The Role
Copywriters at Code and Theory have broad writing experience and can concept, write and collaborate across all digital touchpoints. Partnering closely with other members of the creative team, you will deliver crafted, thoughtful work that simultaneously demonstrates both passion for emerging tech, as well as linguistic savvy. 

Our work manifests in digital, retail, social, installations and experiential, coming to life as systems, guides, sites, names, tags, ads and stories. For this particular role, experience on a streetwear brands and/or athletic brand is ideal. You will be tasked to lean into specific briefs and also dance across diverse assignments. 

While levels of experience in these capabilities are natural and welcomed—copywriters should possess the confidence and desire to grow as writers in these areas:

  • Interface Copy: Collaborate with both Interaction Designers and Visual Designers to ensure copy across digital experiences, ranging from mobile to physical spaces, is functional and impactful
  • Buy Flow/Technical: Write clear/tight instructional copy for ecommerce and more, with strategic CTAs
  • Long Form: Journalistic sensibilities to pull the lead and thread a narrative, from articles to manifestos
  • Concepting: Can brainstorm in groups and generate creative ideas and campaigns that are on-strategy, and frequently translate an above-the-line idea into the digital space including web, social, and retail
  • Scriptwriting: Vivid treatments and video scripts that tell stories through both voice over and supers
  • Naming: Brainstorm to produce names and rationale that exhibit strategic, linguistic creativity
  • Deck writing: Effectively explain conceptual ideas and develop an argument with impactful cadence
  • Voice Development: Create and describe a brand voice and explain actionable tactics to achieve it, and very critically, can vary voice across brands and platforms

  • 3+ years of digital / integrated experience, preferably in a digital agency, ideally writing for athletic, fashion, lifestyle or technology brands
  • Clear communicator, who can articulate ideas verbally and explain the work
  • Positive outlook and optimistic attitude; genuinely cares about creating excellent work
  • Can calmly and capably manage project timelines, multi-task and work collaboratively within tight deadlines.
  • Ability to shift voice and tone to write for a broad range of brands and platforms, and deliver a range of innovative creative solutions
  • Excellent attention to detail while working across multiple projects in a fast-paced, ambitious environment
