Difference Maker


In the role of Copywriter

  • Good Person


 


At Vicimus, we believe remarkable talent, enthusiasm, and creative thinking add up to great work. We’re looking for a creative thinker with excellent writing and research skills to help us create that work as our full-time, in-house copywriter. As a member of the creative team, our copywriter will write and edit copy for a variety of projects (including ad campaigns, social media content, sales material, articles & blogs, scripts, presentations, pitches, websites for clients as well as our own brands and products and a LOT more). We fancy ourselves as an Automotive Marketing & Technology firm who work every tier in automotive from individual roof tops to dealer groups all the way up to the manufacturer.


The most successful copywriter will be a quick learner with a versatile writing style on both long form editorial copy and big idea advertising short form copy. You can easily switch your mind set in a single day from writing a social post to an article to a script to reviewing a presentation and to jamming with other staff in thinking up the next big idea to help make our products and the Vicimus brand stand out on a global stage.


Portfolio of work is required for all applicants showing long form, short form and campaign work examples.
