SquareTrade in San Francisco is on the hunt for a mid-level or senior writer to join our awesome internal creative team.

For example, in the photo above, Luke Rockhold (champion UFC fighter) is kicking the you-know-what out of an iPhone in a SquareTrade Labs Breakability video. You’ll be thinking up stuff like that—in addition to writing projects for almost every major retailer in the US, mobile carriers across the EU, social, radio, environmental, you-name-it. It’s a little bit agency. It’s a little bit in-house. It’s a whole lot of fun.

Senior Copywriter Wanted: Eleven Inc., San Francisco

11

Lindsay Vriavas, Director of Recruiting at Eleven Inc. in San Francisco, is on the hunt for a senior writer—and she’s written the post herself. (Love it.) From Lindsay: “Hi. I’m Lindsay. I’m an agency recruiter, not a copywriter. You’re going to have to forgive my lack of eloquence and poor attempts at snarky copywriting antics in this post. I don’t get paid to write. I get paid to find the people that can write. That can write waaaaay better than that other writer at that other agency. So we here at Eleven Inc can be the best at writing ads and creating awesome work.

Enough about me, lets talk about you.

You are a Senior Writer with, like, 6-7ish years of experience. You are someone who can think up ideas that transform brands. Someone who likes crafting and playing with words. You are able to own a room and present to clients, and dangit, you really like what you do! You play well with others; you can work in a dog friendly environment; you can see yourself (or already are) living in San Francisco; you want to work in an agency where you have a voice and a visible platform; you thrive off working across media agnostic campaigns; and ultimately are most interested in telling stories and making prodigious branding and campaign messages.

Eleven is a good agency with good people. We have design in our roots, tremendous strategy chops, media in our toolkit, and genuinely like our people to have a life outside of the office.

Ask around, you’ll hear good things. … and PS, we work on some great clients too. i.e. Apple, Citrix, Dignity Health, Oakley, Virgin America and more …

Please send books and interest (and lasagna recipes) directly to me: lindsayvriavas@eleveninc.com
