Do you write good? Do u h8 when ppl misuse the enlgish language? Does certain punctuation make your skin crawl; causing you to shiver?!?!?!
If you’re on the verge of punching the screen, you may be just the copywriter Origo is looking for….lolz.
Origo is hiring a jack-of-all-trades copywriter that can write killer content, come up with awesome ideas, and make sure we don’t confuse “their,” “they’re,” and “there.” It’s a tall order, we know, but we believe this unicorn copywriter is out there–and we have a home you.
The ideal person will have at least 2+ years experience as a professional copywriter. That can include some freelance time, as long as you have an interesting portfolio. Speaking of portfolios, we need to see one for all candidates (preferably digital, but not required).
Origo is a fast-paced, supportive, super-duper marketing and branding agency that does just about everything–B2B, healthcare, retail, education, non-profit–you name it. Our new copywriter could be writing anything from promotional web copy to long-form brochures to tv scripts. Flexibility is critical. Are you the magical unicorn copywriter we’re looking for?
