Overview

We’re Wunderman. We’re in the inspiration business. We (literally) invented direct marketing 50 years ago and today we’re still in the business of inspiring people to take action. We do that through any and every channel – both digital and offline – delivering content, experiences and information at the right time to the right people. Our Seattle office is a flagship within Wunderman, delivering award-winning work for two of our largest accounts globally – Microsoft and T-Mobile.

 

 

Responsibilities

Our Seattle office is looking for a proven, experienced Sr. Copywriter to make an immediate impact on a large national brand. We want someone who’s highly engaged, strategic-minded, overflowing with great ideas, and a master of the written word.

Qualifications

  • Possesses super-strong conceptual and creative chops (that means a book chock-full of ideas, not just a bunch of executions for various things)
  • Leads the charge for developing messaging and thought-provoking ideas across a wide range of mediums (think mobile, digital, email, IoT + other developing technologies) 
  • Has serious Brand alignment expertise: you can own a client’s brand tone and voice, have the ability to nuance messaging across audiences, and can also navigate the tricky world of a client’s legal requirements
  • Is a true team player—possessing a strong worth ethic, a can-do attitude, and an honest awareness and concern for the hardworking people on this team
  • Constantly pushes themselves and others to concept, develop and execute better creative work, because the passion is there to do so, every day
  • Understands the power of consumer insights, and can turn them into smart, relevant ideas and messaging
  • Starts with great ideas—then writes headlines and copy that brings those concepts to life in memorable, effective ways for consumers
  • Has advanced communications skills, and is capable of working well with a wide range of people across multiple agency disciplines
  • Can clearly articulate and present ideas—based on solid insights and strategy— convincingly selling in those ideas to both internal and external stakeholders
  • Works closely with Creative Directors to make sure the work is strategically aligned and always on-point
  • Is able to leave their ego at the door, collaborate and focus on producing great work
  • Bonus creds if Sr. CW has had past experience either in managing—or mentoring— younger writers, and enjoys sharing their knowledge and experience, to make others better at what they do

Specific Requirements for consideration:

  • Digital portfolio demonstrating conceptual and copywriting abilities
  • BA/BS degree in English, Journalism, Communications or related field
  • 5-8 years advertising agency experience preferred
  • Exceptional writing and editing skills, with strong attention to detail
  • Ability to easily collaborate with other creative team members, and work one-on-one with an Art Director partner.
