Obscenely Talented Senior Copywriter Wanted.

We’re Mortar, a San Francisco agency dedicated to shaping conversations between people and brands. We like showing up in unexpected places with something surprising to say. Which is where you come in.

Like us, you’re maybe a little hard to define. A brilliant writer for sure, but a conceptual powerhouse as well. You’ve worked on your fair share of print campaigns, broadcast spots, websites, social media promotions, you name it. To you, the medium doesn’t matter—only that what you do is smart, relevant, and more than a little ballsy.

We’re looking for at least 5-7 years of relevant agency experience. You know how to work with an integrated team and you’re comfortable taking a few risks. Naturally, you know how to communicate your vision to clients in a way that gets them excited, too. And you’ll need a sense of humor. Or, at the very least, be able to laugh in the face of intense pressure. And laugh at yourself. And us. Definitely.

If this sounds like a possible match, let’s chat. Start by sending a link to hireme@mortaragency.com. If we like what we see, we’ll get back to you stat. Given our need for speed, we’ll give strong preference to candidates already based in the Bay Area.

    Hello Mortar!

    I put the obscene in “obscenely talented.” No, seriously, I’m not fucking joking. OK, maybe I am. But what isn’t a joke is that I live in Mobile, Ala. (cue helicopter and rope ladder). And needless to say, I’m looking for a new career opportunity, and a new decade (It’s not just 95 degrees down here—it’s 1995.).

    Over my years of agency experience, I’ve worked on every type of media under the hot-as-balls Alabama sun, including digital, print, TV, radio and outdoor. Some of it good, some of it soul-crushingly bad. But altogether, it’s made me hungry and humble. And I’d love a chance to bring that combination to Mortar. Plus, even though I’m not in the Bay Area, I’m in the Mobile Bay area, and that’s gotta count for something, right?

    Thank you,
    Josh Poag
