eROI works to bring humanity back to the relationships between people and companies.
We need a stellar copywriter to breathe narrative life into experiences, services, products, and branding—in this case, a major supplier of creative, multimedia software.
As a copywriter, you’ll communicate directly with the client to ensure that messaging is precise and their voice is clear. You will craft compelling digital messaging that helps readers connect with our client and their products. And you will support fellow writers in doing the same, while collaborating with designers, developers, and account managers to create strong and effective projects.
You should care deeply about your work without conflating work ego with personal ego. You’ll work mostly on our California-based client’s account, but our agency’s integrated teams collaborate equally and share accountability, in failure and success alike. You can look forward to shared effort and positive team dynamics.
You are
Driven by creativity, curiosity, and problem-solving
A strong and approachable communicator
A wiz at tailoring communications to specific audiences
Well versed in writing short-form copy with clarity, nuance, and substance
Able to find inspiration in—and bring enthusiasm to—both production work and conceptual projects
Alert to the difference between opinion and research-informed solutions
Passionate about technology, and capable of writing about it in simple and clear terms
Good at receiving and giving critical feedback in a constructive, open, and active way
A self-starting worker who can lead projects, mentor others, and edit work as needed
Skilled in English grammar, syntax, structure, etc.
Allergic to lazy writing and jargon
No bullshit; a lot of heart
We’ll expect you to
Write dynamic and intelligent marketing copy in the service of specific campaigns, business goals, and great user experience
Support a message-first approach to design
Represent our department in briefings and client meetings to ensure our work meets client needs while exceeding their expectations
Keep your eye on consistency in style, quality, and tone of voice
Find opportunity in creative constraints (sometimes-mad deadlines, incomplete briefs, odd client requests, etc.)
Nail deadlines and maintain attention to detail in a fast-paced environment
Collaborate with low personal ego
Ask lots of questions
You need
Substantive writing portfolio demonstrating both your creative process and your written work for real-world clients (multimedia, technology, and/or software brands are a bonus)
3+ years of professional and project-based copywriting experience (or equivalent experience)
BA in English, journalism, advertising, marketing, or related field of study (or equivalent experience)
Knowledge of Chicago Style
Familiarity with the design process, critiques, and design thinking

Be an exceptional writer, communicator, person, and strategic thinker who can dazzle the socks off your dedicated client, time and time again. Still with us? Cool! Let’s talk.
