Here at digital-telepathy, we’re charting a course towards making the web a better place, and we want your words to help get us there.

We’re a user experience design agency dead set on improving the Web and we’ve got a couple big initiatives to get it done. First, we create products (check out Filament, SlideDeck, and Impress) that disrupt the web design standard. We also work closely with an all-star group of startups by reaching deep into our creative well to meet their needs. And last of all, we share on our blog what we do and how we do it in order to inspire and gain valuable feedback from our community.

As you can see, we have a lot of things we want to say and do, spanning from our services to our products to our blog. Yep, this is where you come in!

About you:

  • You live, breathe, and sleep the web. Every day, all day. You have to want to talk and write about it non-stop at the slightest provocation. You want to leave a mark on the evolution of the Web.

  • You have a way with words. That genuine and authentic tone... those smooth alliterative adjectives... People just can’t resist your incredibly charismatic and persuasive way of communicating things.

  • You’re a human newsfeed for all your friends. You’re always first to know of the latest news and trends. After all, your daily RSS feed is filled with the latest from FastCo, Medium, TechCrunch, Wired, The Next Web, and Smashing Magazine.

  • Design and UX are your bread and butter. You might not be a designer, but you stillcompletely gethow these things are the foundation to all great innovation and ideas. As such, there shouldn’t be any blank stares when words like “onboarding” and “emotional design” are mentioned.

  • You speak in animated gifs and internet memes. We come to work in sunglasses, shorts, and fuzzy animal slippers; so you’d better believe that we’re all about being relaxed and having a great sense of humor.

What You’ll Do as Copywriter:

  • Contribute as a regular writer on our Betterment Blog. You’ll be researching, pitching, and writing articles for our highly trafficked design blog on topics including design, inspiration, design/UX philosophy, business, resources, and Filament.

  • Promote and lead audience engagement of the blog content you write via article comments, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Linkedin, and more.

  • Content creation for our products. You’ll be working with the marketing team to help craft a tone and voice for our products and apps, imbuing them with the personality and soul of DT. Content you’ll write for include product pages, emails, blog updates, and contextual UX-related app content. Remember, emotional interaction and storytelling should be in your bones!

Our Requirements:

  • 3+ years of writing experience, preferably within the design and web industry

  • Mastery of grammar and the English language

  • Excellent attention to detail

  • Subject matter expertise: has a huge appreciation for design and UX; extensive knowledge of WordPress; knows the web app software space; is a tech junkie.

  • Experience in design or development is a plus

How to Get the Job:

  • A unique cover letter that explains why you would be perfect for this position. Please include a 3-4 sentence manifesto about how design can be used to create betterment. We can smell form letters from a mile away, so show us you really want this.

  • A resume with pertinent experience. (We don’t care much about grades or your MBA)

  • Three blog articles you’ve proudly written and would pin on your wall of fame.

  • Three examples of copywriting you’ve done for the web. (Including both product-related writing and B2B writing is a plus!
