Scott Maney, Chief Creative Officer (and good friend to MC) at Breakaway in Boston, is on the hunt for a killer copywriter. From Scott: “We’re looking for a writer who can actually write. Sounds crazy, but not everything is a visual solution or an idea for an app.
We need someone who thinks like an entrepreneur and is creative like an artist and is a craftsman (or craftswoman) about their work. There’s a shit ton of opportunity here – to build your book, to launch business ideas, to work with cool start-ups, to change big brands. We need honey badgers that don’t care what the medium is, they can crush it whether it’s film or print or digital or packaging or naming or collateral or web. Because we do all those things and so will the writer.
It’s not about how much experience you have. Would rather have the right person with a year experience than the wrong one with ten. But if you have leadership skills and can be in front of clients, we’ll give you all the responsibility you can handle and the pay that goes along with it.”

Lawrence is a copywriter at SapientNitro in Boston. Four years ago, he landed his first gig at Breakaway after seeing a post about it on MC. (Love that.) Now he’s shooting the fiddle for Ram, making rich media banners for Fiat, and posting all kinds of “chicanery” around the office. Well done, sir.

Scott Maney, Chief Creative Officer at Breakaway in Boston (and friend of MC) is looking for a writer. From Scott: “Small, very unique shop of 15 in Boston. Less than 2 years old.

An energy brand. Consumer tech. Creatively-focused consumer products. Launching a new fashion e-commerce site. The list seems to grow every week. We have a venture capital arm too so we invest in cool companies. Definitely not the old school ad agency model.” Interested? Awesome. Email Scott at the address below.
