Calling All Creatives: We’re Hiring Writers (And We Want You!)

Yes, you heard right: Express Writers is hiring writers as we speak.

Whether you adore the written word, are an aspiring scribe, or are knee-deep in the trenches of content creation, we think you should join us.

We’re hiring writers who are superb at sentences and on-point with punctuation, but, more importantly, we want you if you have a passion for writing.

There are plenty of reasons to submit your resume right now.

But first, a little about us!

All About the Express Writers Team (And Why We’re Hiring Writers Like You)

First things first.

Some of the most important things to know about us:

  • Our team is totally remote (we work anywhere and everywhere).
  • We adore good writing and quality content (naturally).
  • We don’t hire just anybody (because quality matters).

The Perks of a Remote Team: Pajamas at Work? Sure!

Let’s be honest: working in your pajamas is pretty awesome.

What’s even better about working remotely with our team, besides wearing your bunny slippers to the “office”?

We respect your schedule.

We’re hiring writers for both full- and part-time work. This means you can come aboard to make some extra change on the side, or settle in for a real, long-term writing gig that pays.

Quality Content Starts with Quality Staff

Here are some of the friendly faces you may get to work with if you join us. Say hi to our management team:

All of the content we produce begins and ends with them.

They get the deets from the clients, and that information is passed to the writer (this could be you!). When you submit your work, it’s reviewed and edited, and then sent back to the client. Plus, everything is facilitated through our totally online, custom Teamroom.

Together, we all work as a unit to produce the best possible end product for our customers. We pride ourselves on quality, and it’s evident in everything we do.

If that doesn’t make you feel warm and fuzzy, we don’t know what will.

The Ups, Downs, and In-Betweens: The Express Writers Story

If you want to work with us, you should know a little of our history.

Express Writers started with our CEO and founder, Julia McCoy.

She was a young copywriter who started getting more work than she could handle on her own. Out of this personal success, the idea for her company was born.

Imagine a team of writers who are passionate about their craft, who offer a one-stop-shop for all your writing and content creation needs.

That was the dream, and, six years later, that dream is still growing. Join our team, and you could be part of it.

Hear the tale, straight from Julia herself, in her entrepreneur story video:

If you want the inside scoop on what it’s like to dive into one of these roles and work for us, here’s what one of our full-time copywriters, Alyssa, has to say about it.

A Day in the Life at Express Writers: Full-Time Copywriter Alyssa

There is one thing I’ll say about working for Express Writers full-time: it’s never boring.

I roll out of bed around 8:00 a.m. each day. Depending on how well I slept, I either stumble or zombie-shuffle to the kitchen to make iced coffee or tea. Caffeine in hand, I grab the rest of my breakfast and head to my computer. Usually, I’m sitting down to work by 9 a.m., ready to roll up my sleeves and write.

(And, yes, I do get the luxury of working in my pajamas, thank-you-very-much.)

When I log-on to the Teamroom, a few assignments will be waiting, including an ongoing project. I hone my focus and bang out whatever is most pressing, then move on to other deadlines.

As the day progresses, I get more assignments from Katria, the team content manager. My work varies – sometimes I’m writing web copy for a fresh company, sometimes I’m penning fun product descriptions, and much of the time I’m writing SEO blogs on a rainbow of topics. I love the variety – it keeps me on my toes.

I continue plugging away steadily until lunchtime. I break for a bite to eat and a quick walk with my dog. When I return to my desk, I turn on some music because I can start to drag a little. My top choices are Dario Marianelli, Debussy, and Chopin (instrumental music gets my brain humming but doesn’t distract me).

Usually, 5:00 p.m. is quitting time, but sometimes I work later to get ahead. I want to produce work that clients will love – every single time.
