The Memo #22: (89+ remote jobs)

Hey folks,

I thought I’d step back and describe the plan for The Memo and make a case for why you should become a paying member. A few more housekeeping items than normal at the bottom, so definitely don’t skip that.

Why you should become a member

The future of work is changing but so too is the future of how we find work, how we build careers, and how we build our networks.

Recruitment platforms and job sites place an emphasis on the needs of the hiring company. The goal with The Memo is to build a career community specifically for the needs of remote workers.

Traditional recruitment firms charge companies a fee when a candidate is successfully matched. That fee can be significant. The goal with the career community that we’re building is to put that fee towards community-led side projects launched by our members.

Having a member-funded model allows us to align incentives with the community that we serve.

Paying members of The Memo get the following perks:

  • Founding member status

  • CV + cover letter review whenever you need it

  • Early access to each newsletter 

  • No ads ever

Other things being worked on for paying members:

  • Greater access to the community to help connect to your next position or build your next project with 

  • Partner discounts 

  • Connections to hiring startups 

  • A way to track career progress on a weekly basis

  • Digital events and networking opportunities with early-stage startups that recently raised capital

  • Tips to help maximize salary negotiations (3,200+ salary data points, thus far)

  • Lastly, we're working with a few early-stage start-ups to help source candidates. Our goal here is to take the referral fee and put that towards side projects launched by community members. Paying members will get a first opportunity to submit proposals and help others with their projects.

If you’re on the fence about what we’re building, don’t hesitate to reach out and I’m always available for a quick call to answer any questions. Email me

A few housekeeping items:

  • Meet members of the community 1-on-1: while we wait to launch our Slack group, I’ve decided to launch 1-on-1 chats with the community. This is an opportunity for founding members to chat with others with the community. You can talk about anything you like and you’ll be matched based on your interests. The first one will be next Friday (25th). If you’re interested meeting others in the community, fill out this form with your email and timezone and I’ll be in touch.

  • Seriously, if you haven’t already, add your CV here.

  • Want to be interviewed?: if you’re a founding member, send over a head shot and I’ll send over some Qs and we’ll publish portions of the interview on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and in the newsletter.

  • Engineering and Machine Learning roles: Petal, an NYC-based credit card company, is hiring for four engineering and machine learning roles. If you think you might be a fit and would like a connection to the hiring manager, reach out. Email me

  • Content marketing roles ($50k-$65k): Animalz, a content marketing agency for SaaS companies, hiring for several content roles (not included below). If you think you might be a fit and would like a connection to the hiring manager, reach out. Email me
