Job Description:

Do you tweak that sentence 5 times to get it right? Can you say more with less copy? Can you juggle multiple projects and competing priorities?

We’re looking for a Copywriter who’s the right mix of grammar geek and wordsmith to work onsite within our email creative team. You’ll need to be as comfortable playing in the copy editor space as you are in the digital writer space. You’ll edit and (sometimes) write copy in brand voice and style, and review content with the customer experience in mind.

You’ll need a positive attitude, and you must understand the benefits of process and how to use it to deliver the best results. We’ll expect you to collaborate within your core team of project manager and designer, as well as with a variety of partners.

Along with your resume, share a few paragraphs to tell us how your experience makes you a good fit for this copywriter position—this is your chance to show us your skills in practice.

- Work with brand and business teams for multi-stage internal reviews and approvals.
- Work within tight schedules and deadlines.
- Work within regulatory and accessibility compliance guidelines.

Required Qualifications
- Minimum 2–4 years of experience, preferably digital and/or some agency experience
- Insanely keen eye for detail, grammar, punctuation and errors
- Proven ability to check, re-check and check again to ensure all prior revisions are in place
- Strong organizational skills a must—an amazing ability to manage multiple projects and teams simultaneously
- Familiarity with Google Docs and Adobe Acrobat Pro
- Knowledge of AP Stylebook

Optional, but Optimal
- Knowledge of web accessibility
- Knowledge of G Suite for business
