Content Writer

Lights Out is building an in-house content team and we’re starting off with a Content Writer with a deep understanding of growing social channels (LinkedIn & Twitter) and definitely an inclination in product design. We’ll be accepting applications for the next few weeks, with a flexible start date between October-December.

About the Job

We work with high-growth consumer businesses in the consumer space. That means each of these businesses have a lineage of existence, data to bank on and some lofty visions that the founding teams or investors come with. Given that we’re a studio and not an agency, documenting our experiences and opinions is paramount for us. It’s for this reason that we’re building an in-house content team to work on experiential and growth centric content.

We’ll be using channels like LinkedIn & Twitter to talk about our experiences, podcasts (existing and new) to build relationships with interesting individuals and our newsletters to share our opinions. If these channels fundamentally excite you, you should totally hop on board.

You’ll be working with Lights Out’s core team along with some of our very talented friends around the globe. We do not shy away from collaborating or learning from the best in the Industry.

As a content writer you’ll set direction, take ownership, get down to writing, and plan growth without a lot of oversight. You’ll be able to communicate clearly with your colleagues, work across teams, and lend a helping hand when needed.


Here are some things we’ve put together to give you a sense of what you’ll be doing day-to-day :

◉ Understanding the business and founder vision and mapping it to a robust content strategy
Owning channels across LinkedIn & Twitter

◉ Researching on new topics around product design & thought leadership to contribute towards the newsletters & podcasts

◉ Creating weekly goals and smashing them with your content calendars

◉ Track relevant metrics that showcase growth of our social channels and content IP”s (newsletters & podcasts)

◉ Working on improving Lights Out core design processes

We have a hybrid working culture of remote & in-office working. If you’re applying from India, the profile would be based in office in Bengaluru.

About Us

At Lights Out, we are a bunch of people who before coming together, shared one thing in common – the desire to create amazing experiences (human, tech, brand, product) and passion for innovation. It was the premise of why we started working on brands & products and it remains non-negotiable when we onboard anyone new into the team. We design products to solve real-life problems. With everyone joining the team, we look for and emulate the following values:

◉ Ownership – Every aspect of what you do, who you are and how you work, needs to emulate the highest levels of ownership. We need you to #BeFuckingResponsible for everything that you do. The buck stops with you.

◉ Passion – We are in the field of design & creativity. Unless there’s passion for what you do, unless there’s every cell in your body which aspires to service a brand or product to perfection, we won’t be able to create great work. And that would defeat the purpose of our existence. So passion for us isn’t something that you bring to the table, it’s the reason why you would join a boutique team like us.

◉ Fairness & Integrity – While working with customers of all types, projects that take days to complete and results that are incomparable to what anyone could have imagined, you will be faced with a plethora of minor challenges, around staying true to yourself. And towards your team. It’s a value that would help you sail through our policies and our culture. It’s what would define who you are. And that’s why we want you in the team. This isn’t a value that you can develop over time, it’s something that you are bred with.

◉ Performance – We focus on the results and not a stickler for processes and structures. We look for high performing individuals who can not only move fast but move together.

It’s easy to write admirable values; it’s harder to live them. But unless you have these, you wouldn’t be able to enjoy your time here at Lights Out.

Benefits & Compensation

Lights Out has a more entrepreneurial mindset that we like to fuel into our team. The base salary for this position, depending on your experience would be anywhere between INR 6 to INR 8L per annum.

Benefits at Lights Out are all about helping you lead a healthy life outside of work. We believe quality time to focus on work starts with quality time to think, exercise, prepare a meal, be with family & friends, and of course, time to yourself.

We work 5-day work weeks, prefer you don’t schedule too many calls in one day, help you with medical insurance and don’t really have the concept of designated number of leaves. If you want a break, you take a break. Just manage your work, let your coworkers know and there’s no record of such leaves.

In addition, we offer incentives in two parts:

a.) For every new account you win or extend, for the quality of work you’ve done, you get a direct % of the revenue.

b.) We also have the policy of team incentives. The whole team takes a percentage of the yearly profits home, after a 1 year cliff in the company.
