This Role is Tailor-Made for You Because:
You understand that words can delight, inform and inspire. You are also obsessed with product.

  • Create thoughtful and persuasive gift guides for all holidays, finding new ways to surprise and delight the customer
  • Act as a steward for our brand, protecting and maintaining its essence through copy tone. Ensure marketing copy does not sound like "marketing speak." Maintain a mindset of elevated yet unpretentious luxury, and social first.
  • Seek opportunities to infuse our brand mission and purpose of empowering women to build awareness and community
  • Have an informed POV and create healthy dialogue with partners who brief in projects. Bring outside thinking to marketing projects; challenge status quo.
  • Start a conversation about emerging trends that leads to a series of emails, shops and social stories. You're tuned into the zeitgeist.
  • Problem-solve with cross-functional partners, pulling insights gleaned from data
  • Present work in creative reviews; manage ongoing feedback, update and pivot based on business needs; intake high volume of requests; manage tight deadlines
