Job Description

Description

Have you ever thought about sending a thank you note to that English teacher who told your parents you were gifted? Somewhere along the way you courageously chose to make your living by making words matter. Maybe your friends have more impressive resumes, but you have a twinkle in your eye that belongs only to people who love what they do. Whether sparking emotions, inspiring action, or simply making people smile, you make a measurable impact every day. We’d like to know you better.

At Life is Good, you’ll be cherished for the curious, happy, and smart human you’ve become. You will work with a fun creative team and two hilarious and passionate founders as you elevate our brand with your carefully chosen words. You’ll make a difference every day because the way we spread the POWER of optimism is through our art and message, the ultimate form of self-expression for our customers. Simply put, you’ll be part of the soul of Life is Good.

You may wonder why this dream job is available. Our beloved Senior Copywriter is moving on to lead a large team. He will be missed and leaves some teary-eyed coworkers behind.

This gives you the chance to share what you want us to know beyond the limitations of a resume and portfolio. You may want to compose your answers in another format and paste them into the application. Spelling and grammar matter. Take your time. If you don’t answer them, we’ll assume you’re not serious about joining the team.
