Copywriter and Social Media

Wordsmith Wanted

Ayuda is an international ad tech company headquartered in Montreal, Canada. Our software suite is used by OOH advertising companies around the world. Ayudans are passionate, friendly, family-oriented people who love what they do and are always ready to lend a hand.

We are looking for a copywriter and social media expert to join our growing marketing department for a 3 to 6 month contact with the possibility of becoming a permanent employee.

Your responsibilities:

  • Ooze content: case studies, white papers, press releases, blogs, newsletters, social media posts.
  • Assist with the various publishing tasks associated to the content you will be writing.
  • Write high engagement social media content that reflects our brand voice.
  • Participate in the content planning each quarter – what do we want to write, which personas are we targeting, which verticals, which product features?
  • Research your topic – we want content that does more than skim the surface of the topic.
  • Edit content written by other members of the team – both proofreading and constructive content criticism if needed.

You:

  • You are an erudite and thoughtful wordsmith. You have serious opinions about the Oxford Comma.
  • You take your work seriously, but you don’t take yourself seriously. You have an opinion and can back it up, but you don’t sh*t yourself when proven wrong.
  • You can write in a brand voice that is different than your personal style. You know that a social media post, an article, a thought leadership piece, and a technical paper all need their own tone, even when representing the same brand.
  • Technology, advertising, and software are interesting topics to you. You can write about technical subjects without getting dry. You can write about our products without ever mentioning our products.
  • You’ve executed projects from start to finish and measured the successes and failures.
  • Your attention to detail is legen-wait-for-it-dary.

Our Perks:

Day One:

o    Dialogue Tele-Medicine: application that allows you to chat and virtually consult with a team of healthcare professionals made up of nurses, doctors, pediatricians, nutritionists, dermatologists, and mental health professionals.

o    Sick Days as Needed: we believe in our employees taking care of their health and wellness like responsible adults.

o    Monthly public transportation: paid in full

o    $200 budget to buy yourself Noise-Cancelling Headphones of your choice.

After Three Months:

o    Access to Group Insurance after 3 months: health, dental, prescription drug, disability insurance, and life insurance, 70% paid by employer.

o    Three weeks of vacation per year.

o    $200 per year towards a fitness related expense, ex: gym membership or yoga classes.

General Perks:

o    Snacks, beverages, and beer keg in the communal kitchen.

o    Fresh St Viateur Bagels daily, plus pastries on Fridays.

o    Quarterly Teambuilding Events: Ziplining, BBQs, and video game tournaments have been recent favourites

o    Monthly “Breakfast with Luc”, our CEO

o    Monthly Birthdays Celebration

o    Monthly in-office massages

o    Yoga at Lunch on Mondays in the warm months

o    Bring your Dog to Work Fridays

Please include:

  •  Work samples: an article, a tweet, and your favourite piece of your work
  •  Your favourite grammar meme/joke.
