Copywriter

  • Content & Copywriting
  • Full-time
  • Washington, DC

2022-01-07 04:18:26 UTC

Copywriters live and die by the words they craft. But as any seasoned copywriter knows, there’s more to it than that. Copywriting is equal parts strategy and storytelling, ideating and translating, researching and (yes) writing. With this in mind, Artemis Ward copywriters play an integral role in our creative process, contributing from initial briefs to final deliverables, always eager to roll up their sleeves to craft the concepts, campaigns, messaging, and interactive experiences that keep our clients — and their audiences — coming back for more.

As a copywriter, you’ll bring a trained eye — and pen — as you work across an array of media and channels, including client presentations, social and digital properties, cross-platform campaigns, video, and more. While you’ll approach every sentence with attention to brand voice, lyrical cadence, and grammatical perfection, you’ll measure the success of your work against the strategy it supports and the impact it makes. You’ll rely on discipline, rigor, and curiosity to not only push your ideas forward, but to inspire your colleagues to stretch, too. And you’ll be eager to receive feedback as well as deliver it, so that the content we create matches the ambitions we chase. In this role, you’ll report to the creative director/writing.

This is an in-person role in either Washington, D.C. or Denver, Colorado.
