matter expert, instead, we’re looking for an excellent writer and thorough researcher who can craft quality, long form blog posts.

Writers will be responsible for researching and writing posts, interviewing finance professionals from our network to create partner content, and generating case study content. Ideal candidates will be self-starters, technically proficient, and able to take initiative and manage their own timeline without requiring too much input.

What You'll Do

  • Write clear, concise content consistent with Paro's branded voice
  • Be able to create both short-form and long-form content, often on a short timeline
  • Interview financial professionals from our network to support blog content
  • Conduct thorough, high-quality research to supplement knowledge gathered from subject matter experts
  • Distill complex finance topics into concise, search optimized content
  • Collaborate and brainstorm with Marketing team members on a variety of projects
  • Create publish-ready content that requires little to no proofreading

Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Energetic! There are sales team members on the phone coaching business owners all over the office, small impromptu meetings are happening at standing desks and Poang chairs, someone is taking a break to attempt a cross-office nerf hoop shot or stretch out on a foam roller. There are snacks and breakfast is brought in on Monday and Friday!

Kristina McMenamin

Director of Content Marketing & Brand

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As we continue to build our platform we rely a lot on our sales and account management teams for feedback. Since the product works both internally and externally it is important that these teams take feedback from our clients and freelancers as well. This allows for us to continuously iterate on the product before each release.

Clint

VP of Engineering

What makes someone successful on your team?

They never settle, take smart risks, and do the right thing (always). We look for people who align with our values, who work hard and love being part of a team, who aren't afraid to take on a lot and learn as they go, who are scrappy and resilient. Oh, and big perks if you can grow an avocado pit into a plant.

Jon Rekpa

Director of Growth

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We recently introduced Paro Town Hall Meetings. The goal is to provide full transparency to the team on the direction we're headed and why we're headed there. I'm a firm believer that transparency and communication foster new ideas and enable everyone to solve complex problems more efficiently.

Michael

CEO

What does career growth look like on your team?

On my team, career growth can be summarized by one simple phrase: work hard for me, and I will work hard for you. If you come in every single day and work to better yourself, the team, and the company as a whole, I will do everything in my power to help accelerate your career.
