What makes someone successful on your team?

A big part of being a copywriter is taking criticism and feedback, which often you won’t agree with. A client might not like something and may not be able to explain why, but a good copywriter can always take that copy, rework it, and produce something better.

We empower our employees to be experts in their fields and be the owners of best practices, while leaving plenty of room for collaboration and brainstorming.
