Zero Overview

Zero is a creative studio founded in NYC. We have offices in New York, Milwaukee, Los Angeles as well as working virtually across the world. Our intention is to create an environment where multidisciplinary teams can solve problems for progressive and contemporary brands. We aim to constantly re-evaluate what it’s like to work with a studio and provide a high degree of value and service to our clients and our team.

Our studio seeks an individual with a diverse creative background and the ability to operate with a wide array of personalities (both internally and client-side). We believe that process is at the core of our success - and are continually seeking to evolve ours to get the most out of each engagement. The unique and complex problems that face our clients call for fresh and strategic thinkers. 

Position Overview

As a Senior Strategist & Copywriter at Zero, your primary focus is to independently manage your work as well as occasionally mentor team members on a project basis. 

You are able to work independently to conceptualize the emotional “why” behind brands and how to express it across all creative mediums. Your specialty is written and verbal communication, but as a Senior Strategist and Copywriter it’s imperative to think beyond your medium, developing a platform and brand world that is extendable across disciplines. Develop the persona, set the voice & tone, and provide thoughtful copy explorations that are actionable against brand goals, reflective of the target audience, and culturally aware. 

From naming to marketing email subject lines and global ad campaigns, you’re responsible for developing copy that speaks the brand’s language and offers a fresh new perspective within the brand’s industry. Whether developing the brand tone or working within a set of established guidelines, you are able to plug into the brand mindset and articulate it. Impeccable attention to detail, understanding and skill as it relates to grammar and spelling are required. Ability to modulate your voice to fit a variety of personas/brands is a must.

Responsibilities

  • Contribute to the research and discovery phase through market research, audience interviews, and any additional tactics that add value
  • Independently develop holistic brand strategies that are unique to the market, true to the audience and genuine to the beliefs and vision of the brand
  • Collaborate with the team to develop presentations that clearly and effectively tell the story of our work, collaborate with the team on creating those presentations and present the work to our clients 
  • Collaborate closely with UX and Visual Designers on brand applications such as packaging, website, emails, and other mediums to support the brand world
  • Work closely with PMs to define website language and a systematic approach to writing copy across medium to highly in-depth sites
  • Effectively manage your time to meet internal deadlines and goals
  • Approach every project with a solutions oriented mindset, clear purpose and ensure all executions meet business and user goals

Voluntary Self-Identification

For government reporting purposes, we ask candidates to respond to the below self-identification survey. Completion of the form is entirely voluntary. Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

As set forth in Zero Studios’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.


Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
