Mid Level Copywriter

0 people like this description

Our client is looking for a copywriter who chews up words and spits them out into clear, detailed, and accurate copy that is consistent, on-brand, and in our authentic voice. You skillfully craft copy to fit the experience or intended audience, and adeptly tailor your edits to meet schedule demands. With one or two carefully selected words, you can shift the copy to quirky-smart or buttoned-up professional but it is absolutely, always, authentically . This is a 2 month contract, full time, onsite at our client's (incredible!!) office in downtown Seattle. We are looking for someone ready to dive in and get started by Tuesday, July 14th at the absolute latest!

What you should bring to the table:

• Creative storyteller: your words will be the ones that drive clicks and pull clients in.
• Discerning curator: you know exactly what the occasion calls for, be it concise ad copy that grabs eyes & propels action or explanatory content that educates & informs.
• Content whisperer: jagged edges are made smooth under your influence.
• Fire-juggling, tightrope walker: content flying in every direction, roaring from the front office, and yet you pull the pieces together and balance your way to the finish.
• Truth keeper: you’d never allow untrue statements to get published just to avoid denting a word or phrase.
• Perfectionist: “who” or “whom,” “which” or “that”? You sweat the details.
• Deep Space 9: you’re plugged in to email marketing, direct marketing, and blogs; plus, you know a thing or two about word choice that draws traffic.

Here’s what you’ll do:

• Writing: your primary focus is email campaigns, ads, landing pages, pitch decks, educational material, flyers, and other printed collateral but you may be asked to assist with additional writing projects, when needed.
• Editing: what you don’t write, you’ll likely be asked to edit. Wield your red pen with care because every word that goes through you ends up in front of the five million people on our website or a more targeted audience in email, ads, or events.
• Quality assurance: you make sure our content is clear, detailed, accurate, and appropriate for the experience. Check with subject matter experts in the field, chase down people in the office. Ask questions, sort out contradictions, check facts. Columbo. Woodward. Bernstein.
• Team member: play well with others, collaborate across disciplines (design, marketing, product dev), lend a hand where you can, get your hands dirty when needed, and contribute to the collective success of the company.

Requirements:

• Technical acumen: a minimum of three years writing copy in a professional or agency environment and at least one year editing are ideal. No coding necessary but experience with CMS, HTML, publishing tools & processes, and a dabbling in SEO will serve you well.
• Survival skills: your toolbox includes dealing with ambiguity and gettin’ scrappy.
• Entrepreneurial energy, creativity: in your interview, we’ll ask you for two to three ideas on how our content could be better. Come prepared!
