Company Overview

MarketPlace is a strategic partner to food and beverage, pet and animal, and health and wellness brands and businesses. Please spend some time on our website and make sure that you have a good sense of who we are and what we do (as much as you can based on a website). As a potential Copywriter at MarketPlace, your ability to synthesize this information and present a thoughtful, clearly communicated application matters. A lot. We take the thought and the writing in your application seriously (but not stiffly), even if the tone of your writing isn’t serious (we love puns, though we don’t require them). We care about the organizational choices informing your resume format, and we care about the flow of your cover letter.

How To Apply

If you’re reading this, the position is open. Please email the aforementioned resume and well-written cover letter (and writing samples [anything you want that shows how you think]) to

Fine Print (dang lawyers)

If you’re reading this, the position is open. We can’t respond to all applicants, but we have a good sense of what/whom we’re looking for, so if we think you’re a good fit based on your application materials, we’ll certainly be in touch within a few days of your applying. If we don’t respond, it’s not necessarily because you’re not a great writer or person; we just need a very particular kind of person for this position, and we think that we’ll know him when we see her.
