Copywriter/Senior Copywriter

· Minneapolis, Minnesota
Employment Type Full time
Minimum Experience Mid-level

Fast Horse is looking for a copywriter/senior copywriter to join our creative discipline.


Fast Horse is an independent, truly integrated agency built to unlock maximum value for our clients and potential in our people. No working in silos or fighting for a seat at the table. No competing interests or incentives. We’re an agency designed for integrated teams, not individual departments. Ideas come from everyone.  We can give you an opportunity to work on integrated campaigns, and to make really cool stuff, for a roster of world-class brands like Heineken, Dos Equis, Dunkin and Audi.


Our proposition starts with world-class strategists, creatives, producers and amplification specialists locking arms from the initial brief all the way through execution. It ensures organizing ideas are optimized for earned, shared, owned and paid media from the outset. And it ends with campaigns punching above their weight class because every element works harder by working together.


Smart, curious, creative, collaborative, driven and optimistic are just table stakes for working at Fast Horse. We’re looking for a copywriter/senior copywriter who brings personality, a strong voice, and a high level of craft to the concepting and writing process. Ideal candidates will have experience working on earned-first campaigns and understand how and why ideas, content and experiences are shared and talked about. You should know what captures attention across paid, earned, shared, and owned media, and how those things are made and come to life. We’d love to see a portfolio that represents all of the above.


3-9 years of agency is experience is required.


Responsibilities and Requirements:


  • Work with members of Fast Horse’s creative discipline to concept and create integrated campaigns, and help to refine and bring them to life all the way through execution.
  • Work closely with Integrated Team Leads, strategists, producers, and members of Fast Horse’s amplification team.
  • Manage workload for multiple projects simultaneously.
  • Participate in the creating client presentations and new business pitches.
  • Effectively work with vendors and external partners to ensure that we never lose the creative vision for campaigns.
  • Bring a collaborative, egoless approach to your work and help to elevate the work of others.
  • Have a versatile portfolio. Smart to funny. Pithy to long-form. Broadcast to social. Ads to experiences.
  • Have a presentation style as persuasive as the copy, and be comfortable presenting internally and externally.
  • Desire to be an active contributor to a culture and environment that fosters professional and personal growth for all employees.
  • Ability to thrive in an entrepreneurial, fast-moving environment where initiative is expected and rewarded.
