Job Description

The Amazon D1 Creative Team is looking for a wildly talented copywriter whose passion for words and ideas is matched by flawless presentation and execution. This candidate will work directly with the Creative Director, engaging with our Business Partners in finding the best creative route for engagement through all mass advertising mediums. If you are passionate about creative innovation, customer-focused media experiences and collaborating with a global team of talented designers and marketing managers, we are looking for you.

The ideal candidate works fast, is able to quickly discern the needs of a project and can tackle concept write-ups, turning them into robust ideas on the fly. You love the art of storytelling and how to craft the perfect story for the job in respects to scope, length and budget.
