• Has the ability to ask questions and develop a consultative relationship with clients. 

• Quickly responds to changing requirements, markets, and insights, and can think ahead. 

• Is a strong “big picture” thinker who can look beyond a specific creative piece to the marketing ecosystem in which it lives. 

• Has flexibility to work on a wide range of projects, from conceptual work to the more day-to-day quick-turn copy deliverables. 

• Has the skill to take diverse and often complex ideas and develop straightforward, compelling copy that mirrors our brand voice. 

• Excels at writing both short and long copy for either print or digital. Drupal and Sketch a plus. 

• Has solid b2c and b2b experience, general advertising-conceptual ability a plus. 

• Is detail oriented, able to adhere to process, and roll with repeated content revisions. 

• Is self-motivated and comfortable with managing multiple projects and tight deadlines, and thrives on new challenges.
