Copywriter [Contract] at Smule
Remote / United States of America

Open to Remote in US

The Smule mission is to connect people all over the world through the joy of making music at massive social scale. Music is much more than just listening… It's about creating, sharing, discovering, participating, and connecting with people. It is a social network with the power to break down barriers, touch souls and bring people together from all over the world.

In 2008, we set out to create apps that enabled anyone to create, discover, love and enjoy music. Today, 1.5% of the world's population (that's 125 million people and counting) have used Smule's apps. And they are creating communities, meeting new like-minded friends, and having fun making music together on Smule. 

So if you wake up humming, play a mean air guitar or anything in between, then Smule is for you―anyone can do it, no previous experience required.
