Corporate Marketing Copywriter

| Greater LA Area
What We Need
A seasoned copywriter to join our marketing department.
What We Want
Someone who understands that copywriting isn’t content writing—copywriting is about measurable results (i.e. dollars and cents).
Who You Are
You are a salesman in print.
You write copy because you love to win and make money.
You believe in the maxims of Kennedy, Hopkins, and Sugarman.
You have read On Advertising, The Boron Letters, Made to Stick, and Words That Work.
You understand that quality is paramount, but know there are moments where speed needs to take precedent.
You know how to digest input from multiple stakeholders who may not have a clear vision of what they want, and use that input to write something that will leave those stakeholders saying “YES! This is what we were looking for!”
Who You Are Not
An “artist.”
A wannabe-Oscar Wilde.
A philosopher looking to use copywriting to comment on the world at large.
What You’ll Be Doing
You’ll be thinking.
You’ll be brainstorming.
You’ll be writing—A LOT.
Quality and originality are important here, but so is speed. You’ll need to find and strike a balance between the three.
You should expect to write anything and everything from Ebooks to Emails, Print Ads to Press Releases.
Though you will not be asked to work in a silo, you should know that this isn’t the traditional agency environment—you will not regularly have an opportunity to sit down and collaborate with designers or project managers. You should be prepared (and able) to create quality content with little more than basic instructions provided by a key stakeholder.

The Perks You Can Expect:

  • Two weeks PTO.
  • Above-market pay.
  • On-site, valet parking.
  • Outstanding health, dental, and vision.
  • Fully catered breakfast and lunch every day.
  • Unrestricted access to an in-house gym and basketball court.
  • Beer and wine on-tap in addition to a fully-stocked cocktail bar.
  • Monthly team lunches at outstanding local restaurants and quarterly team events at places like Disneyland and Magic Castle.

The Perks You Can't Expect:

  • The ability to work from home—ain’t gonna happen.
  • Negotiable working hours—we need you here from 8:30 to 5:30.
  • A pet-friendly office—we love dogs and we love cats, but we don’t love them here.

What You'll Need to Get This Job:

  • A dynamic portfolio that demonstrates exceptional work.
  • Strong professional references.
  • A cover letter and resume.

What You’ll Need to Get Ahead of the Pack:

  • One cover letter that reflects quality, caliber, and effectiveness of your writing.
  • One unconventional resume that tells your professional story in a compelling way.
  • The ability to speak to the teachings of advertising’s Hall of Famers (we mentioned a few of them earlier).
  • An intimate understanding of Donald Miller’s Building a Storybrand, and his seven Storybrand Principles.
  • A clear understanding that editing isn’t personal—it’s business. Your work is going to be edited with a heavy hand (especially at the start). A lot of copywriters get bent out of shape by that—if you can take feedback with a smile, you’re going to go to the head of the line.
  • The discipline and attitude to handle changing priorities with a “can do” attitude—we won’t B.S. you, priorities shift here all the time. One moment we’re going right, the next minute we’re going left. If you’re the type of person that can handle a mercurial work environment with poise and grace, you’re going to be a preferred candidate.

What are Scorpion Perks + Benefits

Scorpion Benefits Overview

Work should feel like a home away from home, so, we treat our employees like family.

This means enough free breakfast and lunch to kiss meal-prepping goodbye forever. It also means a dedicated cafe available throughout the day, beer on tap, and as much filtered water you can drink. If you want to get active, meet us on our on-site court for a game of pick-up ball or come in for a few pumps at our gym. After your workout, feel free to unwind over a few arcade or billiards games at our game station.

Outside the office, Scorpion offers a free phone plan after 90 days, full medical, dental, vision, and life insurance premiums for full-time employees.

At Scorpion, we believe happy employees create a happy work environment, and happy work means good work. If you want to work for a company that puts your needs first, apply today.
