If you’re a copywriter with five-plus years of experience, a passion for great nonprofit organizations, and an ability to collaborate successfully with both clients and colleagues to produce great creative work, you might be the person we’re looking for.

What does the copywriter do?

Big Duck’s copywriter is responsible for delivering strong and creative written solutions to clients’ challenges—specifically by leading writing projects, including identity systems (names/taglines), messaging assignments (vision/mission/values, key messages, boilerplate, elevator pitch, persuasive messaging), and capital campaign concepts and case statement writing.

Here’s some of what the job includes:

  • Developing strong nonprofit brands, which includes generating name and tagline ideas and coordinating the contributions of colleagues and freelancers
  • Developing effective messaging platforms (vision/mission/values statements, key messages, persuasive messages, boilerplate, and elevator pitch)
  • Developing creative campaign concepts and writing case statements and other materials
  • Presenting work (yours and occasionally the work of others) persuasively and clearly to our clients and facilitating discussion
  • Contributing content to Big Duck’s marketing efforts, including blog posts, podcasts, and other materials


This job is full-time, on-site at our office in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Ideal candidates will be available to start during Q1 2019.

  • Passionate about nonprofit missions
  • Comfortable with Microsoft Office, Keynote, Google Suite, and Asana
  • Willing to tackle any task, large or small
  • Able to meet deadlines, multi-task, prioritize, and manage a large workload independently
