Copywriter | Remote
Hi. Here’s the thing. Everyone can write. But not everyone’s a copywriter. There’s a difference between making yourself understood and crafting a message that gets inside people’s minds and moves their hearts. If you have this super-power—this ability to use language to persuade—then you’re a copywriter. If you want to use your skills for good, then we want to talk to you.
We’re kind of a secret in the DC metro area, an award-winning, crack team of creative gurus artfully leveraging our craft to help people quit drugs or smoking, protect the environment and save energy, or recognize and celebrate women scientists (just to name a few)—one campaign, website, and digital ad at a time. It’s exciting work and we do it as a family that knows how to have fun.
If you’re passionate about copywriting, creativity, and teamwork, you are exactly who we’re looking for. Get your work together and send it over. We’ll call right back.
In this role, you’ll:
- Write copy for a wide range of media, including social, web, print, radio, and video.
- Support public- and private-sector clients who tackle issues like COVID-19, energy efficiency, climate change, child welfare, and more.
- Think strategically while developing ideas and concepts for projects and campaigns.
- Make deadline. Seems obvious, but it’s kind of a thing here.
- Work until it’s good. We support and encourage work/life balance, but at the end of the day we have to deliver a remarkable product.
- Multitask. We’re a big studio, lots of people, lots of projects. You will have to know when to dive deep into the work and when to surface for everything else.
- At least three years of experience as a copywriter, preferably within an agency environment.
- A bachelor’s degree in marketing, advertising, communications, or equivalent experience in a related field.
- A portfolio that shows strong concepting and copywriting skills across a range of pieces, including long-form content.
- Excellent organizational skills, with solid attention to detail.
