Watchman is a cyber security startup building high-tech monitoring platforms, aimed at the highly vulnerable SME/SMB sector. We are in the early Seed stage, our first product, sitewatch, is preparing for launch, and we are actively seeking further investment and funding. Combining 24/7 security and performance monitoring for websites, plus expanding AI/Machine learning capabilities, sitewatch will be our flagship product, and the first of an integrated suite of tools.
We believe we have a strong commercial potential, a focused mission, and an open market among SME businesses who are operating online, including retail e-commerce, hospitality, healthcare, and that our potential customer base is global. Existing peer and competitor platforms cannot keep up with the growth and many current market players are overpriced, limited in functionality or very difficult for users to administer and configure.
Watchman’s progress to date:
- 2 co-founders, 3 Directors, total team of 13
- Support from Innovate UK
- Launching a pilot with live users in August 2021
- Have undergone a substantial financial forecasting process
- Initiating conversations with Seed and VC investors
We are looking for:
Our vision is to create safer online spaces for everyone. Right now, our focus is on providing effective and accessible cyber security for all businesses. Not just large corporations or those who can afford large IT teams.
A key part of that mission is education and awareness. We want to make cybersecurity easy to understand and to keep our audience informed of the latest threats (and how to protect against them).
We’re looking for content writers to contribute to our knowledge and news platform, Watchman Insider, on a regular basis.
You don’t need to be a cyber security expert. Our audience isn’t. But an interest in the subject will help.
Unfortunately, we are not yet in a position to offer remuneration. That said, we are serious about the imminent growth of the company, and our hope is that your involvement would become more permanent. We ought to be in a position to discuss formal employment towards the end of 2021. We’re looking for individuals willing to get stuck-in, part-time or full-time, who believe in the long term potential of Watchman.
We are currently all working remotely.
- Content writing
- Ability to contribute regularly
- Language skills desirable but not required
