MACLYN IS NOW HIRING a (All Kinds of Awesome) Copywriter

Cheap puns make you angry, even downright nauseous. Your hobbies include rewriting others’ lame marketing copy in your head. You obsessively bookmark, tear out or jot down inspired pieces of writing while that little voice whispers, “Damn, wish I wrote that.” You get geeked learning about new industries markets, culture and worlds, and only fear working with those who don’t.

If this sounds like you, we should talk.

Ideally, you’re exceptional at or can demonstrate that you’re well on your way to nailing:

• Concepting big and small (i.e. big ideas, brand platforms, campaigns, headlines, taglines, social media posts, etc.)

• Long copy (i.e. concept decks, brochures, collateral,

emails, blogs, etc.)

• Building, maintaining and owning a brand voice

• Social media and its ever-changing landscape

• Small parts: details like spelling, grammar and proofing

Things you need to start the conversation:

• Experience creating outstanding work in both the print and digital space

• 1-3 years experience, preferably agency experience (but don’t be shy if you have mad skills from elsewhere)

• Bachelors degree or enough experience to justify not having one

Things that’ll help you get in the door:

• A history with hospitality, beer and restaurant brands. B2B experience is a plus, but not a deal breaker

• A collaborative “I can champion an idea even if it’s not mine” attitude and a passion for creating the smart and the stellar

• A “let’s make this great” attitude vs. a “get ‘er done” one
