Online shopping has changed. Today’s eCommerce runs on selling products, not brands. SamCart is the first e-commerce platform built from the ground up for direct-to-consumer brands.

SamCart is looking for a talented Content Writer to join our team. We’re a company founded and run by marketers. Great content and clear communication are integral to who we are and how we operate. In true startup fashion, you’ll produce a range of assets for all channels and audiences in our growing network. You’re an awesome three-way smash-up of fresh ideas, clear communication, and prolific production.
