Brand Copywriter

We're looking for a smart and funny copywriter to help us tell the story of Ellevest across our marketing website, emails, and advertising. Ellevest is not your father's financial services company. (In other words, we're interesting.) You'll make big financial decisions and detailed investing transactions feel easy, appropriately serious, and powerfully rewarding. You'll tell stories that shine a light on the gender money gaps women face, in a way that encourages positive action. You'll write in a voice that's informative but not jargoned-out or condescending, and relatably human but not frivolous. You'll always, always be "by women, for women," but never, ever "shrinked and pinked." And you won't be afraid to get bold and tell it like it is. Whatever the task, your prime directive will be to make sure the Ellevest story is super-engaging: compelling, rewarding, informative, accessible, and consistently told. This is a full-time position based in our office in New York City.


  • Work closely with the Marketing and Creative Services teams from conceptualization through iteration to create copy that communicates the Ellevest brand and experience

  • Collaborate closely with our designers to elevate the brand across materials and platforms

  • Think strategically about how each message communicates an idea, evokes an emotion, and encourages an action

  • Participate enthusiastically in creative meetings, bringing your full efforts to each marketing message so that it's best in class: arresting, engaging, and deeply rewarding

  • Craft and help strategize advertising copy that arrests, intrigues, and/or delights and converts

  • Write and help strategize homepage copy that hooks into an emotional need, clearly communicates the value proposition and brings the user further into the Ellevest experience with brevity and wit

  • Write and help strategize direct-response emails and product announcements that stand out in any inbox and deliver information concisely

  • Regularly audit marketing messaging for freshness, consistency, appropriates to target markets, and conversion performance, helping evolve brand identity and voice as the company evolves

  • Be a a swiper, a swotter, and a trendspotter, researching and staying aware of the consumer calendar, pop culture, the competitive landscape, best-in-class advertising, and advertising trends

  • Work with the Executive Producer on other copywriting needs as assigned (it never gets boring over here. Just saying.)


  • 5-7 years of copywriting experience working at an agency or startup

  • A strong digital background across channels, with an impressive portfolio to prove it

  • Demonstrated skill turning complex ideas, market research, and data into engaging, informative, and clear brand language and stories

  • A snappy writer, able to write in a smart, bold, accessible, and fun voice think finance meets feminism and women's lifestyle

  • Brevity.

  • Proficiency adapting that voice across various platforms and uses without losing the brand

  • Familiarity with SEO, UX, A/B testing, and user testing

  • Financial writing experience a huge plus

  • Ability to move quickly from concept to whiteboard to execution

  • Openness to receiving feedback and having your opinions challenged

  • Exceptional grammar, copy editing, proofreading, and verbal communication skills

  • Self-startership in prioritizing projects, communicating progress, and delivering on time

  • The power to thrive in an unstructured, fast-moving and constantly evolving high-growth environment

  • Very high standards

  • Passion for our women-oriented mission
