Technical copywriter/generally curious word-nerd wanted.

Maybe you’re just starting out in the ad world. Maybe you’re mid-level. Maybe you’re a former traveling-circus member just trying to rejoin mainstream society. We don’t really care.

What we do care about is that you have editing and proofing skills that make people afraid to send you texts. We care that you can (and really want to) become an expert on our clients’ businesses faster than Beyoncé gets 1000 likes on Instagram. And we care that you can string letters into words, words into sentences, and sentences into moving masterpieces of both technical and creative prose that could be set to music and open next week on Broadway.

Brochures, video scripts, websites, print ads, digital banners, social posts — you will write it all and you will write the hell out of it. At least a couple years of professional work is desired, and experience writing for health care or another highly scientific/technical field is not required but will certainly grab our attention. So if you’re ready to put your creativity, eye for detail, and all-around kick-assery to work, see how to apply below.

Note: This position reports to the Senior Copywriter.

About Hunt Adkins

Hustle is our love language. For over 30 years, Hunt Adkins has helped brands accelerate bottom-line growth. We solve business problems by interweaving modern culture, commerce, and technology for future-defining brands. We are business builders and opportunists who relish in the details and consistently exceed expectations.

As an FYI, we are currently working a hybrid schedule — Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday in our downtown Minneapolis office; Mondays and Fridays are work from home. We do require vaccination to work in the office; masks are not imperative.

How to apply

Please send your cover letter with portfolio link or work samples and resume together in a PDF. Include your salary request (we are offering $45-$65K per year, commensurate with experience) in the email message. Send all materials to our retained search manager, Label your subject line “Your Name, Technical Copywriter > Hunt Adkins.” In your letter, respond to 2-3 of these questions…

  1. Introduce yourself in the style that best represents you.
  2. Tell us what you are looking for next…in 5 years…and further out.
  3. Explain why technical writing is your thing. And what you like second best.
  4. Leave us shaking in our boots by your editing/proofreading skills.

You will receive a response to your application from our search manager. If we’re interested in talking with you, she’ll arrange the first meeting with our Creative Director, and hopefully a second interview with our Senior Copywriter. It will then be determined if a third meeting is needed.

We look forward to hearing from you!
