Harry’s is a men’s grooming brand that was built out of respect for quality craftsmanship, simple design, modern convenience and for guys who know they shouldn’t have to overpay for a great shave. We are able to deliver exceptional value and experiences to our customers because we are vertically integrated. From grinding steel into fine razors blades at our factory in Germany to selling our products directly to customers on our website and select retailers, we own the entire process.

Since launching in early 2013, we have been blown away by the customer response to our brand. Today, we have over 3 million customers and are growing fast. We’re now looking to bring amazing people, like you, together to redefine the way people interact with brands online and in stores across the country.

What will this person do at Harry’s?

They will tell stories with words, a process most commonly known as writing.

The writer’s job is to create and edit industry-leading copy and content across the Harry’s organization, from taglines and headlines to scripts to social posts. They’ll support a Senior Copywriter and help the broader Creative Team in all day-to-day copy requests. They approach each task, small or large, with the same attention to detail.

Who is this person? What experience do they have so far?

They should have at least two years experience writing copy for media outlets and/or brands and preferably have experience working across a variety of environments, from editorial to e-commerce to digital product. Much like the ability to bake vegan cakes, agency experience is not a must, but it doesn’t hurt.

They should have experience communicating with different audiences and be fluent in social media, with specific experience writing for social.

They should be a technically skilled writer able to proof work across the organization; meaning they should know that the semicolon in this sentence is misplaced.

They should be able to communicate cross-functionally with business stakeholders in order to optimize language and copy for various channels. Furthermore, they should be constantly engaging with channel owners to learn how to maximize performance of their work and demonstrating those learnings where and when it’s applicable.

They understand the perspective of their customers, and have a knowledge of what it takes for them to engage with a brand. Their work demonstrates this knowledge and is therefore easy for them to defend to a variety of stakeholders.

They must be as excited to experiment in 10 words or less as they are to write long-form articles. Iteration is  not only encouraged, but a necessary part of the job.

Their approach to creative work is informed by both qualitative and quantitative methodologies, and they have a proven ability to work independently where necessary, and to meet aggressive deadlines

They will be expected to brainstorm concepts with the creative team around original cross-platform campaigns, social media activations, and beyond. When presenting work to the creative director or to internal and external stakeholders, they should be able to address questions, concerns, and critique in a clear, confident way and be able to pivot quickly based on feedback.

They realize that their magnetic personality and crazy-good copy skills will make them an asset across the organization, and are ready, willing, and able to collaborate with everyone from IMC to S&OP to FP&A to other departments with acronyms that may well be equally unfamiliar to them.

They understand the strategy behind where and when copy lives, and consider this whenever they are writing.

They are a true editor, meaning their work is informed by the larger cultural forces at play around them. They are expected to bring this breadth and depth of knowledge to work with them, and consider it when storytelling for the company.
