Content WriterCreative Services

Do you know an insane amount of nerdy details about Star Wars, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, and every other pop culture property out there (like, way too much knowledge for your own good)? If you answered “Heck yes, I do!” then we might have a place for you on our Copywriting team at Fun.com.


Fun.com is an online retailer that sells toys, Halloween costumes, T-Shirts, Hoodies, and all kinds of other stuff through our group of E-Commerce websites Fun.com and HalloweenCostumes.com. All these products need well-written, customer-friendly product descriptions, so you’ve got to have the “right stuff” to do it well.

 

So, what is the “right stuff” to be a Content Writer for Fun.com? We have TONS of toys, costumes, and gadgets that all need a loving writer to use the written word to bring out the inner character in each and every one! Since we’re looking to have engaging content for our customers, we need a writer who’s up to the challenge of using their creativity to approach all of these items from different angles. We want copy that’s fluid and entertaining to read, authoritative, personality-driven, and perhaps most of all, FUN, so we only want writers who are willing to infuse their own enthusiasm into their writing.

 

Since you’ll be getting paid for your words, you’d better be good at using them! This means a solid knowledge of grammar and the English language, but that’s not the only thing we’re looking for in a writer. We want people who know and love the kind of products they’re writing about, so you should come armed with an intuitive knowledge base of pop culture, nerd culture or sports. You should also be able to work well independently, but still able to get along in group project situations and meet deadlines.

 

We hope to hear what you have to say about a Lightsaber-Shaped Spoon in some gorgeous unparalleled copy very soon!

 

When you do apply, be sure to include your resume and cover letter. In addition please send a writing sample around 500 words long to HR@Fun.com or include it within your cover letter in the application.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities
  • Write (and rewrite) product content for our websites and product pages that is both entertaining and informational
  • Occasionally write content for blog-style content on our webpages
  • Stay up-to-date on the best practices for search engine optimization techniques
  • Regularly meet goals and deadlines
  • Be able to work out of our North Mankato Office
  • Other duties as assigned
Requirements and Skill Sets
  • Moderate Microsoft Office and Excel Proficiency
  • Use of the Internet. But since you’re reading this on the Internet, this point is probably redundant
  • Superlative command of written English. Paint us a word picture with your cover letter. Or submit it in limerick form. On second thought: definitely submit your cover letter in limerick form
  • Attention to detail – Grammar, spelling, proper knowledge of Star Wars characters and weapons, etc. are all important
  • Ability to work independently
  • Charismatic writing ability
  • Really not kidding about that limerick thing
Preferred Skills
  • B.S./B.A. in English, Creative Writing, Marketing, Communications, or other writing-intensive discipline
