  • Translate complicated concepts, government policies, and legalese into blissfully jargon-free copy that makes sense
  • Collaborate with designers, videographers, engineers, marketers, project managers, and stakeholders on a daily basis
  • Juggle multiple projects on fast-moving schedules
  • Quickly adapt to last-minute asks and changing timelines with flexibility and good humor
  • Own creative projects and tasks with guidance and support from senior leads

Must Haves:

  • 2-5 years experience writing for an established consumer brand
  • Ability to nimbly balance brand voice with marketing strategies
  • A conceptual mind that considers not just copy, but design and visuals
  • Deep allegiance to AP Style
  • Ability to multitask and prioritize in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment
  • Ability to understand and discuss paid media strategies, metrics, and results
  • A collaborative, proactive mindset
  • Detail-oriented: Nothing slips past your eagle eyes
  • An online portfolio
  • Ability to address delicate issues with sensitivity and empathy
  • Humor and jazz hands

Nice to Haves:

  • Copy editing experience
  • Experience writing for an ESL audience
  • Product experience: You can take complex product stories and bring them to life in clear, concise ways. Familiarity with keyword placement and other SEO best practices
