Copywriter

 

You’re a skilled storyteller with a passion for helping organizations connect with audiences. You can write and produce great ads, sure. But you also know how to write across the full footprint of the experience: clever social posts, human-centered UX copy, brand guidelines with a compelling voice, great narratives. You appreciate the value of good strategy and excel at honing big ideas that turn into successful campaigns. You know the beauty of brevity and that grammar rules are meant to be broken (especially on billboards). And you understand that no matter the subject or technology you’re writing about, the goal is to uncover some human truth and tell a more meaningful story. 

Does this sound like you? Perfect.

For years, the advertising industry has struggled to achieve a meaningful share of audience attention. Publishers, for their part, have been decimated by their struggle to monetize digital impressions. We started Godfrey Dadich to provide brands and organizations with a better way to engage with their audiences. Godfrey Dadich Partners combines the best of advertising, journalism, strategy, and design into The New Editorial. We’re looking for a copywriter who wants to roll up their sleeves and help us bridge the gap between all four.

This role can be based in San Francisco or New York City.


Key responsibilities:

  • Write copy for a variety of clients, from B2B tech to CPG
  • Write print ads, video scripts, radio scripts, web banners, emails, brand guidelines, web copy, and more
  • Partner closely with art directors and designers to bring your ideas to life
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with a mix of teams, balancing the needs of stakeholders (internal and external) and always seeking opportunities to elevate your work
  • Effectively pitch and present ideas and concepts internally/externally
  • Balance multiple projects under tight timelines with an ability to prioritize

Qualifications include:

  • An appreciation for the relationship between textual and visual elements. Copy doesn’t exist in a vacuum, and unless your words and the designs are working together, we’re not producing work that meets (and rises above) our standards
  • Experience either in an ad agency and/or in-house studio environment as a copywriter, or in a field where you’ve developed comparable skillsets
  • A compelling portfolio that demonstrates high-quality copywriting and concepting within a variety of campaigns and projects. Broadcast a plus
  • Experience balancing multiple clients simultaneously while meeting deadlines
  • Highly collaborative and resourceful. An entrepreneurial mindset, able to turn an unusual or open-ended brief into a creative opportunity
  • A passion for explaining technical ideas in an easily digestible and human manner
  • A love for the craft of advertising and brand storytelling in all forms

Godfrey Dadich is an organization dedicated to ideas, process, and vision. But we know that true success comes from people. And we are always looking for new collaborators who believe optimism is a strategy for making a better future. We recognize that great stories come from people with all manner of backgrounds and experiences. We are committed to building a more diverse and inclusive team, we value different points of view, and we welcome unconventional paths. If your experience doesn’t entirely conform to the qualifications listed above, please apply with a cover letter to let us know how you believe you can bring your unique skills to the GDP team.
