Craft copy for a variety of brands and organizations. Working across different industries excites you. You'll refresh existing content or prepare new copy that fulfills business goals and resonates with the target audience. The copy we're producing typically explains a product or service – this position does not require significant article or editorial copywriting.
Keep SEO in mind. You have an awareness of SEO best practices and familiarity with keyword research tools, which will help inform your recommendations and the structure of your work. Many of our websites use the "pillar page" concept for driving organic traffic.
Conduct audits. You will conduct content audits to determine what exists today, what needs to be rewritten, and what will need to be created.
Develop relationships with clients. You know everything about your clients' goals, personalities and priorities. You prepare thorough questions and synthesize the insights into innovative human-centered content strategies. You can empathetically work through feedback and revisions.
Do the research. Conduct research through interviews, workshops, surveys, and any other format that gets you the insights you need.
Proofread your work. While we work professional proofreaders on many occasions, you are expected to produce polished, error-free work.
Maintain best practices. Ensure that protocols are being followed. Evolve processes, offerings, deliverable formats and when you see opportunities to make improvements.
Day-to-day. Responsibilities will include the conceptualization, creation, and upkeep of a wide array of deliverables including emails, web pages, event signage, video and print copy, informative guides, and other ad hoc creative pieces.
Qualifications and Skills
1 - 2 years of experience in a full-service digital agency is preferred. While we will consider candidates with in-house experience, an agency background is preferred.
1 - 2 years of hands-on professional B2B and Marketing writing experience.
A portfolio or some examples that clearly exhibit the ability to focus on B2B or a blend of B2B and B2C copywriting is required for this role.
Exceptional communication, presentation and organizational skills.
An understanding of how websites are built using waterfall and agile processes, and the awareness to collaborate with designers, developers and other personnel when necessary.
An understanding of integrated digital marketing and its various components. The foresight and understanding to loop in additional marketing disciplines beyond web when appropriate.
Previous SaaS-based product writing a plus.
