Job Description

As a Copywriter, you will play a crucial role in crafting the words that define our brand-customer interactions. Your work will directly impact our advertising creative and digital presence across channels, so you should bring a thorough understanding of impeccable grammar and unforgettable words. You will be joining a driven, growing team of writers and designers in Marketing at one of Austin’s most exciting companies. 

Qualifications


WE’RE GOOD AT:
Bringing the fire. We are a startup, with all the fierce dedication and sparkling energy to accomplish great feats. Iron sharpens iron, and so we’ve refined our teams from only the strongest metals: open minds, bright ideas, and bold determination.

YOU’RE GOOD AT:

  • Writing truly exceptional copy—whether it’s for an Instagram ad, an email flow, or website copy. 
  • Ingraining Literati’s high brand standards and voice to the core. 
  • Gaining a distinct understanding of our products and crafting inspiring descriptions that guide customers to purchase.
  • Collaborating with other writers, designers, and marketing managers to ensure deliverables uphold the brand across the board.
  • Multitasking with extraordinary resourcefulness. You are a magician who can write in a fast-paced environment with perpetual creativity and innovation.

YOU WILL NEED:

  • 3+ years of experience in copywriting at a consumer-focused brand, startup, or agency. 
  • Authoritative expertise in marketing-forward written communication, and an excellent command of grammar.
  • Demonstrated track record of composing a variety of marketing assets across mediums. 
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills, as well as a collaborative spirit and ability to work with a team. 
  • Relevant portfolio of recent work.

YOUR DAY-TO-DAY WILL LOOK LIKE: 

You’ll work alongside a talented Marketing creative and brand team to produce a volume of high-converting ad units, email campaigns, product descriptions, and other messaging assets. As a growing startup, Literati is a choose-your-own-adventure company. Bring us great words, and it’ll be a wild ride.


Additional Information

We seek people with drive and a touch of alchemy—and if that sounds like you, you should join us. Even if your experience isn’t a precise match for the role, passion and prowess will always win the day in our book. And if your career has taken you to some spectacular (or spectacularly strange) places? We love a good story.

At Literati, we value the power of reading for all: anyone who dreams, anyone who wonders, anyone of any age, from any background.

An Insider's view of Literati

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

You do the work, so you deserve the rest. Your individual work-life balance will vary based on the team that you work with, but in Customer Support, our associates can expect to regularly have a 40-hour work week and be paid time-and-a-half for extra hours worked. We also have regularly scheduled work-from-home hours!

Ashley Horton

Sr Customer Support Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We pride ourselves on being a small team in order to stay nimble, so collaboration across teams is as easy as turning around and chatting with colleagues a few desks away. We’ll break out for working sessions as we dig into specific projects, gathering feedback from key stakeholders in order to set a roadmap in motion.

Mike Tully

Sr Software Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

One thing I love from my time at Google was "20% time" which allows people to spend up to one day a week working on a passion project that doesn't necessarily tie into the roadmap. Just eliminating all process and approval is a critical first step. Innovation looks absurd out the gate.

Jess Ewing

CEO

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office space is for makers who answered the call to adventure. We thrive at the intersection of artisan-crafted daydreams and cutting-edge tech. You’ll see people that are laser-focused on driving progress to OKRs. We think for ourselves, understand how our strategies impact others, and never settle for less than world-class brand experiences!
