Seeking an energetic wordsmith with defined storytelling muscles, a limber vocabulary and a heart for working at a mission-driven company. We work (and play) in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment and we’re looking for a talented and passionate writer to add to our team. Ideally, you’d have experience writing product copy for apparel, you’d know the outdoor and/or yoga industry, and you’d be a FileMaker wiz. Or you’re just a really quick learner.

What you’ll be responsible for:
  • Product copy for each season’s line of apparel and accessories for catalog and website
  • Product naming
  • Retail signage copy
  • Direct marketing copy
  • Occasional internal copy assignments

  • Ability to tell a compelling story in as few as 20 words or as many as 200

  • Ability to prioritize tasks and meet deadlines (accomplished plate spinners, please apply)

  • Humility to ask for help when needed

  • Thick skin – because your copy may get revised several times before it’s final

  • Sense of humor – because it’s what keeps us all sane in the thick of it

  • A full life outside of work

  • Perspective
