We've already had several years of 100%+ annual growth and aren’t stopping anytime soon. Want to get on the rocket ship?

Big Picture:
We’re looking for a brilliant storyteller. You’re a writer who can capture the essence, tone and focus of our non-fiction books and communicate them with style, impact and empathy. You embrace strategy and flourish when you’re writing inventive product copy. You make people feel, think and act. Your background could be in advertising, journalism or corporate communications. 

Typical Day:
You’re happiest in an exciting, fast-paced world. Multi-tasking is your friend. You’re flexible, can change gears easily and you’re comfortable in a fluid environment. Every day, you create compelling, engaging, targeted product copy that connects our best-selling books with their unique audiences. You’re a chameleon — and can embody the different personality of each book. In partnership with our design folks, you’ll use your creativity and our consumer insights to write the back-cover copy and build online merchandising strategies and executions to further support conversion.

The Team:
You’ll be part of a growing copywriting and marketing team that has been a central driver of the double-digit-plus growth the company has enjoyed over the last several years. We think big, we work hard, and we have fun.
