Working at Bou

When joining Bou, you'll get to work directly with our 100+ brands, ranging from early-stage companies to more established brands, universities, and nonprofits. And we really do mean directly – we don’t have key account managers or pure strategists at Bou. You'll become a part of an all-hands-on-deck team building brands through marketing, communications, design, and web development.

Your daily tasks

In this role at Bou, you would use your writing skills and brand-level understanding to create campaign concepts, polish copy for them, position emerging brands and prepare other well-phrased brand materials like websites and video scripts. You would be working closely with designers to make sure that text and visuals communicate the same idea. And thanks to your past experience, leading a project from brief to launch sounds not only doable but thrilling.

Required skills

  • 4+ years of copywriting experience – your current title might be copywriter, creative, concept designer, brand marketer, or something similar involving a lot of creative writing and at least some agency background
  • Brand-level understanding, hands-on execution – you understand the strategic level of branding but feel most at home when applying those insights into great copy and engaging long content
  • Contextual understanding of your text – you know how to apply brand and campaign ideas to different channels: from video scripts and outdoor ads to websites and socials
  • Ambition to level-up into a versatile brand marketer – you could become a world-class copywriter but that feels a bit too narrow for you
  • Client communications and project management abilities – you keep a cool head under pressure, and can give and take candid feedback well
  • Sincere interest to learn from a wide range of industries – we build brands for a great variety of products and companies, from handcrafted coffee to mobile games and new textile materials
  • Excellent written English, native in internet – Nordic languages are an advantage but not a necessity, and having worked with international brands is considered a plus

Applications by Jan 20, 2023

We acknowledge that finding a person who ticks every box is pretty challenging. That’s why we prefer an “If I don’t know, I’ll figure it out” -attitude over having a perfectly matching CV & portfolio.

When we have an optimal candidate, it's just about finding the right time to join forces. Though, as our hands are full, we hope you could start already in early 2023.

Send your casual free form application (and portfolio if you have one) to by January 20 at latest, but bear in mind that we’ll be going through applications on a rolling basis. If you rather work as a freelancer, submit your profile here.
