We’re looking for a talented and enthusiastic Senior writer who can deliver consistently brilliant content for one of the world’s fastest-growing layer 1 blockchains.
You’ll be confident at writing in different voices and be able to craft copy that is smart without being complicated, simple without being patronizing, and enthusiastic without being silly. Great copy doesn’t work alone, so you’ll need to be able to feed into the concepting of visual assets too.
Experience of working to tight deadlines, in an agency or equivalent environment, and a working knowledge of blockchain, cryptocurrency, and how they work are a must, along with feeling confident about interviewing people and composing longer-form articles.
You’ll be working on campaigns and projects that are global in focus, and game-changing in scope, so with the right attitude and a willingness to try new things, you’ll have the opportunity to make great work in an incredibly fast and dynamic space.
