Job Description

About Foursquare:

Foursquare helps you and your friends make the most of where you are. We're a small but highly ambitious company with millions of users worldwide relying on foursquare to keep up with friends, discover what's nearby, save money and unlock deals.  We’re also helping over a million registered merchants ranging from local businesses to global brands connect with their customers. 

To thrive as a member of team Foursquare, you must embrace our exciting work-hard, play-hard environment. We're not afraid to move fast and break things as we release, launch, iterate, update and announce -- sometimes all in the same day. We're a closely-knit team and, especially at the end of a long day over beers, we feel like we're inventing the future together.

About this role:

The Foursquare brand is built around a strong personality. All the copy, from the badge descriptions to the email newsletters to the web copy, is written in that voice, pushing forward our feeling of playfulness, humanity, and excitement. 

We're looking for a talented marketing copywriter to help us scale that up. Your writing skills should be incredible, your comedic sensibilities strong, and you should have some tech experience (to both write about technology and optimize your copy). This is a pretty huge and meaty role - you will play a big role in succinctly defining what Foursquare does - everything from tweets, blog posts, marketing copy, case studies, badge unlock copy, emails, and a ton of other things. Please submit your resume and a couple sample pieces. If your background looks like a match, we'll send over a quick assignment for you to work on.

Requirements:

  • 2-5 years copywriting experience
  • Impeccable grammar
  • Tech knowledge a big plus
  • Can write for both consumer and business audiences
  • Sustained examples of tweeting and blogging

Hiring is competitive! Please include a cover letter / statement of interest in order to be considered.
