Job Description

We make small businesses more successful through better banking.

Our company is looking for a Copywriter to join our growing team as we enter a new phase of expansion 🚀 We are a Toronto-based, venture-backed startup at the heart of the FinTech movement that is shaping the way financial services are delivered.

Our story

Our company’s purpose is to eliminate the pain that small business owners face through their financial management and banking. To achieve this, we’re rebuilding business banking from the ground up. Imagine you could start with a clean slate and think of a different way to deliver banking to small businesses. What would you change? What would you keep? These are the decisions that we make every day.

Our product

NorthOne is a mobile, tech-powered bank account built for startups, freelancers, and small/medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Poor financial literacy has an outsized impact on the costs and failure rates amongst SMBs, and we are on a mission to eliminate these problems. We are more than a banking platform, we are the world-class Finance Department that SMBs could never afford.

Our team

We ❤ marketing and communications. As a Copywriter, you’ll work with our world-class Growth, Design, and Communications teams. You’ll also benefit from our experienced leadership and incredible advisors. Our COO has helped build brands like Frank and Oak and has lectured about marketing at SXSW. Oh, and our CEO? 6 years at McKinsey working on digital customer experience in financial services. We’re building a product that solves real pain, vs the imagined kind. Feeling it?

REQUIREMENTS

Today you might be a Copywriter, Social Media Coordinator, Journalist, Content Strategist, Blogger or the equivalent in your company...or something that we haven’t heard of yet - we keep an open mind.

The most important characteristic for our Copywriter is your attitude. We want you to join because you don't see roadblocks, you see opportunities to be at your best. You know that somehow, you can figure anything out.


 
Job Requirements
The skills required for this role:

Outstanding copywriting skills.You get giddy about crafting the perfect tagline, tweet, blog post, or email
You live and breath social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, Quora) #killingit
You love writing. Blogging, writing long form articles, writing social posts - it's your domain and you're master of it
Some experience writing ad copy. You don’t have to be Don Draper, but you know how to string together a tagline
Bonus points:

You’ve worked at a fast-growing startup
You’ve written articles for a major publication
You've built a social following of 10,000+ followers/subscribers
You’ve worked on ad campaigns for national consumer product brands
Few people have been trained for this sort of role. If you are this close to what we’ve described but aren’t sure, apply. Let’s figure out together if this is where you could shine.

BENEFITS

Our mission is big and audacious, but we're assembling a team to take the challenge head on.

As a Copywriter, you'll be joining a team that prioritizes:

People: Our company is more than just a business. We’re a band of brothers and sisters supporting each other on our mission to rebuild business banking. We’re really serious about mission, fit, and the people we work with. You’ll be part of a rapidly scaling team that reflects these values and keeps this place special.
Diversity: You'll find yourself in an environment that values diversity and inclusivity. Excellence doesn't come in one flavor and neither should we.
Leadership: You’re right in the thick of it, making critical decisions that will clear our path forward.
We offer full health/dental benefits, competitive compensation/equity, and one hell of an adventure.
