We are a fully remote digital marketing agency that seeks a collaborative and experienced new team member to lead our editing and content generation, contribute to and maintain long-term client relationships, and support our company growth.
Do you love teasing out the voice of a brand when a client can’t quite articulate it? When writing marketing copy, do you savor finding just the right word? Are you a friendly “grammar grouch” in disguise? If our Mission, Vision, and Core Values resonate with you, we may be a fantastic match.
You are flexible, can give constructive feedback to junior writers who see you as a writing guru, and have a can-do attitude. You can independently manage your time, consistently meet deadlines, are highly organized and detail-oriented, and communicate efficiently and effectively. You want to be part of a digital marketing team that recognizes the important role you play in our success, and love supporting small businesses owners and their teams to reach their dreams.

Content Writing and Copywriting
- Produce regular on-brand, informative, SEO-optimized blog posts for our small business clients in a range of industries
- Produce first drafts of sparkling, on-brand web copy that distills client messaging that helps our clients explain how their products and services solve their customers’ problems
- Interview clients (via phone, Zoom, and email) to distill brand voice and gather information for blog posts and web copy; be able to turn a pile of notes into a clear story that builds trust between our clients and their prospects, presents our clients as thought leaders in their industry, and motivates readers to take action
- Attend virtual client meetings (2-6 per month) between 9am-4pm ET
- Write and edit compelling, on-brand copy for the J.Scott Marketing website
- Manage relationships with clients whose primary services include messaging
Qualifications and skills:
- 2-5 years experience writing digital marketing content, conversion writing, or comparable writing skill and experience; expert editor
