Freelance/Part-time Science Writer


Clue helps everyone who menstruates to understand their bodies—and to be empowered by that knowledge. Our vision is to enable women and people with cycles to live in tune with their biology, not in spite of it.

Founded by Ida Tin, Clue is a VC backed startup based in Berlin helping over 13 million people each month get insights into their reproductive health via our Android and iOS Apps. We collaborate with world-leading universities and institutes to advance female health research with our dataset, and deliver essential education about health, periods, and sex via our website,

At Clue we embrace a culture that values everyones’ uniqueness and lets them flourish as an individual. We are constantly working on creating an environment which provides equal opportunities, regardless of your ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, race, religion, and any other diverse backgrounds. As a part of our team, your unique set of talents will always be appreciated and we’re committed to provide them with a nurturing and safe environment.


The Content Team at Clue works closely with most parts of the company, whether that be Product, Brand, Marketing or Science. We write, edit and review content that spans across various themes and topics, while remaining focused on the core message of the Content Team: informing and empowering the reader to make their own menstrual and reproductive health choices. While most of our scientific content lives in our ‘Encyclopedia’ at, we also write a monthly newsletter, are active on many social media channels, create content for app features, and have an in-app content tab.
