FULL TIME COPYWRITER

Portland, OR

We are Nemo Design of Portland, Oregon. We work with the best outdoor, active and lifestyle brands by developing strategy and designing experiences with the consumer at the heart of everything we do. We are looking for a copywriter to join our team. Your words will be used to build authentic and inspiring stories, uncover insights and new opportunities, and solve business problems.   

Together we’ll be creating things like names, headlines, establishing voice and tone, graphics with pithy lines, identity systems, guidelines, packaging, retail spaces, events, content, and…you get the idea. The kind of stuff that would be even better with your words sprinkled liberally throughout. 

 

 SPECIFIC THINGS WE’RE AFTER:  

  • A writing voice that is fresh, fun, bold, gut-wrenching, straightforward, tear-jerking, sassy, salty, encouraging, slightly dangerous. 

 

  •  A candidate who has been battle-tested on the front lines of published endeavors. You have agency experience, media experience, a catalog of curated content, a thing you’ve launched, or a body of work that helps us judge the speed, volume, consistency, versatility, and resonating aura of your craft. 

 

  • Strong collaborative and communication skills. You’ll be required to persuasively represent your specific writerly doings, lean in and participate to accomplish goals with your multidisciplinary team. 

 

  •  A hunger to come in daily and impress our team with your actions, character, and contributions to the studio. 

 

  • An entrepreneurial openness to try new things, get smarter, share what you know, modify your thinking, adapt your process, tune your skills. 

 

 

 

 

Nemo is an open, energetic creative environment. We are also an equal opportunity employer, and this full time position is available to any candidate who meets our standards.  

Some travel required. Maybe. 

 

WE WILL GIVE YOU THESE: 

 

Competitive salary, based on your level of experience. 

 A generous benefits package which includes health, dental, 401K, paid time off, and more. 

 A fun, friendly, and collaborative workspace with state-of-the-art creative tools, kick ass co-workers and amazing clients. 

Nemo has been named by Outside Magazine as one of the top 100 “Best Places To Work” four years in a row.
