Our Beaver Code


We’re a content company first and foremost, so we need our Beavers to have stellar writing skills. Whether the project involves writing web pages, proofreading a passage, editing extracts, or translating texts, our linguists have a way with words and a skill for storytelling in their native language that’s sure to make our clients’ copy stand out.


Did you know that beavers inspect their lodge nightly to ensure that it stays in tip-top condition? We appreciate that same level of attention to detail. Besides great writing, we look for Beavers who have a meticulous – perhaps even pedantic – approach to ensure the final product satisfies the brief down to its most minute detail, whether that’s around what the copy contains or the formalities we’ll need you to follow.

Busy might be one of the first words you think of when we say ‘beaver’, but what really helps these industrious creatures build great things is their affinity for teamwork. Which is why we look for partners rather than employees. We build reciprocal relationships with all of our Beavers, so you’ll help us just as much as we help you.

We’re curious critters and love to ask questions. We like Beavers who are meticulous, take time to understand tasks and request more information if they need it. The more you know, the more likely you are to do a great job, so we’re always here and happy to resolve your queries.

The great thing about becoming a Beaver is that you also become your own boss. We don’t often hire any permanent employees – unless we’re recruiting for a specific position – but rather work with a network of efficient and enthusiastic experts who set their own schedules and manage their own workflow.

Yes. Our team of Beavers is fully remote, which means that you can work from the comfort of your own lodge – or someone else’s. We don’t mind if you feel like setting up a workspace in your own home office, a coffee shop or even a foreign country, just as long as you respect deadlines and communicate effectively with us.

We recognize that building a dam good career takes time and effort, and we reward our Beavers for their expertise. As each of our projects have different budgets and timelines, and require different skill sets, the rates we offer will depend on the complexity of the work and your expertise. All you need to do when filling out the application form is tell us about your qualifications and experience, as well as your rate per word and per hour, and we’ll be in touch if we find a project that’s a match.

Just like our adaptability in relation to where you work, we’re highly flexible when it comes to compensation. Whether you prefer PayPal, Payoneer, bank transfers or another method of payment, we can get your funds to wherever you are in the world.

If you’re eager to become a Beaver, you should fill out our application form. Access the form by clicking on ‘Apply Now!’ next to the relevant job opening. Remember to fill in all the fields and submit all of your documents – you’ll get bonus points if they’re in English. Unfortunately, we can’t accept any applications that are sent via our contact form or live chat.

If I can say one thing about The Happy Beavers, it's that they value their freelancers. I've been working as a remote translator and editor for the company for 2.5 years counting. They always bring in intriguing projects, allow flexibility in work hours, and rescheduling on short notice when necessary has never been a problem.
