Description

As a Junior Copywriter at Warby Parker, you’ll ensure that the Warby Parker brand voice is consistent across all departments and in customer-facing materials. This is a role for a generalist with sharp-as-a-tack writing skills and a super-creative mind: You’ll be working on everything from collections to social media to emails to communications to special projects. Above all, words make you happy. You love words. And novelty snacks. (More on that in a sec.)


What you’ll do:



  • Write collection and retail copy for the web, emails, product descriptions, and press releases

  • Source inspiration, generate ideas, and share them with the team

  • Take initiative in fixing and communicating inconsistencies and mistakes; adhere to our internal Style Guide and AP Stylebook

  • Implement and execute copy and editing processes

  • Research frame and color names for future collections

  • Write blog and social media posts and maintain the blog schedule

  • Fulfill copy requests from every department company-wide

  • Collaborate with the creative team on concepting marketing and creative projects

  • Proofread, profread, proofread

  • Organize past and current documents to maintain Copy team archive


Who you are:



  • A superb writer with an editorial bent

  • A quick learner who picks up new skills the way a lint-roller picks up fuzz

  • A workhorse with a “no task is too small” approach

  • An excellent grammarian

  • A team player who communicates well—clearly, kindly, often—within our department and across the company

  • An omnivorous reader and pop culture consumer, whose taste spans the NYMag Approval Matrix

  • A creative thinker with a sense of humor

  • A strong communicator and collaborator

  • A writer with 1+ years of professional writing experience, either editorial or copywriting

  • A writer with published editorial work of some kind that demonstrates your smarts, your command of language, and your taste (in print or online)


 


Here’s what we’re all about:



  • Organizing team portraits

  • Uncovering our deepest truths through personality tests

  • Exchanging joke dollars for well-executed feats of humor

  • Subjecting ourselves to experimental (but totally harmless) beauty treatments

  • Orchestrating novelty snack taste tests


If this sounds fun (we have fun), we hope you’ll drop us a line. Excited to hear from you!


About us:


Warby Parker was founded in 2010 with a lofty objective: to offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price while leading the way for socially conscious businesses. By circumventing traditional channels and designing our frames in house, we’re able to offer insanely high-quality eyewear at decidedly non-insane prices (i.e., from $95 with prescription lenses—a fraction of the going price!).


In the last seven years, we’ve grown to over 50 retail locations in the U.S. and Canada, opened our first optical lab in upstate New York, and launched two of our own iOS apps. And for three years running, Fast Company has named us one of the world’s most innovative companies.


We’re also a certified B Corporation, so we’re held to the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility. This means lots of different things, like operating carbon-neutrally and distributing a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair we sell. (We’re big believers that businesses can scale and be profitable while doing good in the world.)


Of course, all work and no play makes an extremely dull office, and no one likes an extremely dull office. (We sure don’t.) As an employee at Warby Parker, you can look forward to company outings, guest speakers, volunteering opportunities, and other brain- (and/or taste-bud-) stimulating activities. It also doesn’t hurt that our team is just great company.


Some benefits and perks of working at Warby Parker:



  • Health, vision, and dental insurance

  • Flexible “My Time” vacation policy

  • Retirement savings plan with a company match

  • Parental leave (non-birthing parents included)

  • Cell phone plan reimbursement

  • A health-and-wellness stipend

  • Free eyewear (plus discounts for friends and family)

  • And more (just ask!)
