If you have a flair for writing, are a creative thinker and have top-notch analytical skills, this is the opportunity for you. Rocket Lawyer is looking for a full-time staff member to manage our op-ed publication, Article 3 ( www.article-3.com ) and serve as primary contact for our public relations (PR) activities.

Recognized on the Inc 500 list, Rocket Lawyer is the world’s fastest growing online legal services company. Based in San Francisco, we are building a world class team that is creating an affordable and simple way for consumers and small businesses to deal with any legal matter -- from free and affordable documents to attorney consultations for any legal situation. Article 3, the company’s op-ed publication, is a new platform for explanation, exploration, and opinion sharing. We look at politics, society, law and tech and ask why things are they way that they are, and how they should be. While everyone has an opinion on what’s going on, our goal is to ask the right questions and join in debate without shouting (at least not all the time), recognizing that there are already plenty of places to engage in loud arguments in a polarized world.

  • Degree in History, Politics, English, Journalism, Law or related field preferred
  • 2-5 years web-writing and public relations experience preferred
  • Excellent research skills
  • Keen attention to detail
