John McNeil Studio is looking for a Junior Writer to join our team in Berkeley, CA.  Our studio believes in the power of ideas to make brands grow.  We are a collection of strategists, writers, designers, filmmakers, technologists, musicians and photographers.  As a collective we help companies tell compelling stories through communications.  We work with brands but aren't bound by them, love digital but still believe in print and are founded in aesthetics but also in utility.  We make things.  We build brands.  

We strongly believe that every project we take on represents an opportunity to build a brand. Whether the project is big (a global campaign theme) or relatively small (an online banner), we need a writer who consistently delivers sound strategic thinking in the form of powerfully expressed creative messages that maximize and explore the possibilities offered by today's changing media landscape.

Role:

  • Produce insightful and unique copy. 
  • Brainstorm, concept and collaborate with creative team, including other copywriters, designers, art directors, strategists, producers and programmers.
  • Bring a positive, inquisitive attitude to every assignment, recognizing it as a opportunity to build a brand and demonstrate your talents as a creative thinker.

Qualifications:

  • B.A. in Communications, Journalism, English or related field. 
  • Minimum 1 year of experience concepting and writing for a wide variety of media. 
  • Ability to quickly become familiar with multiple clients, their marketing positioning and key messaging. 
  • Eager, fast learner in matters of agency process, client protocol and product technology.
  • Ability to think creatively and write creatively for tech and other industries.
  • Excellent verbal communication skills.
  • Zealous adherence to deadlines, even the ridiculous ones.

This job offers an excellent opportunity for growth. You'll work hard, learn a ton, and have fun working with a talented group of professionals. This is a full time position which includes a generous benefits package including healthcare benefits, FSA and 401k.  Please no phone calls about the job.
