The Job
We’re looking for a writer’s writer. A curious storyteller. Both conceptual and tactical. A thinker who sweats the small stuff. A person who finds themselves shouting at the TV news or a bus bench ad, “C’mon, words actually mean things.”
Someone who knows the big idea is the Whole. Darn. Thing. And the medium is just a set of specs. We’re building a brand from the ground up, after all. 
A creative who could labor over a video script for weeks, but can whip one into presentation shape in a day. Same for a tweet. Or an email. Or a.... you get the idea.
Someone willing to roll up their sleeves, no matter the task - and in a start-up, there are plenty of tasks.
This person must exhibit confidence presenting work to senior stakeholders and defending it. Have both humor and humility.
If you’re looking to bring your voice and talent to a mission-driven company in ways that help it to grow and expand its reach, you’re the candidate we’re looking for.
