CovalentCreative is an independently owned, eyecare professional-only, digital marketing agency that provides content, creative, and technology services for forward-thinking healthcare organizations. Eyes On Eyecare is our digital publication and doctor-facing brand, and the leading resource for student and new graduate optometrists and ophthalmologists. Eyes On Eyecare is committed to delivering quality content, virtual events, and digital education for today’s eyecare professionals.

We’re looking for a well-rounded Copywriter who can translate value propositions into captivating copy that inspires action across digital channels. If you thrive in a small team environment and have a superior track record of driving professional audiences to action, then we’d love to meet you!

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for an analytical, quick-thinking Copywriter to craft compelling messages that motivate busy eyecare physicians to action. As our first full-time Copywriter, you will have the opportunity to shape the voice of the Eyes On Eyecare brand across digital channels. You will work most closely with our in-house Eyes On team, but may also handle ad hoc messaging or copywriting projects for our agency clients, including some of the world’s largest medical device and pharmaceutical companies. You will actively contribute to the development of new ideas and will create polished, final deliverables whether flying solo or collaborating with other creatives.

What will you be doing?

Digital Marketing Copy

  • Craft straightforward, direct copy for an optometrist and/or ophthalmologist audience across multiple digital mediums. Our audience responds to straightforward, no frills language so you must be an expert at crafting copy that can be quickly consumed by a busy doctor, yet still packs a punch and delivers a strong message.
  • Write high-performing B2B marketing emails and digital ads, translating complex clinical content into clear value propositions.
  • Write landing page copy for Eyes On events, sales/squeeze pages, and more.
  • Support content, event, and sales enablement campaigns with creative ideas and timely, on-message execution. Collaborate with marketing, social, and ad specialists, as well as designers, to brainstorm effective promotions and to ensure visual concepts and copy tell a cohesive story.
  • Infuse data-driven insights into your copy. Meet regularly with the marketing team to track performance metrics and propose new testing ideas, particularly for email and ad copy.
  • Ensure that all copy is flawless by self-editing for grammar, spelling, and tone — often under tight deadlines. At times this may include proofing and editing the work of others.
  • Live and breathe eyecare — you’ll need to quickly develop a high level of comfort speaking to optometrists, ophthalmologists, and industry professionals in language that speaks to their unique pain points and matches the direct, straightforward tone they respond to.

Brand & Message Development

  • Craft messaging planks for Eyes On events, as well as for the Eyes On brand as a whole. Occasionally, you may also create messaging planks, taglines, and other more conceptual deliverables for clients.
  • Enforce and explain brand voice, tone, and digital copywriting best practices to internal stakeholders and the occasional freelancer.

General Marketing Copy

  • Craft press releases for Eyes On events, company news, and more.
  • Develop copy for select direct mail campaigns.
  • Support agency team on an ad-hoc basis with agency projects like brochure copy, web copy, etc.

What are the required qualifications?

  • 5+ years professional copywriting experience
  • 3+ years experience writing for B2B audiences
  • 3+ years experience writing digital copy, especially email, paid advertising, and web copy
  • A desire to work in a fast-paced, startup environment where you are juggling multiple projects with multiple stakeholders

Top candidates will also have:

  • A background or experience writing copy for healthcare professionals and/or highly technical audiences
  • Content marketing experience
  • Event marketing experience
