Our Ideal Jr. Copywriter Candidate:
You might only have one or two years of professional writing experience, but you know darn well you’ve got what it takes to become a next-level senior copywriter someday. While you hate to brag, you know you’re a talented writer because, well, everybody’s always told you that. You were the kid whose paper the teacher read aloud to the class because it was just that awesome. You were the kid who got in trouble for staying up too late because you had to finish just one more chapter in the book. You might not be able to name the names of all the grammar rules, but you’ve somehow always known how to follow them. You’re a natural.

As a Jr. Copywriter at MemberPress, you’ll be responsible for writing copy for product and promotional campaigns, evergreen content, and ad hoc projects as needed with a focus on social, digital, and email copy. You’ll have to be strategic, creative, communicative, detail-oriented, and flexible with a desire to develop 360 campaign skills and learn how to message strategically while maintaining our brand voice and style. You’ll need the ability to navigate with professionalism under tight deadlines and evolving project directions. You’ll need to welcome constructive criticism and be unflinching in the face of a complete directional change. You might not know all the tools, but you’ll have to be willing to jump right in and learn to use them. You’ll be a proactive and adaptable self-starter reporting to the Growth Manager.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to have you join our remote team today!
