Head Writer

Overview

Are you an excellent, creative writer with keen political instincts who wants to help elect more Democrats and pass progressive policies nationwide? If so, we want to meet you.

We’re the premier direct mail firm in Democratic and progressive politics. Our clients include senators, governors, members of Congress, mayors, and local officials, as well as labor unions, pro-choice organizations, and environmental groups.

We’re seeking a Senior Writer who will be responsible for most of the copywriting that goes into our direct mail. This entails working with the campaign team and graphic designers to shepherd individual mail pieces and entire mail plans from concept to finished product.
 
The ideal applicant:
 
  • Writes well, quickly, and correctly
  • Is not just a good writer, but truly a creative thinker able to conceptualize artwork that you will pass on to graphic designers to execute
  • Is a stickler for correct grammar and has an eye for proofreading
  • Thinks visually and creatively—can you marry a clever headline to a compelling image?
  • Is passionate about electing Democrats and advancing progressive goals
  • Works well with others and lacks an ego
  • Can juggle multiple simultaneous projects with competing deadlines
  • Has some familiarity with direct mail, political messaging, and both persuasion and GOTV tactics
  • Has 2 or more cycles of campaign experience
 
Because our work is all about Election Day, our workload ramps up significantly in the run up to November. As we get closer to Election Day, the hours get longer and the pace accelerates. This is NOT a 9 to 5 job -- there will be lots of long days and working weekends in the fall of 2022, though this is balanced out by relatively slow periods outside of the “busy season.” Anyone familiar with the campaign lifestyle should know what we mean.

Salary range is $65,000-$85,000 depending on experience, plus a generous election day bonus and a competitive benefits package including insurance (health, dental, life, disability), 401(k) with employer match, and paid vacation.
 
If you want to join a great team and (hopefully) be a part of the next Democratic wave, we'd love to hear from you. Please send your resume, a writing sample, and a brief cover letter in a single PDF to info@missioncontrolinc.net.
