Job, the Internet\u2019s original Deal-a-Day website, is seeking a copywriter and social media enthusiast to join our creative team. Here at Woot! we aim to deliver an engagingly off-beat e-commerce experience. We\u2019re looking for a creative writer with experience in being funny for money. Maybe your copy writing for clients has been humorous, or maybe you've balanced regular corporate work with comedic blogging, comedy screenwriting, or some other form of chuckle-oriented writing. If you have at least 3 years of paid writing experience, at least some experience with managing social media accounts, and a love of cheesy puns, we\u2019d like to hear from you. Responsibilities for this position will include:

Writing long-form copy pieces (200-800 words) and short copy snippets (tweet length) with a high degree of conceptual creativity and verbal polish
Contributing regularly to the Woot! blog and social media channels, including initiating and executing your own story ideas
Communicating professionally and effectively with staff from other departments to get projects done
Contributing regularly to Woot!'s video projects (willingness to make a fool of yourself on camera is a plus)
Providing collateral copywriting as needed, while maintaining the company's voice and creative standards
Using various analytics systems to track and report on social post performance and conversions
Brainstorming ideas for other creative projects, and our overall creative direction

Basic Qualifications

Bachelor's Degree
3-5 years of marketing/advertising copy writing experience, plus a record of published and/or performed pieces written for audiences (journalism, fiction, screenplays, blogging, etc.)
A diverse portfolio of writing samples that demonstrate your experience, verbal facility, and, above all, sense of humor
Ability to produce ridiculous amounts of copy on ludicrously tight deadlines
Experience managing and scheduling content for social media accounts (other than your own)
A detail-oriented attitude that sweats the small stuff and keeps a close eye on deadlines
Familiarity with Web usage and culture

Preferred Qualifications

An aptitude for finding something interesting about even the most boring products
A demonstrated competency with basic social media strategies and best practices
Lack of ego when it comes to outside stakeholders commenting on your masterpieces
A history of using data to inform content strategies
Bonus Points for:

Video production experience (shooting, editing etc.)
Experience with Sprinklr or Facebook Power Editor
Mad Photoshop skillz
