Journalist / Copywriter

SmartBug Media, a leading digital and content marketing agency, is seeking a full-time copywriter to join its 25-person strong staff of passionate, motivated team members.

We’re looking for a responsible copywriter, preferably with a journalism background and IT or healthcare experience. We want a team player who consistently delivers high-quality work in the form of blog posts, e-books, case studies, and more.

In this role, you will work closely with a small number of account teams, effectively being the brand journalist for each client. This means you will play a key role in conceiving and delivering your clients’ written content, and as a core member of the team.

If you like delivering content that stands above the market, and want to be a core part of a fast-growing agency, this opportunity is for you.

We’re building a different kind of agency—one that lets you do great work without the sweatshop grind many agencies are known for. We believe people can deliver great results, have a great time with people you respect, and still embrace the things that matter in life. And we do it all remotely.


  • Create high-quality, differentiated and compelling copy in the form of blogs, e-books, case studies
  • Write for a handful of clients and become extremely knowledgeable about each industry/business
  • Conduct interviews with clients and subject matter experts
  • Contribute to the editorial calendar for your clients by conceiving engaging titles and story angles
  • Write in Chicago, AP or MLA styles as needed


  • 3-5+ years of copy writing experience
  • Excellent writing and storytelling skills
  • A meticulous approach to grammar, spelling, blog structure, and providing the highest-quality, cleanest, most concise copy possible
  • The ability to research topics and include references and citations
  • An uncompromising approach to hitting deadlines
  • Healthcare or IT background
  • Journalism background a plus

Key Attributes

  • Excellent teamwork skills and the ability to deliver high-quality work, on deadline, with little supervision
  • Not afraid to speak up and contribute to make a project better
  • Values, ethics and integrity
