We want students to have the opportunity to attain higher learning in a manner that’s accessible, affordable, and fulfilling. Would you like to do the same?


Complexly is an educational video company operating for over 10 years. We’ve partnered with Arizona State University and YouTube to launch a new series called “College Foundations.” Composed of the foundational courses many students need to succeed in college, they’re fundamental courses made to be viewed on YouTube or as part of a Universal Learner Course at ASU.


As a freelance writer, you’re responsible for researching and writing scripts on American History, working closely with other team members and subject-matter experts to develop comprehensive and consistent scripts. Every script will receive critique and feedback from our partners and script editor until it’s refined enough for production. Being collaborative and open to feedback is essential. We put a lot of care into our work; it’s important for you to build thoughtful and empathetic narratives around the foundations of History.

This course will be focusing on early American history ~1490-1800. We are particularly interested in candidates with a History background, but all are welcome to apply.

If you’re interested, apply for this position by May 1, 2021.
