Founded three years ago, Unfiltered is an ambitious, global EdTech startup based between Auckland and New York City with ambitious plans to scale globally.

As a disruptor of the business learning landscape, our dream is to inspire business brilliance and be admired as the best business learning platform in the world. While our dream may be big, ambitious and bold, we genuinely believe we’re uniquely placed to achieve it. We’re on a very exciting journey and we’re literally only just getting started.

We believe that traditional business education is outdated, obsolete and ripe for disruption; that the bright future of the world will be built on the next generation of innovative, world-changing startups. Every day we obsess about how we can help founders and CEOs change the world.

Check us out here:

Founded by 22-year-old Co-Founders Jake Millar (CEO) ( and Yuuki Ogino (COO), Unfiltered has taken the world by storm. Featured in Forbes, NZ Herald,, Seven Sharp, Newshub, 1 News, NBR and countless other publications, Unfiltered has attracted attention from all corners of the globe.

We’ve interviewed over 250 of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs and business leaders including Sir Richard Branson (Founder, Virgin), Miguel McKelvey (Co-Founder, WeWork), Ian Wright (Co-Founder, Tesla), Don Valentine (Founder, Sequoia Capital), Shazi Visram (Founder, Happy Family) and Cal Henderson (Co-Founder, Slack) and have raised $2.2 million in venture funding from some of the world’s leading investors.

We have built our Unfiltered Live series into New Zealand’s most exciting and talked about event for entrepreneurs, and we work closely with over 20 Strategic Partners including BMW, PwC, NZTE, Eat My Lunch, Villa Maria Estate, AMP, DARKHORSE and Craigs Investment Partners to co-create content and deliver phenomenal brand experiences.

Now based between Auckland and New York City, Unfiltered is expanding from New Zealand into the U.S. market. With team members based in both cities and around the globe, we thrive off the opportunity to grow and scale a truly global company.

Our character is impactful, inspirational, disruptive, fast, brave, fun, open-minded and entrepreneurial, and we’re not afraid to take risks and try new things. We love to work hard, but we play hard too.

Life is too short to do anything other than what lights you up, so if Unfiltered sounds like an environment you might thrive in, read on. We are looking for a creative, edgy and ambitious copywriter to join us as a critical part of the content team.

Whilst the role will be on a project basis to start (6+ weeks), there will be an opportunity to move into a full-time role as a "Curator" of Unfiltered, effectively a fully-fledged Editor position responsible for crafting how our audience experiences our platform. 

What will you be doing?

The copywriter role will be a critical part of the content team, bridging the gap between world-class content with leading business leaders, entrepreneurs and executives, and a passionate audience.

Working closely with our Head of Research, you will be responsible for writing copy for hundreds of interviews, curating insights and advice into a format that people crave and with writing that will make people click.

The crux of the role will lie in a disruptive initiative yet to be revealed to the public, one that will revolutionise business learning on the platform.

You will work closely with the content team across the entire content production process, from interview scripting to how the user sees the final product.

The perfect person for this role will have a hunger to grow and succeed, will be creative and passionate and will take pride in their responsibility to drive key outcomes in the business.

Key attributes include:

  • Experience writing edgy and creative copy, preferably for business purposes

  • A love for compelling, lucid writing with a focus on the reader 

  • An understanding of, and passion for, business, entrepreneurship and startups

  • A thirst for knowledge, growth and education - you must have a strong desire to learn and grow as an individual, as this is what we are all about

  • A wealth of creative thinking with the ability to envisage the world as how it should be, not how it is

  • The ability and willingness to dedicate long hours to get the job done (hustle). Put simply, being a part of a startup is gruelling. If you're not thick-skinned, determined and hungry for success, meaning you're willing to work some intense hours at times, this is not for you

  • An active contributor to company culture

You'll have unlimited access to all of our content and live events, featuring some of the world’s greatest business leaders, and you will work alongside some phenomenal brands.

Startups are full of opportunity to learn and take on additional areas of responsibility, so there will be lots of opportunity to grow, progress and develop, especially as we expand globally.
