This is a full-time position based in New York, NY, reporting to the Senior Copywriter. You’ll work closely with the Brand, Marketing, and Meal Experience teams on digital, print, physical, advertising, and marketing projects.

At Blue Apron, our mission is to make incredible home cooking accessible—from the novice cook just getting started to the experienced chef.

They’re responsible for communicating to customers (and potential customers) with clarity, persuasiveness, authority, and good humor across a diverse range of communications. They take an ideas-based approach to their work, honing in on compelling things to say about the products and recipes we sell, while coming up with the strategic messaging through which to communicate most effectively.
