We’re looking for a copywriter who is keen to help shape a standout brand through world-class writing.

Working closely with all teams at the company, from marketing to product to operations, your capabilities enable you to make people excited about Amber and deliver a remarkable user experience across all interactions. You’ll write everything from in-app copy and push notifications, to web content and lifecycle emails, to brand and performance advertising campaigns, adding helpfulness and delight at every turn.

You’ll be the founding member of our creative team, reporting into our CMO. You’ll collaborate closely with design, product, and operations on cross-functional projects.

Key Responsibilities

  • Write compelling copy across all of Amber’s user touch points and formats. This includes short and long form content across website, email, blog, ads and creatives, in-product, and user forms

  • Collaborate across marketing, product, ops, and legal on their copy requirements
  • Enable and upskill the company’s frontline teams with writing guidelines
  • Advise internally on campaigns, creative, and content, and collaborate with external agencies 
  • Measure and improve the effectiveness of your work with A/B tests and user studies
  • Implement your copy in channels directly where possible, like email, to support launch speed

What we believe a great team looks like

  • We build a brand that customers love. We understand our customers and create a positive connection with them through every interaction. We deliver such surprise and delight that they enjoy telling their friends and family about it.
  • We look beyond growth to customer value. We seek to grow not just via the lowest cost customer but the right customers that will love their Amber experience and greatly benefit from what we have to offer.
  • We are willing to take calculated risks on bold ideas. We seek to do things differently and are willing to try creative ideas if we believe there is significant upside, with a culture where we recognise that not all ideas will succeed.
  • We take a hypothesis driven approach. We listen to our customers and develop hypotheses of actions we can take to improve every aspect of our marketing and run experiments to test if those hypotheses are true.
  • We are data driven. We set up the systems to easily track the performance of each new hypothesis so we can quickly determine whether or not we were right.
  • We seek insight. We seek to disaggregate the data to draw out the insight from an experiment to inform our next hypothesis.
  • We continually learn and improve. We keep track of the experiments we have run and the lessons we have learnt so that we continually improve and never make the same mistake twice.
  • We prioritise the biggest opportunities. We test a variety of channels but quickly cut what isn’t working and double down on what is.
  • We develop a repeatable growth process. We create repeatable channels and scalable programs for growth. We seek to build a growth engine with predictable results and acquisitions costs.
  • We see ourselves as one team and have fun. We work closely with the tech and operations teams to build a delightful product and customer experience. We trust each other. We love coming to work, and interacting with our colleagues and customers. If we spot an opportunity for a joke, or to do something nice for someone, then we take it.
