Are you a content writer & digital marketer looking for your next opportunity?
Bean Ninjas is on the cusp of another period of high growth. We spent 2018 building up our team and refining our systems and processes.
Now we’re looking for a special someone to come onboard and help us to scale Bean Ninjas to the next level. We have big goals and we’re aiming to double our revenue in the next 18 months.
What is in it for you?
If you want to learn and grow in a results oriented, high performance team then this is the job for you!
You’ll have a seat at the table for key business decisions and will work closely with Bean Ninjas founder and CEO Meryl Johnston and other senior team members.
Under Meryl’s leadership the business has grown from 0 to a team of 15 in the last 3 years.
This is a newly created role within Bean Ninjas which you can make your own.
You’ll be joining Bean Ninjas on the verge of a period of high growth, so there is an opportunity to build your own track record with the growth results you achieve.
The team behind Bean Ninjas is positive, fun, and fast moving. People who are able to learn quickly and add to this environment will succeed.
This role can be done from anywhere in the world as long as you are able to align with the Australian timezone.
What does your future look like?
We see content as a key foundation in our marketing strategy at Bean Ninjas.
The intention is that you will develop your writing and marketing skills and this will evolve into a marketing manager role.
To assist with this development we will support you in learning skills such as:
- Paid ads
- Marketing strategy
- Live events
- Social media
Who are we?
Bean Ninjas are a forward thinking bookkeeping, reporting and financial education company.
We specialize in online businesses including coaches / consultants, bloggers, freelancers / agencies / SaaS and eCommerce and our mission is to create financial freedom through stress free business finances for our clients.
We are a group of positive individuals who embrace change and are striving to improve. We love keeping fit and healthy, travelling and generally having fun. We are a distributed team of 15 and also have small offices in Australia, Europe and United States.
Check out Ep 1 on the Bean Ninjas Podcast to hear about our backstory and how we launched the business in 7 days.
Our 3 Years in Review post also gives a good overview of the business.
Our core values are Freedom, Always Growing and Trust.
Freedom reflects our goal to create freedom of time and location as well as financial freedom for our clients, our team and our community. We live out this value by choosing not to have set office hours or work locations. We value results rather than time spent sitting in the office and we encourage our team members to control their own schedule and to choose where they live in the world.
Always Growing refers to our belief that we need to strive for improvement in both our business and personal lives. We encourage learning, trying new things and open and honest feedback.
Trust is our third value and comes down to having integrity and building long term trusted relationships within our team, our clients and community.

We believe in developing our team and promoting internally. You will go through an initial 3 month training program and will then receive ongoing training and mentoring. We prepare individual staff development plans for each team member to help in achieving career goals.
Bean Ninjas are recognised as industry leaders. You will be working alongside team members who have come from top tier firms such as Ernst and Young, BDO and Grant Thornton.
What is the position like and what skills do I need?
Writing is key to being effective in this role. As well as embracing the creative side of writing you are also data driven and like backing up marketing results with data.

You’ll be paid a monthly rate which is negotiable based on experience and we’ll also cover your rent while you are on the Gold Coast. We’ll complete a salary review after the first 12 months.
This is not a side-hustle, we will need your absolute full attention. Sometimes you will work long hours or need to take early or late calls.
