Job description

As a copywriter, you'll craft compelling, precise, and clear digital messaging that helps readers connect with our client and their products. You'll support fellow writers in doing the same, while collaborating with designers, developers, and account managers to create strong and effective projects.

You should care intensely about your work without conflating work ego with personal ego. While you'll be working closely with clients, our agency's integrated teams collaborate equally and share accountability, in failure and success alike.

Driven by creativity, curiosity, and problem-solving
 A strong and approachable communicator (including being an active, present listener)
 A wiz at tailoring communications to specific audiences
 Well versed in writing short- and long-form copy with clarity, nuance, and substance
 Able to find inspiration in—and bring enthusiasm to—both production work and conceptual projects
 Alert to the difference between opinion and research-informed solutions
 Good at receiving and giving critical feedback in a constructive, open, and active way
 Skilled in English grammar, syntax, structure, etc.
 Allergic to lazy writing and jargon

Write intelligent and thoughtful marketing copy in the service of specific campaigns, business goals, and great user experience
 Keep your eye on consistency in style, quality, and tone of voice
 Find opportunity in creative constraints (mad deadlines, incomplete briefs, odd client requests, etc.)
 Research unfamiliar topics to write as if you're an expert on the subject
 Apply the same level of care to production work as you do conceptual brand work
 Nail deadlines and maintain attention to detail in a fast-paced environment
 Collaborate with low ego
 Ask lots of question

Substantive writing portfolio demonstrating your written work for real-world clients (sport performance/sportswear brands are a bonus)
 3+ years of professional and project-based copywriting experience (or equivalent experience)
 BA in English, journalism, advertising, marketing, or related field of study (or equivalent experience)
