ezCater is the world’s largest online marketplace for catering – a $60+ billion market just in the U.S. Businesspeople use us to find and order great food for meetings and events; restaurants and caterers use us to grow their catering business. We’re backed by Insight Partners, Iconiq Capital, Wellington, Lightspeed, and GIC, and in early 2019 were valued at $1.25 billion. COVID slammed us, but we responded by finding new customer segments and seizing the rare opportunity COVID offered: when in life does a very successful operation get a do-over? Come help us power Food For Work even better than we did it the first time.
What’s a Senior Copywriter, at ezCater?
A writer. A thinker. An idea person. A communicator. Someone who can write with wit, directness, and craft. It’s someone who knows when to use a complete sentence. And when to use a fragment. Most of all, someone who knows and respects our users, and speaks clearly and helpfully with them.
You will report to our Executive Creative Director and work alongside Design and Video, within the Brand team.
What you'll do:
- Know our personas on both sides of our marketplace. Know their wants and needs, their fears and frustrations, how to reach them, and what they need to hear.
- Be best friends with our brand, our products, and our messaging. Figure out what we want and need to say, when to say it, and how to say it.
- Write short- and long-form copy that is on-brand, concise, persuasive, and action-inspiring — ads that grab attention, landing pages that convert, social posts that get likes and shares, and emails that people open and read.
- Experiment with messaging and prove which words work. Be fearless of failure. Celebrate the wins, learn from the flops, and never stop improving.
- Help clarify and evolve our brand voice. Elevate the quality of writing throughout ezCater.
- Learn from -- and teach -- a first-rate team of creative professionals.
What we hope you have:
- 5-7 years of experience writing copy and conceptual work for B2C and B2B companies.
- Inventiveness, so what you write is engaging even while it’s plainspoken.
- The ability to think multiple steps ahead, so what you write is compelling in the moment and furthers the lifelong conversation we’re in with our audience.
- A “get it done -- right” mentality, where your maniacal attention to detail is balanced with a history of delivering high-quality work on deadline.
- A portfolio that shows your writing chops.
Starting Salary Range: $83,000 - $109,000
