Copywriter

| Greater NYC Area

We’re looking for a Copywriter to join the Vimeo Creative team. This person should not only be a master of words, but also a big idea thinker and executer. Someone who will both sweat the smallest detail of a headline and help define the brand-voice of the entire company. All before lunch.

Copywriters, and all the creatives at Vimeo, wear a few hats. But, specifically, they are expected to be the storytellers of Vimeo. That means they should be skilled in concepting, presenting, writing and overseeing the creation of anything that goes out into the world with our name on it.

This person will collaborate with internal and external team members for all things “creative” — brand platforms, integrated campaigns, one-off films, brand activations, content, social media, events, innovation projects, naming, even the occasional new product development.

They should also speak Internet — able to express an idea in 140 characters (or, I guess, 280 characters now) or creative a piece of content that catches your attention in the first frame.

And, naturally, they should understand brand strategy, and how it plays out in every place that people come in contact with Vimeo.

In particular, applicants should have a background in copywriting and at least 3 years experience working for creative agencies or in-house creative teams. Ideally both.

 

In this role, you will:

  • Work closely with the design and copy teams at Vimeo to concept and create branded communications: campaigns, ads, videos, social posts, marketing, blog posts, events, emails, activations, etc.
  • Work closely with the creative and product teams to make our product h-o-t. That will include reworking our current site to make it even better, and helping to position, name, brand and launch new products and features.
  • Work closely with the creative team and Creator Labs to help push innovation and define the future of storytelling at Vimeo.
  • Continue to define and strengthen the beloved Vimeo brand, and enable the world’s creators to tell even more amazing stories.
  • Be comfortable providing creative oversight during video shoots, post-production, events production, and anything-else production.
  • Be responsible and autonomous. Vimeo Creative is a very self-starting and self-regulating crew. And it’s largely on you to stay on track, deliver on-schedule and do your thing.
  • Collaborate daily with teams across Vimeo, including Marketing, Product, Engineering, Community, Biz Dev, Creator Labs and beyond.

If you’re applying, you should:

  • Have 3+ years of experience as a member of a creative team within creative agencies or in-house creative teams. Ideally both.
  • Have a bachelor’s degree, and a background in copywriting and creative
  • Have a digital portfolio containing relevant creative and copywriting examples
  • Be a word nerd.
  • Have a design eye, even if you don’t have a design hand. Meaning, you have a design sensibility and be able to tell a visual story, even if you aren’t a Photoshop whiz.
  • Be a stickler for brand guidelines (and, just as importantly, know when to ignore then entirely)
  • Light coding skills are a plus

To apply, please send us:

  • A brief, non-generic cover letter
  • A link to your portfolio
  • A great resume

Tenniel

HR Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

We just moved our main serving stack to a cloud environment, so now we get to modernize our infrastructure to take advantage of that: we get to take everything apart and put it back together in a more automated, reliable, and sustainable way.

Mike

Lead Site Reliability Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

We believe the best ideas come from anywhere. Our biggest product launches have come from Vimeo Jams (hackathons), Creator Lab experiments, contributing to open source protocols, engaging our community, and crowdsourcing across the company. Innovation isn’t a buzz word to us – it's how we push the boundaries of storytelling and empower creators.

Anjali

CEO

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

At Vimeo, collaboration takes many shapes and forms. It could be a simple direct message, it could be pulling up a chair and code-pairing, or it could be a team meeting. The key is being able to easily and efficiently collaborate from department to department. Vimeo provides all the tools necessary to make that happen.
