About the role

Seeking an energetic wordsmith with defined storytelling muscles, a limber vocabulary, and a heart for working at a mission-driven company. We work (and play) in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment and we're looking for a talented and passionate writer to join our team. Yes, it would be great if you have experience writing product copy for appareletail, but it's not a deal-breaker because good writers can write about anything. And sometimes a totally different perspective is just what we need.

  • Paid media, social and promotional copy
  • Contributing to regular brainstorms on seasonal concepts

  • Liaising with product merchants and brand marketing to ensure all copy is efficient and accurate.
  • Proofreading

  • Ability to prioritize tasks and meet deadlines (accomplished plate spinners, please apply)
