Edelman is looking for a Senior Copywriter to join our growing San Francisco team. This team is working on some of the world’s biggest and most exciting brands and is responsible for award winning creative, digital and social campaigns. Edelman is a great place to grow your talent and hone your craft. You will be challenged to push convention and your own creativity to find the most innovative ways to drive consumer behavior in today’s socially-charged, digital environment.
We are at a critical juncture in communications where the online market conversation has never been louder, further reaching, nor more active. Social media and digital marketing are now not “nice to haves” in the communications mix, they are essential to a brand’s overall image and success.
The Senior Copywriter’s role is to bring our clients’ brand stories to life through creativity and the written word. As part of the creative team, assignments will range from concept development (everything from taglines to campaigns) to the creation of long- and short-form content. You’ll work in a highly collaborative environment with respected colleagues in Art/Design, Account Management, Strategy, Technology and Production.
Beyond being a talented copywriter, you should have a strong working knowledge of marketing, design, and a passion for digital and social media. You can also turn on a dime and work on a wide range of projects and brands, often in the same day (which is where having a great sense of humor comes in really handy). You'll be challenged to think creatively and find groundbreaking solutions to achieve our client’s business and marketing goals. At your core, you’re a written word perfectionist and can demonstrate an ability to think conceptually and show a thorough grasp of structure. Our clients range from technology to fun teen brands, so demonstrating diversity of experience with the ability to mix up your tone is key.
In return, you’ll have an opportunity to work on global brands in a close-knit, empowering environment. Edelman encourages the entrepreneurial spirit and offers tremendous opportunities for personal and professional development.
