About Hawke Media
Hawke was founded on the idea that every modern business needs a CMO-level expert to lead digital marketing efforts. We customize data-driven, performance-focused solutions to help launch, scale, and invigorate businesses of all sizes, industries, and revenue models. We're shifting the agency paradigm by putting client success ahead of our own. We've been featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur, INC, Business Insider, and CNN, and we can boast clients such as Red Bull, Verizon, Evite (and many, many more). We work hard and collaborate to create our dynamic culture.
Job Summary
The Copywriting Lead is responsible for the daily production of multiple client projects, ensuring all copy meets established quality standards. While the ideal candidate will have a solid background in copywriting and copy editing, the majority of their day-to-day focus will be on managing the copywriting process and writers. Therefore strong experience in project management and the ability to work collaboratively and efficiently with external clients and freelancers is a must. This person must be proactive, have strong attention to detail, and have a passion for copywriting in all forms.
The Copywriting Lead will also drive the development of Hawke Media's copywriting service offering, resourcing, processes, and training. As a highly conceptual problem solver, articulate presenter of ideas, and builder of strong client relationships they must be able to motivate and inspire the efforts of various team members (while still loving to get their own hands dirty!) Highly accountable and visionary in nature, it is the Copywriting Lead's responsibility to lead with innovation and inspired ideas, delivering excitement and passion to each and every client experience.

An Insider's view of Hawke Media

What are some social events your company does?

Hawke has monthly Happy Hours at our West LA HQ showcasing new initiatives each month. Quarterly, we host Brand Alchemy in NY & LA, an event series focused on the cross-section of marketing and talent that accelerate growth. Annually, Hawkefest invites eCommerce executives to a day of collaboration and programming with industry thought leaders.


Experiential and Event Marketing Manager

What does your typical day look like?

I love having complete control over how my day is scheduled. I don’t have a “typical day” because every day is so different. Some days I’m sitting (or standing!) at a desk doing phone interviews, and some days I’m working on a side project for the recruiting team while lounging on the couch- yay WFH!


Senior Talent Acquisition Partner

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Honestly, my career has grown so much since joining Hawke just five months ago! Since joining the Lifecycle team, my skills have grown in SMS marketing, loyalty & rewards programs, CODING, mastered several new CRMs and ESPs, and added new client-facing skills.



How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

When a team feels comfortable sharing their challenges, wins, and even parts of their personal lives with each other, you're able to build a team culture where accessibility is tied with honesty, transparency, and a shared sense of purpose. There's no need for “my door is always open” because that is obvious through my actions and our interactions.


EVP | Finance

What are some social events your company does?

Since the transition to WFH, Hawke Media has become very creative with hosting social events for us. On Wednesday's and Friday's we play games on Zoom like Trivia and Pictionary where we can earn Amazon gift cards! I look forward to these because it is a great chance to interact with other people in the company in a non meeting setting.
