This job listing is live, but we’re on holiday break until Jan 3rd. We will respond to your application after that date!

Intro

Paperlike is seeking a part-time content creator to help us launch our presence on TikTok. In this role, you'll be responsible for all TikTok content and for managing the entire account. With the freedom to make creative decisions, you'll have a direct and massive impact on Paperlike's social media presence and growth.

Why Paperlike?

  1. Leave your mark on the company: the team at Paperlike is small, which means each of us plays a critical role that affects the company's direction. As the TikTok content creator, you're going to be critical in bringing creativity and growth to our social media presence.
  2. Join an incredible team: besides the fact that our team is highly talented, we also genuinely care about one another's well-being. We're hard-working but relaxed; results-oriented, yet curious explorers at the same time.
  3. Work remotely with a flexible schedule: we're a 100% remote company, with employees and contractors all over the globe.
  4. We're profitable and investment-free: Paperlike is profitable since the beginning (2017), and we've never taken any equity investment. All our ventures are funded through product sales, and we have a high affinity towards crowdfunding. That means no external pressure to reach unrealistic numbers. No need to endlessly grow. We focus on the products we're good at and that we enjoy.

What will you do as the Paperlike TikTok Creator?

  1. Content Distribution Create clever and trendy videos that repurpose our blog content for our target audiences (iPad creatives and notetakers) on TikTok. We create tons of high-quality articles that are great sources of inspiration for TikTok content.
  2. Community Building We've got a great community of followers on Instagram that we've built over the past few years, and we know people are talking about and using Paperlike on TikTok. Your job will be to engage, build and grow the Paperlike community on TikTok. Creating and posting interesting content that is relevant to our target audiences is critical, but so is making genuine connections with the community! You'll be responsible for responding to comments on our TikTok videos as well.

Who will you work with?

  • Chloe, Community Manager. Chloe will be your main point of contact on a weekly basis. She takes care of all our social channels (but feels too old to be on TikTok).
  • Ryan, Content Director. Ryan leads the content marketing team, which includes social media. In some cases you'll work directly with him, and he will contribute to the overall TikTok strategy and desired KPIs, but this will be on a less regular basis.
  • Theresa, Partnerships Manager. Theresa works with our affiliates and is involved in a lot of creator and brand collaborations, including on social media. She may reach out to work with you on occasion.

This role might be for you if...

  • You make πŸ”₯ TikTok content, and it's your favorite social media app.
  • You love digital notetaking and/or digital art. Either way, you must have an iPad and Apple Pencil and be ready and willing to create content focused on all things iPad-related.
  • You're outgoing and willing to "show up" on the internet. We don't necessarily need some who is "camera facing" but we will lean towards applicants who are willing to use their voice on camera and/or face the camera.
  • Creative video content comes naturally to you.
  • You're fluent in English and can communicate concisely in written English.
  • Bonus: you've worked on a remote team before. You'll be working with a team that's across multiple time zones, with our Social Media Manager located in New York. We'll expect you to respond to Slack and Notion messages within 12 hours.

Money, Time and Position Type

  • Pay is commensurate with experience
  • 10~ hours per week to start
  • Freelance position

Logistics:

  • You'll need your own tools for recording and creating videos including an iPad, Apple Pencil, and a phone for recording high-resolution videos.
  • We are asking potential hires to start with a test project. We will give you a piece of content (blog article) and ask you to create a TikTok video about the content. This is a paid project.
  • To apply, fill out the application form below. Tell us why you are the perfect person for this job and what you'd like to do with our TikTok channel! You'll be asked to create a short TikTok format video as part of your application.

Paperlike

Company Mission

At Paperlike, we believe less is more. We imagine a world where we can enjoy the benefits of digital tools without sacrificing the tactile feel of traditional tools like pen and paper. We aim to create products that allow creators and doers the ability to work from anywhere in a comfortable and natural way.

The Products

Paperlike offers three primary products:

  • The Paperlike is the iPad screen protector for creatives, students, and in general people who use their iPad professionally. Paperlike enhances the display surface to feel more like paper, especially when using the Apple Pencil. That gives the user more precision, better stroke resistance, and increased endurance when taking notes or drawing. We developed a special surface technology, which we call Nanodots, that combines the perfect paper-feel with minimal light-refractions, so the display remains as clear as possible.
  • The Paperlike Pencil Grips help Apple Pencil users achieve better focus and accuracy when drawing and writing. Created by award-winning product designer David Burkhardt. We offer two grips in one pack. One for maximum comfort, the other for maximum precision.
  • The Paperlike Cleaning Kit helps keep the Paperlike screen protector operating in peak condition.

Paperlike products are sold worldwide, via our Shopify site, as well as on Amazon and a growing number of physical retail stores.

The Company

Jan founded Paperlike 2017 as a side-business to solve his own need of a better iPad and Apple Pencil experience. Since he loves crowdfunding, he started one for the Paperlike and was blown away by the response. He soon left his job (actually he was fired, which is a funny story for another time) and made Paperlike a full-time endeavor. Jan grew the business quickly with minimal outside help, using laser focus and tons of automation.

Now in 2021, we're a team of about 20 people but, at the core, we still operate the same. We relentlessly focus on the things that matter and automate whatever we can to free our time and minds.

Our team is 100% remote and is spread all over the world. From New York to Germany and from Bulgaria to the Dominican Republic.

FAQ

What does the hiring process look like?

After submitting your application, qualified candidates will be invited to an initial interview. If we decide to move forward with you, you'll be given a paid test project followed by a final interview.

Why is this a freelance position?

Simply put, we're a German company and it's much easier to work across borders with the best candidates using the freelance structure. Actually, over half of our team works on a freelance basis. We're still one team and it doesn't feel like internal vs. external. If you NEED an employee contract, please let us know we'll try to find a way.
