Marketing Writer

Location: New York, NY

Position Overview

We are seeking a Marketing Writer to write, edit and proofread marketing copy for digital, print, trade show, video and advertising projects serving clients in these technically complex markets. Success on the fundamental level will be defined as taking content projects to client approval without the interjection of existing senior-level writing and strategy staff. This requires ongoing accumulated knowledge of client subject matter and content development that is high quality, appropriate to the objective, and successfully interprets the client’s needs.

The Marketing Writer will need to interpret messaging strategy that either already exists or comes from an internal process completed by our company’s strategy team. In certain instances, the Marketing Writer may be involved in the conceptual development of messaging strategy for clients.
