Our continual aim is to create an inclusive environment for everyone, at all levels, to achieve their highest potential at work.

As a Copywriter, you’ll join the Design department and be the first member of our Copywriting team to help establish, grow, and maintain the early version of our brand language guide!

  • Work to receive Legal/Compliance feedback in a timely fashion when needed

  • Maintain the copywriting roadmap and communicate with stakeholders to ensure deadlines are met for various products 

  • Create written content for a wide variety of channels including, but not limited to, web pages, paid social channels, in-app communication, error messages, social posts, email campaigns, marketing campaigns, takeover experiences, commercial scripts, and more

Who you are:

  • A curious and proactive problem solver who can articulate creative concepts to cross-functional teams

  • Ability to write clear, concise and compelling copy that supports brand and marketing goals

  • A desire to be a part of a small team and begin at the ground level 

  • A process oriented individual that can establish, document and articulate how to keep the Underdog voice consistent

Even better if you have…

  • At least 2 years of in house copywriting experience, preferably in a creative setting 

  • Experience working in Figma or Notion
