Your Impact:

As a Copywriter at Ready Set Rocket, you will be responsible for helping scale ideas, and strategically connecting a brand to their mission via creative storytelling and compelling messaging. You are someone who enjoys hopping between both narrative-driven projects as well as more tactical writing — always with a brand’s goals and audience needs top of mind, and an innate ability to craft copy for different voices. You’re also someone who can elevate the creative, shows passion for making award-winning work, and is totally obsessed with words.

What Success Looks Like:

  • Collaborating with the team to position brands with original and insightful ideas
  • Developing the voice, story and experience across a variety of B2B and B2C brands, including financial services, B2B, food and beverage, beauty, and media
  • Writing copy for a variety of creative deliverables, including social, video scripts, integrated campaigns, websites, etc.
  • Helping to ideate on and create content strategies and messaging frameworks for brands
  • Helping translate copy/ideas into visual experiences
  • Pitching creative work and contributing ideas to the agency and client partners
  • Assisting with new business pitches
  • Support RSR brand development and agency marketing, including our social and case studies

What You Bring to the Table:

Qualified candidates must show proven experience writing copy and developing narratives across a variety of mediums and platforms. They should be as comfortable writing short, punchy copy as they are supporting content strategies, integrated campaigns, and brand experiences from concept through execution. 

  • 4-6 years of agency experience, preferably at a digital or advertising agency  
  • Bachelor’s degree in communications, journalism, English, creative writing or similar
  • Impeccable written and verbal communication skills
  • Working knowledge of content strategy – how it is shaped and how it supports the ongoing engagement
  • Working understanding of the customer journey and ways to communicate key messaging at various touchpoints
  • Ability to multitask in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment, while maintaining a strong attention to detail
  • A portfolio of your best work that shows a variety of short and long-form samples, with an emphasis on digital, campaign, brand and video work
