What part will you play?

You're a wordsmith. You love writing, you practically have a relationship with your keyboard, your trackpad will never understand the two of you, and you can't wait to solve the next writing challenge together. You look for the best approach for each project. You're a jack of all voices, a chameleon of copy. Formal now. Funny later. It's all good, though, you're just happy to be doing what you love. You welcome creative direction and editing because your picture is in the dictionary next to "collaborator." You never met an HR announcement that was too serious or boring to write, an executive note too much in someone else's voice for you to feel it. And good scripts for social videos, executive announcements or talent? You eat them for breakfast. Pass that maple syrup over here, this posting's left you hungry.

  • You will write about employees, brands, benefits, diversity, health and wellness, events, training, etc. - You will write for internal and external platforms.

What do we require from you?

  • Experience writing for different mediums (web content, blogs, social media, white papers, video, etc.) with different styles. (Formal, comedy, friendly, etc.)
  • Expertise writing for different targeted audiences. (Employee, external, creative, technologist, executives, etc.) Exceptional attention to detail.
  • Forward thinking team player who likes to work collaboratively on a team and is willing to roll up sleeves and jump into anything, from handing out flyers to setting up chairs, when the call comes.
  • Samples of previous experience showing your published content.
  • Bachelor's degree preferred (English, Communications, Journalism, or related field).
  • Video production experience helpful but not essential.
