We’re looking for a seasoned Senior Copywriter and content marketer with strong B2B experience who knows how to create crisp, approachable, and action-driving content. Short form, long form, and everything in between, the Senior Copywriter will own all editorial executions for host content, collaborating closely with marketing managers, designers, and leadership to create best-in-class content marketing ecosystems and collateral. 

This role represents a rich opportunity to join a small-but-mighty brand creative team and help us build and sculpt the evolving Turo brand. The mandate for this role’s output is a blend of B2B & B2C styling — the host audience can be characterized as both business-savvy entrepreneurs and everyday consumers, so a mind for business concepts, and the ability to distill complicated concepts into down-to-earth, approachable language is key. You’ll work on projects like host testimonial profiles, onboarding content, white papers, case studies, P&L worksheets, and more.

The ideal candidate is a grammatical ninja with an eye for simplicity with sparkle. They understand the nuances of content hierarchy, customer-centric messaging philosophies, branding, user experience, and content dissemination strategies. The ideal candidate thinks critically and strategically about copy and content. They have an extraordinary eye for detail, and are a champion for conventional consistency. They are not only an exceptional writer, but also an expert collaborator who can deftly navigate working with stakeholders across the organization (marketing, product, design, operations, business development, executive management) to deliver on-message, strategically sharp content deliverables. Last but not least, they are a smart, kind, creative, mindful person who can help us elevate our brand and our team to new heights.
