Copywriter (digital); Boston, MA

Copywriter, Digital

Boston, MA

This is not an advertising agency or a digital marketing shop. They don't do print, radio, TV or direct.  Digital is not a banner campaign. Their complex, innovative work is technology- and user experience- driven. They design digital and physical branded experiences, products, services, and environments for clients seeking new ways to drive their business or solve business challenges through technology. They believe in the power of digital to transform the way businesses and consumers can interact with one another. They get excited about brands, people, storytelling and, of course, the internet (Duh). Their open, experiential work environment is driven by a collaborative spirit, entrepreneurial attitude, smart work and hard play without the crazy hours. (In other words, Don Draper doesn't work here.) They look for like-minded people who  who want to invent the digital future.
