Quirky has begun to assemble the highest performing team in history, with a single, but ambitious vision:

TO MAKE INVENTION ACCESSIBLE

With a process, environment, and organization where the realities and complexities of execution do not stand in the way of a good idea.

With an entirely new type of company: one that involves all who are interested in its decisions, and ultimately shares its success with those who helped achieve it.

And last but not least, with a brand built around the excitement, creativity, and the reality of invention.

Quirky is looking for a Copywriter to join our team in NYC.
