Who Are You?
You love words like cats love laser pointers. You won't chase them up a wall, but you'll hunt until you've got the perfect ones cornered. You're as comfortable writing editorial copy as you are tweets and status lines. You can write in silence or the middle of a parade. You believe in the Rule of Three. You're a student of the craft. You're a copywriter with every fiber of your being, and we want your pens and pencils writing for us.
What We Need
We want passion. We want excitement. We want you to wake up, get dressed, and come to the office ready to roll. It's brainstorm day so we need your energy and insanity. But also your ideas. Especially your ideas. You'll bounce them off your co-workers and be receptive to feedback from planners, designers, art directors, creative directors, strategists, and maybe even the guy with the fedora. Who knows what the day will bring?
Beyond the big meetings, you'll be a part of small meetings and medium-sized ones, too. There's also time for you to sit at your desk, fire up the brain, and start spinning social copy for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, pitch decks, video scripts and more. Or less if the day is slow. Either way, we encourage you to get out and take a culinary tour of the neighborhood. Lunch, after all, is one of the three most important meals of the day.
