We are a family of graduates with one mutual goal: Help students graduate!

Apart from the German market, Scribbr is active in nine other languages. Every month we help more than 5 million students around the world with our Proofreading & Editing services, the Scribbr Plagiarism Checker, the APA Citation Generator, and more than 1,000 articles in our Knowledge Base.

 About the job

We’ve already published hundreds of articles and videos that help students get to grips with research, writing and citation. But we’re constantly working to improve the Knowledge Base and grow our audience.

That’s where you come in! Your challenge is to bring the Knowledge Base to the next level, helping us become the go-to resource for students at every stage of their academic journey. Working closely with the English content lead, you’ll identify improvements, plan topics, and publish new articles each week.

The goal is to create the most helpful academic content on the internet – that means explaining complex rules and concepts in simple language, along with clear examples that show exactly how it’s done. Your work will be read and appreciated by hundreds of thousands of students every month.

You will ...

  • Write educational articles on topics like Bachelorarbeit, Zitieren, or Methodik, and working with scholarly sources.
  • Critically analyze existing content and make improvements, from small tweaks to full rewrites.
  • Make sure every category is consistent, cohesive, and factually correct.
  • Come up with your own topic ideas, analyze keywords, and plan new categories.
  • Delegate topics and give feedback to other writers.
  • Track your content’s performance using SEO tools and Google Analytics.
  • Moderate comments and respond to students’ questions.

As you grow in this role, you’ll take ownership of the Knowledge Base and manage the publishing process, recruiting and training new writers to support our content goals. You’ll have the chance to contribute innovative ideas and work on your own projects to make the Knowledge Base even better. 🚀

  • have experience of writing a master’s or PhD thesis
  • are familiar with academic writing conventions, citation practices, and research methods
  • are enthusiastic about education and eager to help students succeed
  • enjoy diving into new topics and learning them inside out
  • are attentive to detail and obsessed with quality
  • are comfortable giving and receiving constructive feedback
  • are tech-savvy and quick to learn your way around new tools
  • are excited to learn, grow, and take ownership of your role
  • live in or around Amsterdam
