Description

At Meteorite, we build coalitions and campaigns that drive social transformation. We align businesses, civil society and philanthropy around shared values and common purpose, and inspire unlikely partnerships that benefit people and improve communities. 

Meteorite conceived, and now operates, two signature initiatives:  

  • Health Action Alliance, a unique partnership of leading business, communications and public health organizations to strengthen the business community’s response to COVID-19, accelerate vaccine acceptance, advance health equity and rebuild public health.
  • Civic Alliance, a nonpartisan coalition of more than 1,000 companies that strengthens our democracy by inspiring every American to participate in shaping our country's future. 

 

Our clients love us because of our commitment to quality, excellence, and professionalism at every level, from our punctual and polished appearance on Zoom, to our relevant and valuable content. 

Our team brings deep and diverse experience from business, philanthropy and government, and we approach each problem with fresh eyes, continuously moving forward, innovating, and improving. What unites us is our purpose, a belief in the power of coalitions to inspire positive change.

Join us and let’s make impact, together. 

YOUR MISSION

We seek a Copywriter to join a small team of passionate changemakers in social-impact communications. A significant part of our work is producing high-quality, error-free written content for websites, newsletters, and events. We are seeking a Copywriter who can ensure that every word we put out in the world is precise, engaging, and grammatically correct. Candidates must be able to demonstrate experience communicating complex topics (i.e; science, medicine, law, policy) into digestible content for a business and/or general audience. The ideal candidate will be a generalist but a quick-study, adept at absorbing dense material and translating it into easily digestible and actionable copy. In a typical week, you will draft resources currently accessed by thousands of companies, newsletters and social media posts to keep them engaged, and op-eds to build our movement.

You will be integrated seamlessly into our team, collaborating with your colleagues in every stage of our work, from client proposal to campaign launch, and writing the content that sustains it. All Meteorite team members are expected to contribute to our strategic planning, offer new ideas, take ownership of assigned projects, and meet tight deadlines. 

You will:

  • Collaborate with the Director of Communications, program managers and other colleagues to adapt technical material for toolkits and other written resources to be used by a general/business audience.
  • Propose and drafts op-eds, newsletter articles and social media posts in the company’s voice and with a clear point of view.
  • Review and keep current our existing library of Health Action Alliance content, based on evolving public health guidance.
  • Analyze data and metrics to assess the efficacy of content, and makes recommendations to improve audience engagement.
  • View your work product through a lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion, challenging yourself, your teammates, and the entire firm to be antiracist.
  • Contribute to the development of an in-house style guide.
  • Contribute to the creation of an internal content calendar.
  • Perform other related duties as assigned.

 

You should have: 

  • Excellent written communication skills.  
  • Extremely high attention to detail.
  • Comfort using the technologies we rely on heavily for team communication and collaboration, including Zoom, Slack, and Google Drive.
  • An ability to organize, prioritize and manage project workflow, and juggle multiple tasks under tight deadline.
  • Experience working for a fast-paced organization.
  • A solution-oriented, customer-service approach.
  • A passion for Meteorite’s mission.

 

We offer:

  • A fully remote workplace, with team members in Los Angeles, Portland, Washington, DC,  and New York City (west coast hours may be required).
  • A positive and supportive team with opportunities for advancement.
  • A salary range of $65,000-$80,000 depending on experience. 
  • Excellent health, vision and dental benefits.
  • A 401(k) plan with a company match up to 4%.
  • Generous paid time off, which we encourage staff to use for self-care.
