Paradowski is looking for a copywriter. You can be senior or junior or whatever. But please have demonstrable experience as a really good writer and storyteller. Don’t be the kind of copywriting candidate with tons of misspellings in his or her resume. Don’t be boring. Also, don’t be a great big giant asshat. I guess we’re looking for someone who can walk that fine line between being a person you want to punch because they have better ideas than yours, and being a person you want to punch because they just think they have better ideas that yours. It’s tricky.

Maybe you like your current copywriting gig but wish you had more digital opportunities. Or you wish people listened a little more carefully to your ideas. Or you wish you were closer to the exciting nightlife one only finds in downtown Webster Groves. We offer those things, plus other professional inducements, such as a tire swing.

We don’t want to brag about ourselves, but we’d encourage you to ask around about us. We think you’ll find we’re building something specific and kind of special here, and it might just be for you.

How to apply:

If you want become our new copywriter, here are a few simple steps you should take:

1. Please check out our website. It’s pretty comprehensive in terms of our philosophy and clients and work, etc. Plus, it’s right up there on the intergoogle for free perusal, so it would be crazy to repeat any of it here.

2. Write a cover letter and include it with your resume. Seems pretty retrograde until you remind yourself that you are a writer, applying for a writing position in which you’ll do a lot of writing. So the cover letter is kind of a test of your ability to sell something (yourself) with your most formidable weapon (words). Should be right up your alley.

3. Send us a link to your portfolio, or send us samples of your very best work. Please don’t, for example, send us something your agency did for a Very Big and Impressive Brand, which you personally do not like and maybe even detest but think we’ll be impressed by. That’s silly. Just show us stuff you love.

Please send it all to, and include the word Copywriter in the subject line.
