Wayward Kind is looking for an experienced copywriter (or two) to join our team of marketing experts. Is that you? Let’s find out.
We want to meet you if:
- You love to write. Like, LOVE love it. We’re looking for a copywriter who thinks about puns in the shower and watches the Superbowl exclusively for the ads.
- You have an analysis on social justice issues. We work with companies who are making significant changes in race, class and gender equity. We want to partner with a copywriter who has a interest in these subjects and a solid understanding of them.
- You are persuasive. You know that the right words can help people make decisions, mitigate hesitation, and share ideas with others. You know how to find and test words until you get the right combination.
- You understand how humans find information. Knowing the basics of SEO ensures your writing gets read––and you want to get read.
- You are versatile. You like to write website copy, blog content, email marketing copy, video storyboards, and social media content.
- You’ve got receipts. You’ve got examples of your work and you’re proud to show off what you’ve been working on.
You’ll like working here if:
- You like to lead. We’ll be looking to you to bring your best ideas and know how to execute them.
- You thrive on variety. Our copywriter manage about 10-15 clients at a time. If you like writing about a bunch of topics and learning about several industries, you’ll like working with us.
- You’re ready to learn. If you see feedback as an opportunity to grow and improve, and not as a threat.
- You want to play a bigger role. We are small and mighty team. At a bigger agency, you’d be stuck in a cube, churning out copy all day. Here, you’ll be in a leadership role. We’ll look to you to guide best practices in content strategy and execution.
