What is the role?

The role of tutorial content writer involves the research, development and creation of the initial concept briefs and subsequent scripts for Hut Six’s web-based security tutorials.

Working alongside the product director you will be tasked with researching technical details and case studies for new tutorials. You will be on the front line of our content creation efforts with your script being used by the graphics, animation and sound team to produce our industry leading e-learning content.

We are looking for someone who has a passion for e-learning, information security and the future of technology across all industries. Whilst the majority of tutorial content is developed in-house, candidates should also be comfortable working with clients to produce occasional bespoke pieces.

This role is ideal for someone who wants to utilise their writing skills to communicate the ever more complex world of cybersecurity in an efficient and effective manner to the everyday individual.

As the company grows and our training offering evolves the role will adapt to become more specialised into scripting multiple ending scenario-based tutorials. In a “Black Mirror Bandersnatch” style choose your own narrative experience.

We’re after someone with enthusiasm, a positive attitude, the capability to collaborate within a team structure and adapt to a frequently changing start-up environment.

What will you be doing?

  • Research industry-related topics (combining online sources, interviews, and studies)
  • Prepare well-structured drafts
  • Write clear, structured tutorial briefs to explain learning objectives using case studies
  • Proofread tutorial content or other copy before publication or voiceover recording
  • Identify customers’ needs and gaps in our training content and recommend new topics
  • Ensure all-around consistency in voice and tone of tutorial content
  • Update existing tutorial briefs and scripts as needed

What are we looking for?

  • Proven work experience as a Content Writer, Copywriter or similar role
  • Examples of published articles
  • Experience of research using multiple sources
  • Excellent writing and editing skills
  • Hands-on experience with Content Management Systems (e.g., WordPress)
  • Ability to meet deadlines
  • Proven experience in taking a project from concept through to completion
  • Ability to work to deadlines and at times under pressure, whilst producing high quality output.
  • An ability to assist the content creation team in developing visual narratives from scripts.
  • Previous experience working in a design studio, agency or in-house team.
  • Must be open, honest, direct and comfortable in giving and receiving constructive feedback
