Copywriter

Melville, New York

Copy matters. We know that, which is why we’re looking for an experienced Copywriter who can not only write a compelling headline but also tell a great story. If you can do that, and if that story also happens to drive marketing response through the roof, you’re our perfect candidate!

 

But what about us? Wilen New York is not your typical Long Island agency. We’re a full-service direct marketing shop, focusing primarily on mail but also developing creative across all marketing channels. Our clientele consists of national brands, and we create content in all forms—from straight, strategic assignments to more typical direct marketing efforts like print, digital, social and broadcast.

 

Put simply, this is Madison Avenue work minus the Manhattan commute. And because our clients are some of the biggest in their industries, the copy has to be sharp. Conceptual, fresh headlines are paramount, but nothing makes us happier than logical body copy that flows. Assignments often incorporate multiple channels, so being able to write a letter is just as important as being able to pare it down and say it digitally.

 

Our creative team is all about collaboration. We play well with other departments and rely on each other to help meet deadlines and go home on time. “You have two assignments due, and I’m slow today ... how can I help?” That’s how we roll. No drama, no egos, just (as corny as it sounds) a family-like team that gets great work done on time and has some fun and laughs while doing it. If this sounds like a place you’d like to work, then we’d like to meet you!
