Job Description

Do you consider yourself an expert at Hiking, Backpacking & Camping? Do you spend more time in the great outdoors than you do with your family? Do your friends constantly come to you as their first port of call for all things camping-related? And do you love writing and blogging?

If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, then read on.

We’re looking for a remote content writer with experience creating content on the great outdoors. You will use researching, writing, and editing skills to produce expert-level articles on assigned topics.

  • Create engaging content on a variety of topics
  • Stay on trend with new insights for techniques to share and enhance best practices
  • Implement editors’ feedback to your existing content
  • Meet with your editors 1:1 and attend group team meetings

About Scane Media and My Open Country

We’re Scane ApS, a media company based out of Copenhagen, Denmark that runs a number of US-focused content websites and are lucky to be supported by employees around the globe. We’re looking for a content writer who can help us expand our outdoor websites, principally My Open Country.

We’re making a big push to ensure that the site has a bright and promising future, and you’ll be a huge part of making that happen. Thanks to the quality of our publishing, My Open Country has already been featured by leading publications and outdoors brands worldwide, including KOA, Wikihow, PBS, How Stuff Works, Bustle, Popular Mechanics, Outside Online, Nature, Space, Xero Shoes, The Trek amongst others!!

This is an exciting opportunity to write about the thing you love most—Hiking, Camping & Backpacking!  Whether you’re a hobbyist or consider yourself a pro on the topic, we want you to write for us. You’ll be covering a wide range of topics, including the wider outdoor genre in general.

For this, we need a true expert—no fakers here, please! If you don’t truly have a passion for hiking, camping & backpacking, it’s not going to work, I’m afraid.
