What does the Marketing Copywriter do?
The Marketing Copywriter's role is to take web pages, emails, and other content and create copy that improves conversion rates and gets results.
We're looking for a Marketing Copywriter who will:
- Locate weak spots in SLH's copy and propose, create, and A/B test new copy
- Increase conversion rates with the copy s/he writes
- Help develop new email marketing funnels as well as improve our existing ones
- Find the right words to educate, inspire, and motivate users to take action
- Create clear and engaging copy that's honest and helpful (and not hype)
- Focus on results -- you're not satisfied merely creating new copy and calling it a day. Rather, you're focused on making sure what you produce gets the desired results.
The ideal candidate for this position should have an entrepreneurial mind-set and be ready to take on and initiate new projects as he or she sees the need arise.
What’s it like to work on the Student Loan Hero team?
Student Loan Hero is a fully remote team. We have team members all over the world, in cities including NYC, Austin, Portland, Santiago, and St. Petersburg.
Since we’re literally all over the map, communication using Slack, Gmail, Basecamp, Google Hangouts, and other tools is key for us. Don't worry—you won't be alone. We communicate regularly throughout the day.
In our small group, each team member uses highly specialized skills while working on a variety of projects. We enjoy giving our team members autonomy to do the work that interests them. We’re focused on the output of each team member, not putting in long hours.
We’re always open to new ways to create better content and make Student Loan Hero better for student loan borrowers, and we want to hear new ideas from you. A large part of our culture and values is transparency. We believe that team members should collaborate and communicate, not compete or engage in office politics.
At the same time, we like to make work as much fun as possible. We want everyone on our team to grow both personally and professionally, which is why we offer wellness and educational bonuses, as well as several other great perks.
Above all, we’re each proud to work on solving meaningful problems and to impact lives every day. Whether it’s authoring a blogpost read by thousands of borrowers or answering a one-on-one customer support question, we value that working for Student Loan Hero makes a positive impact.
