Proposal Writer
Long-term Freelance Opportunity

Sitka Technology Group is looking for an experienced proposal writer to join our team as an independent contractor/freelancer. The proposal writer will be instrumental in creating highly-competitive, winning proposals by working closely with Sitka staff to formulate our proposal strategy, gather and format information, write drafts, obtain approvals, and submit the official response.

This role will use a variety of resources to accomplish these tasks, including product expert interviews, marketing and sales collateral, proposal templates, past proposals, industry websites, bid service, and other available resources. The proposal writer will work closely with senior management who are key team members responsible for delivering the commitments outlined in the response.

We don’t expect this role to create great proposals on their own but rather be a key facilitator who will leverage in-house domain expertise from other team members. There is potential for this role to transition into a full or part-time position in the future.
