Copywriter

Gurugram, Haryana, India Full-time

Role Brief: The Copywriter will be expected to create compelling content for multiple platforms both online (social media, Google AdWords, website) and traditional (outdoor, print, etc.)

Purpose: To woo the audience with compelling content and ideas. And make them hit the order online tab!

Essential Functions:
A. Writing Copy 

  • This ain’t for Shashi Tharoor-ians who love Oxford commas. We’re looking for a person with a smart, quick-witted grasp of the English language, but who also knows how to write like a human. Think of a mix between The Hindu and your twitter feed. Informative, yet interesting. 
  • You’ll need to write long copy (brand guidelines, websites, etc), as well as smart, pithy copy (ad headlines, outdoor, etc).
  • You’ll need to be able to write fast and juggle multiple projects.
  • You’ll need to be able to proofread other copyriters and designers. Designers can’t spell a lick. Seriously, they’re 'HORRIBLE'.
    PS: If you didn't notice, the spelling of copywriters is incorrect in the above statement. 
  • You’ll be expected to be proactive in researching audiences, clients and products. We’ll give you all the support you need, but you’ll need to “dig” on your own. 

 

B. Working Well with Others 

  • You will work with account managers, designers, Facebook ads managers, and clients on an hourly basis. If you like people, great. If you’re a hermit who likes to hide in a cubicle, go work for an engineering firm (no offence to engineering firms). 
  • We need someone who disagrees politely and supports others. We fight with love and we’re all very nice people here. We'll even share our food with you (just kidding).
  • Be courteous, be polite, be on time and be smart.
  • Ask questions. Don’t hide
  • Be a team player, always share your food. 

 

C. Brain Power

  • Are you curious? Good. You’ll soon become an expert on tires, baseball, firearms, optics, trains and anything and everything in-between. And if you can’t become an expert, by gosh, at least sound like an expert. 
  • Do you like profreading? Good. Did you notice the misspelling in that last sentence? You just may work out. 
  • Do you like to present? Don’t worry. We’ll make you better. But you will be expected to present your ideas to the clients, account people and other team members. 
  • We brainstorm here. We try to do it every day (at times even on weekends). So you’ll be sitting with designers and thinking up ideas.
