Full time Copywriting Marketing Social Media

Job Description

Hello and welcome to DAYBREAKER! We are a global morning dance community of 500K+ and growing and we wake up and dance 💃🏽 in the most iconic locations around the world (top of the World Trade Center, Sydney Opera House, Smithsonian museum, the White House and so many more). While the city sleeps, we break the day ☀️ with energy and intention with a community of adventure-seekers, mischief makers, and collective joy enthusiasts.

We are a Brooklyn-based family. Three best friends (wife/husband (we met on the dance floor at Daybreaker early on!) and college best friend (and our now 2 year old daughter 👶)) are leading this dance movement with a tiny but mighty team. We are looking for more than just epic skills and experience - we are looking for a mindset and orientation focused on kindness, service, optimism and joy. No need to apply if you have an entitled, complain-y, gossipy attitude pls! We're here to do IMPORTANT work of getting more people to dance, play, have fun, connect, make friends and come home to their self-expression — especially post pandemic.

THE ROLE

The ideal candidate for this role should have strong communication and creative writing skills, with professional experience in communications and marketing. We are looking for someone with a quick wit, a sense of humor, endless curiosity, and relevant experience in copywriting and marketing. Bonus points if A/B split testing gets you pumped and creating “must-open” subject lines are your thing. You are a patient and diligent team player who can work effectively with remote team members. You are hardworking, organized, and not too cool to get your hands dirty.

This is a paid full-time role. You'll report directly to the Daybreaker leadership, working closely with a savvy, tight-knit, creative, and energetic team in Brooklyn, NYC. Remote is an option in this brave new world.
