Job opening: Senior Writer

Oliver Russell in Boise is looking to add a Senior Writer to their team. From the job listing on their website:

We’re on the hunt for a senior writer with 10+ years experience.

You’ll be working with clients that have a product, service, or business model that benefits society. We’re looking for someone with a desire to change world through social or environmental impact and has demonstrated this commitment in her or his life.

Versatility is a must. You will sharpen your pencil on writing everything from email subject lines to copy editing to product naming to campaign concepts.

Positive attitude and a healthy, not unruly, ego required. You’ll be working in a team environment. Not all the work will be glorious. Some of it requires day-to-day workmanship and commitment to craft. Other times, you’ll be seeking the sublime.

You should be comfortable meeting tight deadlines and prioritizing a varied workload in a fast-paced, sometimes unpredictable, and demanding environment.  Strong experience with online writing techniques and best practices is a plus. 

In other words, they’re looking for “an ass-kicking, well rounded, experienced writer who wants to work for a socially responsible company committed to making a social impact.”

Check  out the job description on their site for more information and how to apply.
