Copywriter, Super Chewer

New York, NY

BARK is looking for a versatile, fun-loving, empathetic, and creative copywriter to join the fast-moving team on our Super Chewer brand.

About the team:

The team is responsible for all of Super Chewer’s brand creative including paid and organic social, email, marketing collateral, activations, and more. It’s a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary group working with many partners internally and externally.

About the job:

You will play a pivotal role in the creation of all marketing-related assets for Super Chewer. Your words will shape and help define the voice of the Super Chewer brand.

You'll be working with toy designers, marketers, merchandisers, illustrators and designers, and our social media team. You'll be an important contributor in cross-functional brainstorms about strange questions like "can dogs go skiing?" (For real, we just had this meeting.) You'll be the only copywriter on the team, but you won't be on an island.

You will pet at least one dog a day.

About you:

You know how to write words that work. Words that make busy/distracted people want to stop and pay attention. Words that sell but don’t sound sales’y. You've done it before, you're proud of your work, and have conviction behind it. And also, you can do it fast and meet deadlines. (That last part is very important.)

You take dogs and writing seriously, but you always look for the humor in things and have a knack for making people smile with words.

We’re open minded about your previous career. But here are some things a well-qualified candidate might have:

  • A portfolio of successful commercial writing
  • Experience writing words that make people click/tap/swipe to buy things.
  • Ability to write jokes on-demand. Because there will definitely be demands.
  • An honest appreciation for open feedback, even negative feedback.
  • Strong sense of brand voice, how to create and maintain it.
  • Tendency to make the people in your life laugh. A lot.
  • True love of both dogs and the internet.
