Copywriter

Position

Using words to give people feels.

About us:

We work for the creative gods. 

Our studio is composed of people united by one idea – if we’re going to put work out into the world it better mean something – it better be funny, moving, insightful, witty or beautiful. Because for us, design and advertising aren’t inert. They are deeply powerful forces that help us understand our world, but also to shape it. It’s lofty rhetoric we fall short of multiple times a day, but our team agrees, failing at this is better than succeeding at anything else. And we guess it’s an idea that’s resonated with some other people, because we’re a fast-growing little shop, and right now we’re on fire. We want to invite someone to come be part of this place, someone inspired by our mission who feels compelled to be a part of it.

About the gig:

You love an awesome alliteration and loathe non-sequiturs. Grammar fills you with a secret sense of glee, and some of your best friends live in books. You should be well-versed in the written word in all its forms, from the pithy one-liner to the long copy expose. You should have at least a few years of advertising or relevant experience under your pen and a desire to be part of a quickly growing, creatively obsessed team. You should have big brand experience, some brass on the trophy shelf and the deep-seated knowledge that your best work is still in front of you. But what we care most about is your vision -- how you see the world, where you draw inspiration from; you are in the truest sense of the word, a creative. You do this work because, like us, you couldn’t survive without it.

Qualifications:

  • 2+ years of experience in a Copywriter role 
  • You’ve created and/or contributed to award-winning campaigns, branding and digital experiences.
  • You should be fluent in all the mediums -- from pithy one-liners to campaign platforms we’re looking for a conceptual writer who has written scripts for radio and television but also feels good about crafting web copy and social posts. 
  • Your skills don’t stop at the written word, you appreciate art in all its forms and can speak to photography styles, cinematography, illustration and type. 
  • You’re a natural communicator who is comfortable presenting ideas both internally and with clients.
  • You are fearless and relentless when it comes to the work and empathetic when it comes to people.
