Hyperspace Ventures is looking for an experienced, creative copywriter to execute copy for editorial as well as other business initiatives. Our ideal candidate would have a strong background in copywriting, ideally from a magazine editorial or digital background, and experience in collaborating effectively with art and design teams, understanding how copy and layout work together.
While we are looking for a writer who can execute on assignments, we are also looking to add another creative thinker to our team that will help us create and improve products and programs.

This person must also have backbone, as they will be dealing with various stakeholders on the creative they produce and to stand up for the final product. They also must be highly-organized and adept at tracking copy. Lastly, we are looking for someone who is results oriented, analyzing on a regular basis how the customer is responding to our offerings and making informed changes when indicated.
