About this role
As a Copywriter at Curated, you will be responsible for crafting brand-conscious, conversion-driven copy seen by millions of people every day across our owned properties and campaigns. You’ll play an integral role on our mission to humanize online shopping by building trust with our audiences and helping them make the right purchase decisions guided by real experts.

You’re versatile in your tone, adapting it on the fly for diverse audiences, while maintaining a consistent Curated brand voice.
Your responsibilities include
- Coming up with creative ideas in response to briefs and understanding how key brand messages and business directives can be worked into briefs in a creative way
- Developing strong empathy for and understanding of our audiences and their motivations, using data and market research to come up with new copy angles to test
- Working with Brand and Performance Marketing Teams to write copy that helps deliver the best Curated experience for users across all touchpoints (product & campaigns)
- Creating multiple copy options for testing to improve engagement, consistently monitoring performance and finding ways to improve conversion rates
- Knowing which levers to pull if copy is underperforming
- Creating repeatable processes to write high converting copy as we launch many new product verticals & channels
- Continuously developing and acting as guardian of the brand’s TOV across business departments including People Team, Community Support, PR
- 4+ years of experience writing marketing copy for an agency or brand
- Experience writing for ad platforms including Facebook, Google ads, YouTube, and email
- Exceptional attention to detail with excellent verbal and written communication skills
- Some previous experience with content/creative strategy and complex multi-channel rollouts is desirable
- Fluent in direct response marketing concepts and best practices
- Motivated to produce results independently and with a team
- Thrive in a fast-paced startup environment
