compensation: DOE - please *carefully* read the ad
employment type: part-time

1) You must live in the greater NYC area. ALL of the Boroughs qualify as acceptable. Associated New Jersey locales such as Jersey City, Hoboken, and Edgewater ALSO qualify but nothing outside of 45 minute commute to Midtown is eligible. In doubt? Check Google maps and use Times Square as a destination (using MASS TRANSIT as the travel option). Please indicate the city you reside in within your cover letter or resume for us to consider you. You will be filling-out a federal W-4 form with us if we hire you as an employee. That form needs to state your full-time, permanent address and it must align with this paragraph. We check state ID's and it must match your I-9 and W-4. Please remember to send all of your contact information with your resume. PLEASE NOTE: While we all work remotely (as employees - NOT 1099's), we meet in-person weekly to discuss projects.

2) You must be available. THIS IS A PERMANENT, PART-TIME POSITION. You should be focused, passionate about marketing copy and ready for a production (non-fiction) writing career. The position DOES offer schedule flexibility!

3) You MUST have solid writing experience. We prefer marketing copywriting experience. That said, we are interested in all concrete NON-FICTION writing if it shows that you can capture the reader's attention.

4) You must know how to interview the people that you are writing for, so you comprehend their business model. Strong research and fact-checking skills are a must. Understanding the audience (the buyer) is an important part of the process.

5) Please. Pretty please... Have a sense of proper grammar. We are grammar snobs and our tests filter out folks who don't know the difference between an adjective and an adverb.

6) You must be LEGALLY authorized to work in the USA and over the age of 18.

Our starting compensation ranges from $15 - $19 per hour and is dependent on experience. If you have limited marketing copywriting (and BUSINESS blogging) experience, please don't expect $19/hour to start. We offer salary/performance reviews every 90 days with an opportunity for performance-based revenue increases every 90 days!


Getting our attention is easy:

Submit a resume with a city/state location in it. We get loads of resumes with just a phone number in them. We won't be able to figure out if you are in the NYC metro area with just a phone number.

Take the time to tell us why this is a good fit. Almost everyone romanticizes about ad copywriting but VERY few are willing to put in the hard work. In your email - tell us why you desire the slot. No introduction in your email is a sure way to get passed over by us... You're a writer - write something that shows us that you care!

Thanks for reading!
