We are looking for a full time Junior Copywriter to join our growing team.

You’ll be responsible for:

  • Working directly with our creative director and other creative team members to lead and support ideation, develop original concepts, campaigns and commercials for our clients. We strive for big ideas that drive real results for our clients.
  • Writing cross-medium copy for our campaigns – scripts for commercials, social content, taglines, banner copy and more.
  • Ensuring our campaigns and commercials are engaging, consistent and that the selling message is clear throughout all related content.
  • Working with the new business team on building presentation materials and other client-facing materials.
  • Providing support during shoots to ensure scripts come to life in the best way.
  • Ensuring QA in all of our written materials – no typos get past you!

You must:

  • Have an insatiable appetite for coming up with ideas.
  • Have 2-5 years’ experience in a creative position (agency experience is a plus, but not at a requirement – our team members come from diverse backgrounds).
  • Be a grammar fanatic.
  • Be able to adjust and adapt your writing style to different brands, industry verticals, projects, audiences and tones. Like a chameleon. (We obviously need you in order to improve our metaphors.)
  • Have strong storytelling skills and be able to craft compelling stories under sometimes tight deadlines.
  • Be hungry to get your hands dirty in all facets and levels of advertising—some days you’re writing B2B email copy, some days you’re writing a script that’s going on TV.
  • Be excited to work in a small team where you have tons of responsibility and room to grow. We are not your typical agency and don’t intend to ever be.
  • And you should be an absolute self-starter with a get-the-job-done mentality.
