Zendesk is looking for a copywriter who can write about business software without being boring. This is a creative role in which you will collaborate with the Product, Design, and Marketing Teams.

The day to day:
- Use words and ideas (and sometimes emojis) to shine a light on the charm and personality of the Zendesk Brand
- Help brainstorm and conceptualize all manner of projects
- Think about storytelling and how to craft engaging narratives for our live events
- Write copy for the marketing website, print collateral, online ads, video scripts, emails, etc.
- Write CTAs that get people to click on the right buttons
- Work with product marketers to refine messaging and extract benefits from lists of features
- Help other departments with written communications

The Bigger picture:
- Writing is the nuts and bolts of this job. But there’s also more to it. You will be a strong communicator who can think conceptually and work with our team to bring creativity to a wide range of projects. We’re looking for someone who’s obsessed enough to scrutinize the details of banner ads, but who can also see the big picture and sew a red thread across media, marketing, and internal communications.
- You will be asked to think big... bring ideas to guide the narrative and make sure we’re telling a consistent story across brand touch points.
- You’ll work with designers, animators, and video producers to make sure it’s all fresh, and interesting, and on-brand.

- 3-5 years of creative agency experience (or equivalent)
- Experience working in-house would be good; B2B experience preferred
- Experience supporting teams with translation and trans-creation for regional markets
- Extraordinary written and verbal communication skills
- Expert understanding of writing mechanics and English Grammar (UK and US)
- Familiarity with standard methodologies, trends, and styles in all aspects of writing for the web
- A college degree – or a good story about why you don’t have one

Note: Only applications submitted with a portfolio or writing samples will be considered

Attributes we are looking for:
- Humour... We have a sense of humor and can laugh at ourselves.We look for people who can do the same.
- Honesty... We like to surround ourselves with people who will speak up when something looks off or is headed in the wrong direction. We also like to communicate our brand through honest, simple, charming language.
- Skills... We want someone who can truly understand our brand, embody it in their writing, and help to weave it into everything the company does.
- Beautiful Simplicity... A lot of B2B technology companies like to overcomplicate things. Not us. We always strive to be beautifully simple – in both our product and our marketing.
