We need a big ideas person who can also edit copy for pesky details like grammar and speling errors. Saw that? Good. Keep reading! You must be a strong writer and be steeped in popular (and even unpopular) culture. With any luck, you’re already interested in photography, illustration, type and social media. If not, be prepared to get very interested.

What’s cool about writing for Corbis? Our target audience is creatives. People like you and the art director sitting next to you. Our aim is to create unexpected, I-wish-I’d-thought-of-that marketing pieces that engage, inspire, and sell to our discerning, sophisticated audience. You’ll be working across all brands, including Corbis Images, Corbis Motion, GreenLight Rights, GreenLight Music, Corbis Entertainment, and Veer.
