Content Marketer for a growing ecommerce company
Website Spy Guy
DC MEMBER The Dynamite Circle (the DC) is an exclusive community of more than 1,200 established entrepreneurs.
This is a great opportunity for someone who loves to write, wants to get into content marketing and is looking for their first location independent job. You’ll be the first marketing hire, receive mentorship from the founder and have an opportunity to grow and work on a lot of different projects being one of the first 5 employees in the company.
Allen Walton has been working in the spy and surveillance industry since 2009.
In 2014, he made the leap to start his own business after reading a few books including The Four Hour Workweek. And, Spy Guy was born.
He created Spy Guy to bring transparency and great customer service to people who need products from an industry, where the big players can be shady, confusing and sometimes downright unethical.
To date, we’ve worked with over 60,000 customers from private investigators and department stores to Fortune 500 companies, local police departments and even the FBI.
Spy Guy has even been featured on Forbes, Tim Ferriss’ blog, CBNC, Fast Company, CBS and Entrepreneur.
What’s the opportunity?
We’re looking for our first marketing hire – a content marketer.
This role is ideal for someone entrepreneurial, who is either just getting started as a marketer or is looking to make a career transition perhaps from a 9-5 office job to a more flexible, remote role.

You’ll find there’s plenty of upside and growth opportunities from learning the content marketing ropes to understanding brand building, PR, online marketing and ecommerce.
