Job Description:

Be a part of Aquent Studios’ new design studio that is redefining design in the government. We’re adding ten copywriters/copy editors to our team within the intelligence community, and want to find creative and meticulous team members to join us! These copywriters/copy editors will work in a creative design studio within a government security agency. Your job will be to create engaging content and copy that will be leveraged and incorporated into a variety of print and digital products.

 

Our copywriters/copy editors will be responsible for:

 Researching, reviewing, and analyzing customer communication needs and strategies.

 Tailoring content type, amount, and voice to suit the media type.

 Creating focused and relevant content by collaborating with subject matter experts or product owners.
