About Our Company John McNeil Studio is a collective of strategists, writers, designers, filmmakers, technologists, musicians and photographers who help companies tell compelling stories and build brands. We love digital but embrace print. We are founded in aesthetics, but also in utility. We make things that make brands grow.

We're looking for a Senior Copywriter to join our growing team in Berkeley, CA. This is a perfect opportunity for an ambitious writer looking to take charge and be recognized for your success. We want someone who consistently delivers sound strategic thinking in the form of powerfully expressed creative messages that maximize and explore the possibilities offered by today's changing media landscape. You should be a good listener and original storyteller who thrives in a fast-paced environment.

Whether the project is big (a global campaign theme) or relatively small (an online banner), we strongly believe that every project we take on represents an opportunity to build a brand.

Role:

• Write compelling and effective campaign concepts, themes, taglines and scripts
• Brainstorm, conceptualize and collaborate with creative team, including other copywriters, designers, art directors, strategists, producers and programmers
• Collaborate with project managers and creative directors on project needs, deliverables and timelines
• Bring a positive, inquisitive attitude to every assignment, recognizing it as a opportunity to build a brand and demonstrate your talents as a creative thinker
