And we are looking for a writer. Notice we didn't say "copywriter." We're looking for someone who can flat-out write.
A Love for Long Form and Short Form
Whether it's ad copy, a video script, a short story, a tweet, or a song - good writing is good writing. We're looking for someone who has a passion for storytelling, and a portfolio of writing that shows it off.
This position is more than cranking out witty headlines all day, though that is a part of it. We're looking for a versatile writer who can work quickly and shift between multiple types of projects in a day. From building out digital content strategy for a website, to writing short, funny video scripts, writers here are relied on for many different things. So it's probably best if you're into that.
A portfolio of your original writing. Stories, scripts, ads, videos, funny tweets, and anything else related. A degree from somewhere in something. 18+ years experience in life, and hopefully a few good stories from that time. We like stories.
3+ years experience working in a fast-paced creative writing environment. Solid people skills. You're not a good enough writer to be a jerk. No one is.
A keen eye for detail and a mind that's perpetually critiquing your own writing. A desire to get better at something you think you're already pretty good at. Familiarity with a keyboard. "Can-do" attitude when it comes to finishing your work on time, as well as finishing burritos.
Our working environment:
We don't want to change your working style- everyone has their own way. All we care about is that your work is finished on time and up to our high standards. Every day here is different. We work with lot of great clients in all different kinds of media. One thing that is consistent- we focus on doing vs. talking about doing. We've got a stocked fridge, constantly brewing Peet's coffee and nice bathrooms. We're not owned by a giant holding company, so unless you live in San Francisco you'll have to move yourself out here for this job. You should probably move here anyway.
Candidates only! It is NOT OK for recruiters or others to solicit this company.
