THE JOB / Creative Director - Copywriting
CREATIVE / Responsible for generating bold, innovative ideas () and
producing design, technology and content for our clients' marketing
** Our headquarters is located in Stamford, CT but the location of
this position can be flexible with a preference for working in one
of our office locations - Stamford, CT, New York, NY, Charlotte,
NC, Atlanta, GA, or Los Angeles, CA. We will also consider a
remote-based working arrangement for qualified candidates.**
It all starts with copy.
There's nothing wrong with slick art direction or beautiful design,
but when it comes to expressing crisp, clear ideas, copy is key.
And that's what we're looking for - CD's who are all about their
craft and want to bring it to life at the intersection of sports,
entertainment, and culture.
Whether it's experiential activations, branded content, broadcast
spots, or influencer campaigns, you've got the chops, flexibility,
and most importantly conceptual skills to bring it all to life.
Oh, and you want to do that for brands like Budweiser, Delta Air
Lines, Mastercard, PlayStation, and Taco Bell.
Last but not least, this is a pretty cool place to work -- and
that's coming from the people writing this job posting, not the HR
Everyone on the team works hard, but it's not working hard just to
prove who can work longest. We work hard because the creative
opportunities are great, and we actually like working with each
other to make interesting things while keeping clients happy. We
also know that all work and no play make for terrible ideas.
The work you'll do
Specifically, you'll team up with our media and technology teams to
create exceptional content and experiences for our clients, and
more importantly, the diverse and ever-changing audiences they're
trying to reach.
You'll have to be versatile, resourceful, and confident enough to
handle the different kinds of writing required. Everything from
researching and crafting big conceptual press-worthy ideas and
headlines, to smart and sticky digital activations that not only
draw people in but keep them interested and engaged.
The bigger team you'll join
Where others see complexity, we see possibility.
