About us

Copy master (writer/editor/creative genius) (Toronto)

Style and substance. Finesse and flair. We’re looking for a creative genius who’s a master at both. To call you an editor doesn’t do justice to your playful wit and sense of humor. To call you creative doesn’t acknowledge your ability to ensure copy (yours or others’) is letter-perfect and ready for the presses. That’s what makes you the perfect candidate for this role. 

Wave is one of Canada's hottest startups — an award-winning online software creator with nearly half a million customers around the world. And as our team grows, we’re raising the bar on the content we create. 

At Wave you will:

  • be the final gatekeeper who ensures that content of all descriptions (blog posts, marketing collateral, videos, advertising, graphics, web pages and more) is awesome by every description
  • create or guide the creation of much of the content mentioned above — everything from blog posts to advertising campaigns  — and you’ll do it all while maintaining the voice of Wave
  • be instrumental in our customer communications and acquisition efforts
  • manage a team of in-house and freelance content creators 

Your skills and track record include:

  • bulletproof writing, editing and proofreading skills
  • creating fun and demonstrably effective marketing copy for web and print
  • 5-10 years’ experience in either nit-picky editorial or marketing/advertising (or both)
  • a knack for communication in any medium
  • a portfolio of proof of the above
  • leadership, coaching and motivational chops
  • experience co-ordinating with the other people who make up the creative process (designers, web developers, photographers, illustrators, etc.)
  • the ability to understand the technical and present it in a way that makes people care
  • the high energy and great attitude of a collaborative team player

An exceptional candidate will:

  • be up to date with best practices for online communications, social media trends, web usability, web design and industry trends
  • be a strong brand representative (public speaking, PR, events)

What makes working here awesome:

  • great people, great culture
  • casual and fun office environment
  • very competitive compensation, including stock options.
  • benefits
  • vibrant neighbourhood
  • an incredible opportunity to get in on the ground floor of one of Canada’s startup darlings, experiencing lightning-fast growth and international recognition
