Creative Writer

Company: Strategic America
Location: West Des Moines
Posted on: March 25, 2020

Job Description:

At SA, we need a writer. Actually, we need a thinker. A problem-before-it-even-occurs solver. Someone with a curious mind and a strong work ethic who not only enjoys juggling lots of different projects but says, "Bring it on." Someone who wants to start their career - or revitalize it - in a place where opportunity and responsibility are abundant, with no shortage of ways to make an impact. A writer who wants to learn from people who've been there before, including the guy who created the GEICO GECKO. We're looking for a creative who wants to do it all: TV, radio, digital, video content, social, direct mail. 'Cause we do it all here. In short, we're looking for a confident person who; believes they have the answers. Believes everyone has something to contribute. Enjoys the thrill of solving a puzzle. Is willing to soak up knowledge. Can teach us a few new tricks. Bonus points if you're passionate about Oxford commas. More Detail ... Since we do it all, here is what a typical "day in the life" could look like as the copywriter and editor at SA: In the morning, you could be writing banner ads to sell windows. In the afternoon, concepting a video about combating hunger in Iowa. In between, an impromptu brainstorming session on the latest lottery promotion. And throughout the week, you could be helping any number of our entrepreneurial clients solve the opioid crisis. Revitalize small town America. Or market a new product that people will consider essential five years from now. On certain days, puppies come by to visit. On Thursdays in the summer our volleyball team kicks butt (although we could always use a good server). And yeah, we close every Friday at 3 p.m. Psychologically, it's like having a half-day off every week. We get it. You may see yourself in Chicago, the West Coast. Heck, even Kansas City. But Des Moines is a hidden gem. The Midwest's mini-Austin. There's plenty to do here, eat here, drink here. And unlike those other cities, you can actually afford a downtown loft here. Des Moines is great place to start your career and grow your imagination. And we're the top dogs in Iowa. Do you have the ability to kick out wicked headlines and copy under pressure? Do you also have a proven track record of delivering compelling concepts within fast-paced team environment? Can you demonstrate your ability to create effective campaigns through multiple channels: print, digital, video and social media for both brand awareness and direct marketing? Can you also support and contribute to creative thinking throughout the agency with a collaborative team approach? Let's chat. Education Bachelor's degree in marketing, communications, creative writing, or English. Experience 0-5 plus years of ad agency copy writing experience. Willing to consider higher level position based on experience. Position Requirements Quality writing samples or portfolio Knowledge of tactical and creative writing basics Strong attention to detail and keen organizational skills Excellent communication, grammar, and editing skills Ability to think creatively and innovatively Experience and comfort working in an art director/copywriter team construct Proven ability to hit aggressive deadlines and adapt to quick direction change Ability to be a strong supporter of SA's desired culture
