Muse needs a new writer. But not just any writer. We’re looking for a mid-level, multi-faceted copy and content writer who is fluent in the fine art of writing to convince and convert. The right candidate is a well-read, well-heeled person of discriminating copywriting taste. In other words, someone who turns a nose up at trite concepts and overused phrases. This writer must punctuate with perfection. Alliterate with ease. Concept collaboratively, then cross the t’s and dot the i’s all the way through final approval.

This is an ideal job for a marketer who embraces the buyer journey and can connect the dots along the way. You’ll be well rewarded for your efforts, building a solid and diverse portfolio to include a client roster of game-changing brands both large and small. Between 5-8 years of agency experience is a must, with consideration given to more tenured copywriters as well.

*This is a full-time, Cleveland-based position. Freelancers need not apply.*

When applying, please include your cover letter and resume with application, along with a link to samples. Please email these materials to jackie@museheadquarters.com.
