Working closely with clients who share collaborative values and a big-picture vision, Domain7 delivers digital overhauls, originals, and optimizations to digital presences, products, and systems.
As Domain7's Junior Writer, your job is to turn engagement strategy and pitch angles into compelling copy that drives the acquisition of new business. You're a strong writer, an independent thinker, and even a little bit of a shark. Deadlines drive you, precision guides you, and a desire to learn, interpret, and shape your voice through textual practice keeps you engaged and excited.
In developing writing materials to support sales, pitches, and advocacy, you will be deploying a range of voices and writing styles to represent technical operations, design philosophies, and interpersonal rhetoric. Your writing will be supported by your in-depth research skills and tactical evaluations.
As part of the growing Growth & Engagement team, you'll report to the Director of Growth and participate in business development activities across the agency. We are hiring two Junior Writers, with the expectation that you onboard and work closely together within the Growth team.
As a Junior role, this position is ideal for an individual looking to grow into agency culture and practice, enhance their abilities to produce targeted writing and research, and engage in the sales cycle of digital services, design, and product development.
