About the role
We're looking for an Atlanta-based writer to join our team as a full-time Copywriter. This individual will be responsible for researching and writing educational content on various topics related to social good.
The ideal candidate will have excellent writing skills and a desire to learn more about online marketing and SEO.
Writing is a fundamental part of this position. If the idea of writing for 40-45 hours a week doesn’t excite you, this role will not be a good fit.
Tips on applying for the writing position:
- Resumes should be submitted in Word or PDF format.
- Applications without a cover letter will not be reviewed. Links to writing samples should be included in the cover letter. We hire Copywriters from a variety of different writing backgrounds so any type of writing is suitable for the writing samples (academic, blog, journalism, creative, etc).
This position is an excellent way for recent college graduates to start their online marketing careers. Nexus Marketing provides team members with additional training opportunities and the potential to grow within the company.
Nexus Marketing is located in the heart of Atlanta on the Beltline between Krog Street Market and Ponce City Market with all of our team members located in the metro area. We have a hybrid work structure with team members working in-office some days and remotely other days.

- Support a culture and environment where high performers feel challenged, are empowered, and want to work.
- Indecision is the only wrong decision. If you've got a reasonable shot at making the right call, take action.
- Demonstrate best-in-class responsiveness with quick, proactive, and thoughtful responses to clients, partners, prospects, and team members.
- Give back to your community and the causes you care about.
- Stay open to new ideas & advocate for them, but commit 100% once a decision is made.
