Who we are
We're building a prayer and meditation app. One that is authentically Christian and Catholic, while at the same time a resource for anyone looking to grow deeper in a relationship with God. We believe that people are hungry for peace, and that there is no surer way to find it than by learning to sit in silence with Christ: “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” (Mt 11:28).
Our goal is to build something truly great. Something that combines the beauty of the Church’s spirituality with world-class product and content execution.
We launched the app in December of 2018 and have been blown away with the incredible growth & traction. Hallow has been downloaded over 15 million times with over 250,000 5-star reviews. We're blessed to be backed by some of the best mission-driven investors in the world and are excited to build out the team to help a lot more folks grow closer to God.
We are a startup. We move quickly and take big swings. We are a small and fast moving team and each person is responsible for making an impact. It is hard work, but also deeply meaningful. We’d be honored & humbled if you’d consider joining us.
Tldr: We're looking for a lifecycle marketing and social media contractor to help us write world-class marketing content and build continue to reach individuals in our English markets through Instagram, Facebook, and beyond.

What You'll Do

  • Plan & Collaborate: You’ll work cross-functionally within the Marketing Team and across the wider company - working across social media and lifecycle marketing channels (email, push, SMS). You’ll also work closely with the Content and Design teams to plan content calendars and strategize in line with the release calendar.
  • Project Manage: You’ll help maintain and strategize our social media and lifecycle marketing channels. You’ll create briefs regularly and strategize messaging and art direction.
  • Social Media Marketing & Copywriting: You’ll write copy for our social posts, emails, push notifications, and other marketing channels to reach our community and welcome new folks in. You'll help engage and communicate with our most important audiences across all channels.
  • Trends: Stay up to date with the latest trends, technologies, and best practices in our space.

What You'll Love

  • Mission: This work is incredibly humbling. Every day we hear amazing stories and we get the pleasure of working on something that’s impacting lives.
  • Ownership: You’ll play a central role in crafting copy and strategy in our social media and lifecycle marketing channels, reaching millions of folks week after week.
  • Growth: You’ll be part of a fast-paced marketing team at a start-up. Each week looks different! Over the next couple of years, we plan to expand the company significantly, and we’ll need your help to set the tone for how we’ll continue to reach folks all over the world.
  • Flexibility: HQ will be in Chicago but we are a remote company and marketing team. We’re super flexible with location/hours; we don’t care when you work, just that it gets done.
  • Comp: We will pay competitive market rates for this hourly position. This position will be between 5-10 hours/week.

What We're Looking For

  • Passion: First & foremost, we’re looking for someone excited about our mission. It makes it a lot more fun :)
  • Creativity: We’re always looking for ways to reach people and help them grow closer to God. The social media landscape is constantly changing, and we want to find ways to stand out and help folks find God’s peace. You’re not afraid to share ideas and try new things, while also leaning into the data side of things!
  • Experience: Experience in writing for marketing campaigns, social copy, and working in LCM and social media strategy. Bonus if you have experience + knowledge in writing about theology and the Church, experience building email campaigns in CRM platforms, or working in project management software systems.
  • Detail-oriented: Copywriting is in the details but also the big picture. You pay attention to details and nuances but know when to step back and look at the greater story.
  • Technical Abilities: Experience with Google Apps (e.g. Google Docs and Google Sheets), computer savvy, and a general willingness to learn new tools!
  • Grit: We really care about what we’re doing & try to build as fast as we can. Since we’re guiding meditation and competing with some large players in the market (Calm, Headspace), we have to stand out. Everything we do, say, send, or spend money on should be top-notch quality and set Hallow apart as the best.
We are honored that you'd consider joining the team and look forward to connecting with you.
Best,
