The Copywriter works with designers to own content calendars and campaign execution for a set of brands.
At VaynerMedia, we’re lucky that everyone within our walls thinks strategically, shares a passion for emerging technology, and understands the world of both big campaigns and content. Our copywriters serve a slightly different role than more traditional “digital creative types,” but thankfully we’ll never use the term “digital ninja.”

You’re an ultimate team player who will create value in any situation. You understand creative problem solving and have a passion for storytelling on every platform. You’re an adaptable idea person who understands that good ideas can come from anywhere. You’re highly observant and write because you love to. You can execute quickly and manage your time well. You’re aware of your strengths and your weaknesses. You’re cool in the face of a challenge. You'll be working primarily within the digital realm, so the portfolio you submit should reflect this, however, we love seeing your overall solutions and ideas throughout your book.
