Description

If copy is the bridge between our product and the world, excellent copy is like the Brooklyn Bridge or Venice’s Ponte De Rialto.

Good copy communicates what our product does; excellent copy educates widely, inspires new customers, and gives voice to what we consider important.

Good copy might describe Mercury as a bundle of financial services. Excellent copy would say that we’re the service that founders rely on to empower their businesses—a home for founders’ money where they can send currency around the world or issue cards with custom permissions (like higher budgets for managers to send care packages to teammates when they’re sick).

Come help us write excellent copy. As our copywriter, you’ll tell Mercury’s story across platforms and polish the high-quality work we do (take a spin on our demo site and try the product for yourself).

Some things you’ll do:

  • Work with marketing and product teams to write the language that people first encounter when they land on mercury.com.

  • Write a monthly newsletter that shares our product updates and celebrates our customers’ wins.

  • Write blogs that get at the heart of the insights shared at our events, podcasts, and Twitter Spaces chats.

  • Write ad copy that can catch the attention of busy founders and be flexible about tone—funny in certain situations, serious in others.

  • Learn, question, and enhance the Mercury voice. Have strong opinions on language (Can we call new products “fresh,” or does that sound like produce? Can we ever use exclamation points?). Think deeply about how the words we choose reflect our values.

  • Root your decisions in research on how other businesses—competitors, partners, companies in wildly different industries—are talking about themselves.

  • Execute quickly.

The right person can come from a variety of backgrounds, but we think that these qualities would help:

  • You’ve worked as a copywriter at a brand or a startup, and understand the tech ecosystem well enough to detect what type of language should be used where.

  • You know how to work with editors and iterate on feedback.

  • You can collaborate with visual designers to find the most effective way to deliver a message using copy and design.

  • You appreciate the Mercury brand: intuitive, refined, with a touch of the wild.
