Free Agency is on a mission to empower people to reach the highest levels of their career potential. We work with talent to break the information and process asymmetries holding them back from doing more, making more, and being more. We’ve raised over $15M from world-class investors like Maveron, Resolute Ventures, Bloomberg Beta, Kevin Durant and Rich Kleiman’s Thirty Five Ventures, Palm Tree Crew, and more.

Free Agency brings Hollywood-style career management to knowledge workers, starting with the tech industry. We provide concierge services and digital products to help people find incredible jobs, make more money, and become high-performing leaders. Unlike solutions in recruiting, we’re entirely paid by the talent we work with, which enables us to provide them with dedicated Talent Agents to manage “the business end” of their career. Talent success becomes our success.

To date, we’ve helped hundreds of professionals negotiate over $340 million in offers, and work with talent building the cutting-edge future in the startup and tech industry.

About the job:

We’re looking for someone who is either (1) super passionate about the startup and tech industry, and is interested in getting involved in media and content or (2) a deeply experienced and passionate media producer who could adapt to the startup and tech space.

You should be next-level dedicated to your work. Seriously, this isn’t for those seeking balance – we want obsessives who aim to be at the top .5% of their craft, and seek new challenges + learning daily. We do way too much every day, and want team members who live for that kind of energy.

You’ll help:

  • Drive creative vision and content strategy in close collaboration with the CEO
  • Secure and schedule top-notch guests for relevant shows + written content
  • Coordinate live streams and release schedules for podcast/video shows
  • Lead research and execution on strategy for content production + distribution
  • Handle workflows, deliver feedback, and coordinate freelancers across A/V and writing activity
  • Be present for live events (when relevant) in New York City
  • Maintain extraordinarily high standards of quality across content – we’re not kidding, the bar here is so high that people have quit over it, and we won’t lower it

This position will start with a contract month before converting to full-time. The full-time position will pay between $70,000 and $100,000, depending on level of experience, plus significant equity.

Why Free Agency matters:

Job search and career progression are broken. Candidates haphazardly apply to jobs, meet only a few companies, settle during offer negotiation, and generally don’t optimize the process of moving along in their careers. As a result, Free Agency believes that everyone is undercompensated.

That doesn’t just have to do with the money we make, but also the teams we’re a part of, the type of work we get to do, and the alignment to mission along the way. All of this has an impact on our own satisfaction, health, and financial wellness, but we don’t give it the attention it deserves.

By aligning incentives with individual talent, Free Agency is enabled to build first-of-their-kind products & services and define a new category of career management.
