Redfin is looking for a copywriter who chews up words and spits them out into clear, detailed, and accurate copy that is consistent, on-brand, and in our authentic voice. You skillfully craft copy to fit the experience or intended audience, and adeptly tailor your edits to meet schedule demands. With one or two carefully selected words, you can shift the copy to quirky-smart or buttoned-up professional but it is absolutely, always, authentically Redfin.
When you write copy, you’ll be the power forward who can balance creativity & humor with brand & established messaging. And when you edit, you’ll be the goalkeeper of the Redfin voice, the last line of defense. Your contribution will be key in shaping our cacophony of voices into the one, choral voice that belts out chart toppers and occasionally goes for the showcasing solo. Most of all, your efforts make sure the core elements of Who We Are reverberate through every written piece, both online & offline.
Here’s what you’ll do:
Writing: your primary focus is email campaigns, ads, landing pages, pitch decks, educational material, flyers, and other printed collateral but you may be asked to assist with additional writing projects, when needed.
Editing: what you don’t write, you’ll likely be asked to edit. Wield your red pen with care because every word that goes through you ends up in front of the five million people on our website or a more targeted audience in email, ads, or events.
Quality assurance: you make sure our content is clear, detailed, accurate, and appropriate for the experience. Check with subject matter experts in the field, chase down people in the office. Ask questions, sort out contradictions, check facts. Columbo. Woodward. Bernstein.
Teacher: assemble writing resources to make everyone’s job easier. Communicate broadly about common problems to help make every piece of content better even before it reaches you. Encourage an atmosphere where co-workers can ask questions, weigh options, and collaboratively solve copy issues.
Team member: play well with others, collaborate across disciplines (design, marketing, product dev), lend a hand where you can, get your hands dirty when needed, and contribute to the collective success of Redfin.
Strong academic record: we are looking for people who excelled in school.
Liberal Arts degree: we want someone who not only writes clearly and edits precisely, but has some intellectual interests and panache too.
Technical acumen: a minimum of three years writing copy in a professional or agency environment and at least one year editing are ideal. No coding necessary but experience with CMS, HTML, publishing tools & processes, and a dabbling in SEO will serve you well.
Survival skills: your toolbox includes dealing with ambiguity and gettin’ scrappy.
Entrepreneurial energy, creativity: in your interview, we’ll ask you for two to three ideas on how our content could be better. Come prepared!
In addition to your resume, please include a cover letter with one suggestion on how to make Redfin better.
You must be based in Seattle, WA USA for this project.
