What we're looking for in a Lead Copywriter, Content

In this role, you'll partner closely with content strategy to produce expert-driven commentary that lives across the Better digital ecosystem.

  • You have a portfolio that shows a rich, creative spectrum of copywriting work
  • You can identify content pieces that will support your clients' marketing goals
  • You can take complex information and reframe it in a way that anyone can understand
  • You are at least somewhat familiar with the world of finance (or you're down to learn)
  • You are empathetic by nature and work well with others
  • You're at the expert level in G-suite (bonus if you know your way around Figma)
  • You're a self-motivated individual who doesn't wait to be told what to do
  • You take criticism in your stride and know when to stand up for your ideas
  • You die a little inside when you see that someone left out an Oxford comma


The Better mission is rooted in values that drive us.

  • We do what's in the best interest of the consumer, not ourselves
  • We have growth mindsets, not fixed ones
  • We believe that success lies in execution, not credentials
  • We act like owners, not just employees
  • We work to find answers on our own, not wait for them to be given to us
  • We optimize for mission, not ego


Our mission speaks for itself-we continue to outpace the industry at every turn. We've recently joined forces in partnership with Ally Bank, and our backers have helped build some of the most transformative tech and finance companies in history. Kleiner Perkins, Goldman Sachs, American Express, Citigroup, Activant Capital, Ally Bank, and others have invested in our vision for what homeownership can be.
