About Orchard

Orchard is radically simplifying the way people buy and sell their homes. For the average American, the home purchase and sale process takes months, creates anxiety, and is filled with uncertainty and hassle. Orchard has reimagined the end-to-end experience of buying and selling, from innovative home search tools to find the perfect home to the ability to buy a new home before selling your current one. Orchard customers manage the entire experience through a personalized online dashboard, while also getting the support of best-in-class Orchard real estate agents.

Headquartered in New York City with an office in Austin and teammates across the US, Orchard has over 400 employees and growing. We have financing from top-tier investors including Revolution, Firstmark, Accomplice, Navitas and Juxtapose, who have also backed the likes of Pinterest, Airbnb, Shopify and Sweetgreen. We're proud to be recognized by Crain's, Inc. 5000, Glassdoor, and Built In on their lists of best places to work.

About The Role

Orchard is looking for a Content Writer who will help write a library of best-in-class educational content on all things real estate. You’ll turn out copy that is accessible, easy-to-parse, and engaging, while also incorporating SEO best-practices to help drive traffic to the website and generate leads for the company. This is a chance to actively engage in content strategy, and an excellent opportunity to get a foothold into SEO marketing — or further refine those skills and apply them strategically.

This is a full-time role that will report into the Content Managing Editor, with the option to be remote in the following locations: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, MA, MD, NC, NJ, NY, OR, SC, TN, TX, VA, WA, or WI.

What You’ll Do Here:

  • Research, write, and edit 15 to 20 pieces of explainer content and data-based articles per month on homebuying, home-selling, and homeownership
  • Update and optimize older articles with links and sources to ensure accuracy to improve quality and overall search rankings
  • Work cross-functionally with the greater marketing teams and collaborate creatively on new marketing materials
  • Be regarded and referred to as a subject matter expert on real estate, both internally and externally

We’d Love to Hear From You if You Have:

  • At least 2 years of professional writing experience. Real estate knowledge is helpful, but not required
  • Ability to conduct research and simplify complex topics for broad audiences
  • Familiarity with SEO best practices, or a willingness to learn
  • Track record of meeting deadlines and producing a high volume of quality content
  • Proof you’re a fast learner. We don’t expect you to come to the table knowing the details of our industry, but we need someone who can take that knowledge and build on it.
  • A desire to work autonomously. You’re comfortable operating with minimal direction and the creative freedom that comes with it
