ABOUT US

Bestow is the leading digital platform for life insurance. As both a direct-to-consumer destination and an infrastructure provider, Bestow is on a mission to make life insurance accessible to millions of underserved families. 

We ideate fast, embrace change, and take risks. As a rapidly growing tech startup, we look for the best talent out there and try to stay out of their way. From scaling our business model to expanding our offerings, the day-to-day at Bestow offers endless professional growth opportunities. The people who succeed here look for problems and solutions.

We're looking for a performance-obsessed Content Writer who is quick to become a subject-matter expert, is innately curious, and sweats the small stuff. Clarity and brevity are your north stars. You can tailor the same information to different audiences with ease. 

As a writer’s writer, you understand craft, empathy, and stepping out of your tone and into a brand’s. You are as experienced and skilled in short-form bullets as long-form narratives. 

We’re growth-focused, with a strong emphasis on brand tone. Our ideal candidate isn’t waiting around for briefs with granular instructions and complete personas, but digging into the work we’ve already done and asking, “can this be better?” This is an excellent opportunity for a writer who is ready to stretch their skills and share their expertise. 

We’re collaborative, challenge each other to be more creative, and share the same goal: let’s get financial protection to more families. Part of the start-up life is to test and learn, and we’re hungry to keep seeing more wins.

If you’re looking to bring your talent to a mission-driven company in ways that help it to grow and expand its reach, then this might be the role for you!

An Insider's view of Bestow

What are some social events your company does?

Last year Bestow sent everyone a make your own cocktail kit for a company-wide happy hour to help us keep in touch while we work remotely! We also have a slack channel for people who are interested in getting randomly introduced to a new member of the channel each week. It’s a great way to meet new hires and catch up with old pals.
