Senior Copywriter (Boston)

| Boston
Boston, USA
Circle is on a mission to make it possible for everyone, everywhere to create and share value. We're building a new kind of consumer finance. Unlike existing systems that are closed and proprietary, we use open internet standards and protocols, including the blockchain, to build our products. 

We've already made sending money around the world free and as easy as sending a text with Circle Pay. With Circle Trade, we're market makers for the top crypto currencies and offer OTC trading services. Now, we're expanding our offerings by building a cryptocurrency investment product (https://invest.circle.com) to enable anyone to buy and sell cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. 

What does that mean for the global economy? It's more open. More inclusive. And more empowering. 

We're seeking a word nerd for our in-house creative team. This position is much more than copy. It’s thinking conceptually, writing creatively, questioning strategically and laughing uproariously. That last part isn’t required but if you think we’re funny, it helps. If we think you’re funny, it helps a lot.

While you may have never worked in-house or for a startup, you are totally obsessed with words and their power. You have ideas that are dying to get out of your brain. You have brands you admire. You will rewrite a subject line 50 times to get it right and understand how difficult simple can be. In your head, you rewrite ads you see on the T or emails you get from companies. You wonder how certain commercials ever got made and wish you came up with others.

What you'll work on...

  • In-product copy for the app
  • Website copy, promotional landing pages, marketing emails, display ads, social advertising
  • Corporate assets like PR infographics, presentation decks or HR materials
  • Video

What you gotta have...

  • 5 years’ writing experience (consumer brands preferred)
  • Strong creative concepting
  • Priority juggling and deadline meeting
  • Typing skillz, obvs
  • Eagle eyes and problem solving brain
  • Online portfolio that excites us
  • Circle Pay (our app — download it and use it)

Insider's spotlight

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

If I can, I walk over to them, but I typically message them on Slack about an idea or contextualized piece of customer feedback. With that info, we can better understand how to enhance overall customer experience and how we can improve it.

Customer Experience Associate

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Coming to Circle from a law firm was a huge change for me, but I’ve learned so much in just a few months. From learning about cryptocurrency to employment law to stock options, I love that I get to work on something new every day. I’m excited to continue working for a company that gives me an opportunity to learn something new every day.
