Sail Community Capital helps small businesses raise money through their community via debt or equity offerings. We are seeking a content creator to translate our clients' stories into a prospectus that is easy for an investor to understand and tells a compelling story. Your primary duties include creation of visual prospectuses, slide decks, and content for multimedia marketing campaigns, and editing assets produced by other team members. Occasionally you may be asked to work on projects for Sail's sister company être. Typical projects might be creating copy for social media ads, developing email marketing campaigns, and branding for être as well as Sail.
