FUN.com is looking to hire an onsite, Temporary Copywriter to help us out with getting product descriptions on our websites just in time for Halloween!

Love getting your hands on new toys before your friends? Do you like dressing up like a superhero? Is Hello Kitty one of your best pals? Do you know an insane amount of information 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!” to these questions, then we might have a place for you on our Copywriting team at Fun.com.

Fun.com is an online retailer that sells toys, collectibles, Halloween costumes, t-shirts, hoodies, and other crazy contraptions through our E-Commerce websites: Fun.com and HalloweenCostumes.com. All these products need product descriptions, so you’ve got to have the “right stuff” to do it all.

So, what is the “right stuff” to be a Copywriter for Fun.com? We have TONS of toys, costumes and gadgets who 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 a unique perspective. 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, and even 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 Umbrella in some gorgeous unparalleled copy very soon!
