Writing is the ultimate exercise for the creative mind. Take what you're reading right now, for example. It's entertaining (so far), right? Have you ever seen a job description written like this? We're guessing you haven't and here you are, still reading it. That's the power of good copy, if we do say so ourselves.
At Cox Enterprises, we're looking for a Senior Copywriter to join the Ideabar team (our in-house creative agency) and produce words that intrigue and inspire. Whether you're crafting concepts for an advertising campaign or guiding content strategy for a website build, you'll take your creativity and imagination for a spin every day.
What's In It For You?
We're glad you asked, because we love our answer and think you will too. Here's a little taste of our best-in-class benefits package and award-winning employee culture:
- We all have lives and responsibilities outside of work, and we respect that. We have an exceptional work/life balance at Cox, with accommodating work schedules and flexible time-off policies.
