The Opportunity

Do you live and breathe reading and writing? Are you a digital content junkie – always staying current on the latest trends in blogs, social media and digital technology? Are you seeking to launch or expand your career as a Content Writer, in the fast-paced world of digital content marketing? Great. We’ve been looking for you.

The Role

As a Content Writer at Three Ships, you will have meaningful content responsibilities and will play a vital role in our content production process. You’ll be responsible for delivering perfect, accurate and well-researched copy that will engage our audience, rank well in Google and be both informative and entertaining. Further, you’ll have the opportunity to not only write amazing pieces of content day in and out, but also participate in creative and analytical content strategy sessions, social media planning and execution. You’ll be encouraged and expected to think outside-the-box and gain confidence in your decision-making and copy capabilities.

What You CV Shows

  • Bachelor’s degree in English, Creative Writing, Journalism, Communications or related field preferred. Involvement in related school activities (school newspaper, editorial staff, news staff) or previous work experience is a plus.
  • At least 2 year of proven dexterity with written language: You can translate ideas and complex research into attractive, precise copy that engages and informs your audience. You are comfortable pivoting between topics and writing for different platforms, while still maintaining a consistent voice. You’ll demonstrate this with a portfolio of varied writing samples directed at different audiences (maybe a technical academic paper on one hand, and an album review or blog post on another).
  • Independence and maturity: You are comfortable putting your head down and producing excellent work without constant supervision. You demonstrate maturity and have made it clear that we can count on you to show up every day on time, smiling and ready to go. You prove this to us through a successful track-record of positive professional experiences with your previous jobs, internships, leadership in your school, or dedication to a blog.
  • Experience with and passion for SEO and product writing: Experience in SEO-first, conversion-oriented writing is a plus. If you don’t have this experience, you are eager and passionate about learning and applying these strategies to your content in a consistent and natural way.
  • Problem solving and agility: You thrive in an environment where there is no playbook for success. You can adapt to different tasks and shift priorities as needed. You have an entrepreneurial spirit and are energized by doing work that hasn’t been done before.
  • An inherent drive to be excellent: You are not satisfied with average. You are enthusiastic and committed to do whatever it takes to get the job done at a world-class level and don’t check out because it’s 5PM or a weekend.
