Copywriter

Capital One is seeking a talented copywriter to join one of our Brand Creative teams. But not just any writer, one who has a passion for ideas regardless of the channel, and a special knack for all things digital. We want a writer that also loves thinking through highly usable and intuitive experiences mixed with creative cleverness. Someone as passionate for users as they are for their copy. Someone who cares about the customer experience and will constantly strive to make it better.

You and an art director will partner to work on a variety of web based projects. You’ll be involved with everything from small product page changes up to creating, building and presenting new and unique experiences. You won’t spend your days coding, but we want someone familiar with that process. You’ll collaborate with digital, strategy, and business partners along the way to build and refine your ideas and our products.

You’ll join an existing team, but this is very much a new role. You’ll have the opportunity to influence our processes, architecture, and approach. We’re looking for the right mix of customer obsession, creative writing, high standards and problem solving.

What you will bring to the role:

  • A problem solver—conceptual thinking and strategic problem solving are key
  • Think visually about how the copy comes to life
  • A team player who readily collaborates with all types of people
  • Equally comfortable writing a clever headline as you are writing longer copy
  • Aclear understanding of tone and the ability to adapt your writing style based on the message and your intended audience
  • Understand the importance of creative strategy, use it to create powerful work, and can clearly present it to others for buy-in
  • Positive outlook and attitude
  • Deliver quality work, on time, with exceptional attention to detail
  • Familiarity with HTML, CSS, UI design, responsive/adaptive design principles are a plus. You don’t have to do it, just understand how you can use those tools to your advantage.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree or military experience.
  • At least 2 years of work experience specializing in communications or creative writing.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • At least 2 years of Advertising agency or 2 years of marketing agency experience.
  • At least 1 year of Financial industry experience.

At this time, Capital One will not sponsor a new applicant for employment authorization for this position.
