Job Description

Are you the last man standing on Words with Friends? Have you been described as a lyrical wordsmith? Do you spend most of your time with two fingers on the pulse of pop culture and five holding tomes of non-teenage, 100% vampire-free fiction? Do you know what “ennui” means? Then you could be the person The Marketing Arm is looking for.

You’re a thinker and a doer. Every word you put to paper is strategically sound, and grammatically impeccable. You don’t write ads. You write conversations your audience will welcome. You self-edit, and you know when not to. You’re a team player for whom no job is too small and no deadline too tight. You wear many hats, you wear many shoes, and you speak in many voices. You’re a juggler. A go-getter. A built-in proofreader. And you can take a punch, but you won’t be knocked out.

Job Responsibilities

  • Handling copywriting duties within a group, from ads to POS to packaging to presentation visuals.
  • Assisting with creative direction and co-managing art directors and copywriters within the group, from their time to their workload to their interpersonal relationships.
  • Understanding input from creative directors and clients, and effectively directing the team toward better creative executions.
  • Maintaining up-to-date knowledge of cultural, design, and business trends.
  • Building effective relationships with teammates and clients.
  • Maintaining a flexible work schedule, as weekend and extended workdays are sometimes necessary.
  • Demonstrating knowledge of the marketplace our clients operate in, strategy, and the competitive landscape.

Job Qualifications

  • 3+ years of agency experience as a copywriter.
  • Experience in shopper marketing promotions.
  • Bachelor’s degree in a directly related field (advertising, marketing, etc.).
  • Management experience preferred.
  • Strong problem-solving, communications, and relationship-building skills.
  • Presentation skills and salesmanship are a must.
  • Self-motivation and ability to motivate others to creatively and strategically solve multiple problems at once, under quick deadlines.
  • Ability to brainstorm in large groups and develop big promotional ideas from beginning to end/concept and write up ideas
  • Knowledge of PowerPoint and Keynote a plus.
  • Solid portfolio, available online.
  • Proficiency in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign CS5 or above nice to have.
