This isn’t an entry-level position. You need to have proven professional writing chops.

Feel for the audience. Speak human. 
Work in close collaboration with art directors and a broader team. Take direction gracefully. 
Deftly and thoughtfully handle short-form copy, headlines, direct mail, email, subject lines, web copy. 
Help develop strategy for Ionger-form thought leadership (guides, white papers) and do the writing as well. 
Tiebreaker qualities include article writing, video experience, presentation skills and the ability to play editor to other writers. 


Desired experience and qualifications:

5+ years professional writing experience in journalism, marketing or strategic communications, with the clips to back it up
Experience with—and enthusiasm for—working collaboratively with an editor
Expertise in Microsoft Office, experience with Adobe Creative Suite and G Suite and the ability to string coherent sentences together using a Mac
A definitive point of view on the Oxford Comma (long live the Oxford Comma!), accompanied with a willingness to work with clients that may necessitate the alternate perspective
