Open Positions

Copywriter/Social Media Content Writer

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Full time

BSTRO is a digital agency that uses insights, storytelling, technology, and design to introduce people to products and companies. Everything we do is designed for engagement. We’re looking for a seasoned content writer to join our team of talented problem solvers in delivering standout creative to our clients, who include some of the world’s biggest brands along with well-funded new start-ups.

The Work

There’s no such thing as the daily grind at BSTRO. We work with a wide range of B2C and B2B brands; no two days are ever alike. While concepts, brand messaging, blogging, ad campaigns, social posts, and executing content strategies are part of the mix, we’re principally looking for writers who can turn words into green arrows. Driving success for our clients is paramount. To be considered, you must:

  • Must be fluent in social media writing, posting and campaign management on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn
  • Experienced with SEO and marketing analytics
  • Enjoy writing website content — blog posts, articles, listicles, how-tos, etc
  • Think through solutions and have a point of view; we value opinions, expertise, and effort
  • Be motivated, innovative and creative
  • Have experience writing engaging copy that drives results
  • Take pride in building strong relationships — through written words and with real-life teams

Requirements

  • Above all, we’re looking for a team player who can thrive in our collaborative environment and turn insights into engaging copy.
  • Curious and hyper-aware of what’s happening online. Should follow best-in-class marketing campaigns and all things social media. The individual must also have a broad cultural knowledge to put information into context
  • Strong work ethic and an obsessive eye for detail
  • Spelling and grammar. Yours needs to be excellent.
  • A zeal for collaboration with designers, developers and strategists, and our account team
  • The desire to deliver work that makes people stop and take notice — and makes our clients heroes within their organization
  • The ability to develop cross-channel ideas that translate effectively and seamlessly across the marketing ecosystem — on- and offline
  • A can-do attitude, sense of humour and team spirit — prima donnas, curmudgeons and glory hogs need not apply
  • At least two years experience, with results you can summarize

If that sounds like you, drop us a line! (And please include a copy of, or link to, your writing samples. Applications without work samples will not be considered.)
