Summit Public Schools - Redwood City, California - Full time

Are you a strong writer with a passion for education? We've got the opportunity for you! 

The Summit Learning Program is looking for a mid-level Copywriter who will work with our External Engagement (EE) team to concept and write communications and content about our program. The Copywriter will report directly to the Creative Director for Summit Learning and will sit on the larger EE team to execute the nonprofit organization’s branding and direct strategies across multiple channels: email, social media, print and digital ads, company website, collateral, in-class signage, and video assets. There is also a large blogging component to this role, so any previous blog/long-form experience is greatly appreciated.

This is the perfect position for an individual who wants to use their honed writing skills to change the future of youth education for the better. We are looking for a self-starter who isn't afraid to take initiative and dive deeply into the role. This position requires a team-oriented, energetic professional who is comfortable working in a fast-paced environment and has a strong willingness and desire to learn.

We’re all really nice folks, so a great attitude is a must too!

  • Concept and write relevant and brand-reflective print and digital ads.
  • Respond to cross-departmental copywriting needs.
  • Develop larger themes and concepts to help ensure all of our work keeps the same voice and tone.
  • Ensure that your work is being delivered on time to the prospective next step.

Light Project Management

  • Some slight project/relationship management of outside vendors is possible.

What You Need:

Key Qualities and Skills

  • Commitment to uphold Summit’s values, belief that all children deserve a rigorous and equitable education that prepares them for college and for life.
  • Bachelor’s Degree is required.
  • 3-5 years relevant copywriting experience is required; experience in education or nonprofit organizations is a HUGE plus.
