Online Copywriter / Social Media Specialist

2 people like this description

Aquent is seeking a full-time, ongoing copywriter with social-media expertise to support our high-tech Fortune client in north Austin on their e-commerce and online content efforts. We're looking for that rare ability to turn Likes into loves through a concise, creative and captivating style that engages customers across social-media vehicles (e.g., Facebook, Twitter).

Along with posting items about new PC launches and related consumer technology, you’ll be uploading images, updating our client’s Facebook timeline, and proactively finding ways to turn passive users into excited customers. While getting the word out is key, success for this role will be measured by whether customers are sharing and interacting with the content you create. You’ll be working on a team of writers in our client’s internal creative agency, so there may be an opportunity to write longer-form content and marketing pieces about new products.

Our client is a high-tech company, but technical experience isn’t mandatory for this role. You should, however, have enough of a grasp on computers and related technology that you can communicate product benefits in an informed, engaging and unique style. (Our client’s customer base can spot “faking it” from a mile away.) Experience writing similar content for another large company like Intel, HP, Facebook, eBay or Microsoft is helpful but not mandatory.

Important note: This is not a Technical Writer position.
