Reports to Creative Director
We’re looking for a full-time, mid-to-senior level copywriter to join our growing team in Irvine, CA. Qualified candidates will have a minimum of five years professional experience and a portfolio of prior work demonstrating strong conceptual capabilities and nuanced writing execution. Freelance to full-time where possible, but not required.
Envoy is an independent agency that offers an energetic work environment, a diverse range of clients and projects, and the opportunity to make a measurable impact on the future of our company. We’re an entrepreneurial organization that demands versatility, flexibility and critical thinking from our team members. It’s what we refer to as “the maker mindset.”

Desired Skills and Experience
This position requires prior digital experience, a strong desire to work in digital media, and a “learning never stops” attitude toward technology. Among others, you’ll collaborate with UX designers, front- and back-end developers, digital producers and our analytics team. The canvases you’ll be asked to turn into art include websites, banners, apps and social media, just to name a few.
Concept and craft.
Some writers have a talent for quickly generating unique, thought-provoking and strategically sound ideas that form the foundation of long-running campaigns. Others are more focused on precise execution—finding the perfect words, voice, rhythm and tone to express concepts in their purest form. We’re seeking a copywriter who can do both, from conceiving the overarching idea to polishing the finer points of copy.
Our writer doesn’t need to be told when, how or where to research. Sometimes we’re provided thorough reference, background information and source materials to read. Other times, we’re on our own. We need a, wait for it, “self-starter” who ends up knowing our clients’ businesses better than they do. That’s no exaggeration. We’ve had clients say it.
Talent and effort.
Many writers have a natural gift for creativity. Ideas come easily and they produce a dozen concepts or paragraphs in the time it takes others to come up with two. Some writers lack that level of inherent talent, but make up for it with irrepressible passion and relentless hard work. Once again, we need both in a single person. We’re a mid-size shop doing the work of a behemoth, so everyone contributes big ideas and rolls up their sleeves in crunch time.
Professional creative folks walk a fine line. They tend to be passionate, thoughtful and protective of their work, which can make them prickly on occasion. Comes with the territory. But we are NOT a prima donna culture and, fundamentally, we believe constructive critiques and extensive collaboration make for better creative products. You’re not much help to us without your ego, but it’s a tremendous help when you keep it from view. We build teams, not individuals. We work with our clients, not just for them. And we don’t get along for its own sake, we get along to get more—and better—work accomplished.
