Senior Writer

Cedar Rapids, IA

Job Information:

Stamats seeks a Senior Writer to work primarily with higher ed clients.

Our writers work in all areas of an institution’s externally focused communications, but you would spend most of your time on:

·       Flagship publications (viewbook, travel piece, etc.)

·       Email and other direct pieces

·       Web content

·       Ad copy

Day-to-day, you would work with a team of designers, content strategists, consultants, sales people, and project managers. Each with their own strengths; all working together to help our clients succeed.

Where are your strengths? Do you have a passion for precise word choices? A feel for the flow of a story? A drive to deliver evocative messages with emotional staying power?

More specifically, we’re looking for five or more years’ experience with:

·       Writing marketing copy for universities or colleges

·       Interviewing subjects for stories with a point

·       Creative concepting for brands or campaigns

All three would be phenomenal—how about two of the three?

We are problem-solvers who create beautiful and useful media. We invent and brainstorm and think it through. We keep learning.

You might find these things very handy:

·       An eye for the telling detail

·       A passion for punctuation (Serial comma? Officially, yes, but we love a lively discussion.)

·       A suitcase—we visit our clients and we keep our receipts and our frequent flyer miles
