About you
  • Who you are is just as important as (if not more important than!) what you can do.
  • You’ re insatiably curious. About the world. About technology. About art, literature, music, gaming, sports, and a host of other things.
  • You’ re a connoisseur of culture, both pop and not, because the more you know about the world, the better equipped you are to disrupt it.
  • You’ re obsessed with words and writing. You’ ve probably wanted to hug a sentence.
  • You possess a genuine passion for work – yours or anyone else’ s – that elicits a visceral reaction.
  • You’ re a storyteller learning to harness the power of a captivating narrative.
  • You love strategy and know strong concepts with lots of legs need a solid strategic foundation to stand on. Without the why, there is no what.
  • You believe in a team-first mentality and recognize the value of collaborating with other creatives and other disciplines.
  • You’ re not afraid to ask questions or request help, but are resourceful enough to try figuring it out for yourself first.
  • You are full of ideas and challenge yourself to bring interesting ones to the table even when no one asks for them.
  • You’ re equally excited by the challenge of writing a short headline or explaining a concept for a never-been-done-before experience.
  • You know more is more when it comes to copy options. But you also know the practice of self-editing is an important part of prepping for internal and external reviews.
  • You never sacrifice clarity in favor of cleverness. But you live for that sweet spot.
  • You know the rules of proper grammar and when to bend or break them.
  • Your thick skin is impenetrable and you see constructive criticism as an opportunity to think differently and continue to challenge yourself.
  • You have a perspective and you voice it with confidence.
  • You’ re anxious to get out of your comfort zone and onto productions and client meetings.
  • You thrive in a fast-paced environment with tight timelines and varying levels of pressure.
  • Your teammates can count on you to deliver solid concepts and well-written work on time and in the appropriate format.
  • You bring good vibes and good old-fashioned fun to work every day.
  • You’ re driven by a need to beat your own best.

 

About the role
  • Like you, this job is multidimensional. And every aspect is crucial to creating culturally relevant work.
  • Write everything from headlines to scripts to presentations. Anything and everything that helps bring your ideas to life.
  • Establish and execute against messaging strategies from conception to completion.
  • Obsess over the style guide for our company and our clients and uphold it daily.
  • Work closely with the Creative Director, other copywriters, and art directors to create cohesive and successful award-winning ideas and work.
  • Deck ideas so well that you don’ t have to say a word to sell them. But definitely still talk or else it’ s awkward.
  • Progress > perfection. Share progress with your manager early and often, accept feedback and continue to make the idea better.
  • Be receptive to feedback and edits, but not afraid to defend ideas and executions you believe deliver on the brief.
  • Learn from every project. Use the results to make the next one even more incredible.
  • Able to switch projects at a moment’ s notice and keep audience and tone of voice top of mind.
  • Contribute to an open, honest, judgement-free environment where team members feel valued and empowered.
  • Speak to the heart as much as the mind because emotions drive transactions.

 

About the requirements
  • You’ ve got to check the boxes before you can think outside of them.
  • Bachelor’ s Degree in advertising, marketing, communications, journalism, or a related field preferred.
  • 1-4 years of agency and/or in-house creative experience.
  • Strong conceptual chops with an online portfolio of smart and exciting work that shows a range of conceptual and tactical executions.
  • Bonus: Experience working on retail (digital, physical and/or experiential)
  • Passionate, positive, and solution-oriented.
