Senior Copywriter

| Greater Boston Area

ezCater is the world’s largest online marketplace for catering – a $60+ billion market in the U.S. We make it superbly easy for businesspeople to find and order great food for meetings and events, and we help our catering partners grow their business. We’re backed by $320 million in venture funding and in early 2019 were valued at $1.25 billion. Our mission is to power the world’s catering, and we’ll make it happen – even more surely if you come help us.

We're looking for a Senior Copywriter to join our marketing team and help build out and tune our world-class brand. We want to talk to you if you believe in the power of words. We want to talk to you if you if you can argue over the Oxford comma, find the right replacement for boring or snooty words, and slash five sentences into three. Grammar errors bug you (but you don’t interrupt people to correct them). When others find mistakes in your own writing, you’re mortified. Corporatese makes you queasy, but gun to your head, you could write it because you’re just that versatile (we will never ask this of you). You’re in touch with tech trends, e-commerce, and pop culture. You’re inventive and know how to just figure things out. When it’s all hands on deck, you can think on your feet. You want to know the score and you’re motivated to win.


You will:

  • Be best friends with our brand personas. Know their wants and needs, their fears and frustrations, how to reach them, and what they need to hear.
  • Write copy that inspires action — ads that grab attention, landing pages that convert, social posts that get likes and shares, emails that people open and read.
  • Experiment with messaging and prove which words work. Be fearless of failure. Celebrate the wins, learn from the flops, and never stop improving.
  • Wrangle our nebulous writing style into a consistent, compelling brand voice.
  • Create a style guide, become the ambassador of our brand voice, and elevate the quality of writing throughout the company

You have:

  • 5-7 years of experience in writing copy and conceptual work for B2C and B2B companies
  • Superb organizational skills -- you can think two steps ahead
  • Knowledge of how to work with data to guide a strategy
  • An affection for “just figuring things out” and inventing whatever idea or approach could accomplish our objectives AND an ability to play well with others
  • A “get it done” mentality: maniacal attention to detail coupled with a commitment to deliver high-quality work on deadline


If you’ve made it this far, you could be exactly who we’re looking for. Please include a link to writing samples and a cover letter telling us why you are a great fit for ezCater and why ezCater is a great fit for you!


What you’ll get from us:

Importantly, you’ll get a tremendous amount of authority and autonomy. You’ll own your outcomes and see measurable results for your efforts. With ezCater’s radical transparency and trust, you’ll have open access to the data that drives our decisions. You'll have a coaching environment to learn and develop, and ezUniversity sessions will provide plenty of opportunities to expand your mind.

At the same time, you’ll get sane working hours and a huge amount of flexibility around work/life balance. Have people in your life – of any age – who always, often, or sometimes need your help? We make room for that. Have a bad thing or a good thing happen to you? We make room for that, too.

Oh, and here’s what else you’ll get: Market salary, stock options you’ll help make worth a lot, the usual holidays, all-you-can-eat vacation, 401K, health/dental/FSA, long-term disability insurance, subsidized T-passes, a great office in the heart of Boston, a tremendous amount of responsibility and autonomy, wicked awesome co-workers, cupcakes (and many more goodies), and knowing that you helped get this rocket ship to the moon.

ezCater is an equal opportunity employer. We embrace humans of every background, appearance, race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, and disability status. At the same time, we do not employ jerks, even brilliant ones.
