Content Writer

Escalon Services - Palo Alto, CA

Full-time

About Us
The founders of Escalon Services have all started, run, and exited multiple businesses. We once felt the pain of a fragmented back office, one that’s been cobbled together with multiple vendors.We know firsthand the frustration of entrepreneurs who are trying to change the world but are getting bogged down by the unending demands of trivia – paying bills, sending out invoices, running payroll and finding the right insurance. We’ve also held executive positions in large corporations like GE, HP, and McKinsey & Company. So we knew that corporations had the luxury of having their essential services run smoothly in the background.

Escalon Services is seeking an ambitious, knowledgeable writer and editor with a deep knowledge of the tech scene and start-up world. We’ve got big dreams in the coming year and we’re looking for a content creative who will be at forefront of making them come true. We’re looking for team members that are passionate about supporting small, growing businesses so they can get back to the work they need to do change the world.
