Senior Copywriter

EF Ultimate Break

Cambridge, MA USA

The role

As part of a fun team that loves what they do, you will inspire young adults between 18 and 29 to sign up for life-changing travel experiences across the globe. Our Senior Copywriter opportunity lets you combine your strengths in writing, ideation and customer experience development into a unique, rewarding role. You will be a leader in a creative, technology and production team that works to conceptualize and produce high profile work. Youll be counted on to be a multi-channel copywriting expert, an effective marketing strategist, and an original thinker. The person we are looking for has experience working on multiple projects for multiple teams with overlapping deadlines.

Sound like you? Then youre our type of person. Keep reading!

If you dig writing anything from Facebook and Instagram ads to long form stories, if you like to dance with designers (metaphorically or otherwise), if you get all giddy about a great turn of phrase, if your favorite question is, "What's in it for the reader?"...then you're our kind of writer.

The person we are looking for has been around the copy block a few times, maybe even working at an agency before. Regardless, this person will take great pleasure in making international travel irresistible. We do not merely want you to contribute to all the great things we are already working on. We want you to pipe in and say, Hey, I have some ideas. Besides pitching your fantastic ideas as part of our team, you will be writing short- and long-form copy for video, interactive properties, travel itineraries, blogs, postcards, emails and whatever else comes along.

Your writing must be sharp and lean. Your grammar should be impeccable. You should be enthusiastic and eager to learn as well as teach. You should be game to do some proofreading from time to time. Of course, you play nice with fast deadlines and you're a master juggler.

Employee Testimonials

Helene Vincent
Manager of Product Innovation, Language Immersion Tours

It's a big university town so there are always concerts and cultural events. There are also people from all over the world so you can hear all kinds of languages. It's large enough to be exciting, but small enough that we have a real sense of community.

Kate Berseth
Executive Vice President

I was used to a fast-paced and informal environment in previous companies, but I think what sets EF apart is the physical office space – light, open, minimal, elegant, fun and happy. It sold me the first time I walked into the Boston office.

Angela Xu
EVP, Recruitment and Employee Development

I love the fact that there are so many universities in Boston, a city of culture and intelligence. There are so many meet ups you can join, to meet new people.
