We are looking for a Senior Copywriter to join our creative team.

What’s a Copywriter at ezCater?
A writer. A thinker. An idea person. A communicator. Someone who can write with directness and craft. (And maybe even a bit of humor here and there). We’re looking for someone who knows when to use a complete sentence. And when to use a fragment. Most of all, we’re looking for someone who will learn what makes our customers tick, and work to speak clearly and helpfully with them through every channel.
What You’ll Do
- Know our personas on both sides of our marketplace. Know their wants and needs, their fears and frustrations, how to reach them, and what they need to hear.
- Be best friends with our brand, our products, and our messaging. Figure out what we want and need to say, when to say it, and how to say it.
- Write short- and long-form copy that is on-brand, concise, persuasive, and action-inspiring — ads that grab attention, landing pages that convert, and emails that people open and read.
- Experiment with messaging and prove which words work. Be fearless of failure. Celebrate the wins, learn from the flops, and never stop improving.
- Help clarify and evolve our brand voice.
- Elevate the quality of writing throughout ezCater.
- Learn from and teach a first-rate team of creative professionals.
What You’ll Have
- 5-7 years of experience writing copy and conceptual work for B2C and B2B companies.
- Inventiveness, so what you write is engaging even while it’s plainspoken.
- Strong conceptual and critical thinking skills
- Deep knowledge of and appreciation for language and the power of words to communicate the essence of a brand and build relationships with customers
- The ability to think multiple steps ahead, so what you write is compelling in the moment but also furthers the lifelong conversation we’re in with our audience.
- A “get it done — right” mentality, where your maniacal attention to detail is balanced with a history of delivering high-quality work on deadline
- An eagerness and willingness to accept and apply constructive feedback. We all love learning from each other here
- Ability to communicate clearly, thoroughly, and succinctly orally and in writing – you can describe and defend a concept
- Ability to actively contribute to strategic brainstorming and campaign development
- More than anything, a portfolio that shows your writing chops.
