Job Description

At Matter Labs, we are building zkSync: a blockchain scaling solution secured purely by cutting-edge cryptography. Our mission is to scale Ethereum to billions of users, fully preserving its most valuable properties — permissionlessness, trustlessness, and resilience, — in order to protect and enhance global economic freedom.

We hold a strong opinion that zero-knowledge proofs (ZKP) are the only technology today that can achieve this goal.

We are also proud to be the pioneer of the ZKP tech on Ethereum, and one of the few companies in the world with strong expertise in this field. Our contributions over the last 3 years include the first ZK rollup ever built, the first implementation of recursive ZK proofs on Ethereum, and the world’s first practical FPGA-based ZKP accelerator. Most recently, we launched a zkEVM testnet, making zkSync the first ZK rollup capable of executing native Ethereum smart contracts.

Across all hires we make at Matter Labs, regardless of role or team, we look for signals that a candidate will thrive in a culture like ours, where we value freedom, ownership mindset, and meritocracy.

The Role

The senior copywriter will be part of a team of editors, writers, strategists, designers, and project coordinators tapped to work with one of the most innovative companies in crypto. You’ll support a wide range of creative projects from ideation to execution.

In this role, you’ll be working closely with various teams, ideating and pitching creative concepts, and executing a wide range of creative projects. A little charisma in the room will be super helpful for this role.

Please note that we don’t do a lot of traditional ad campaigns. You’ll build your book here with super strategic work for a big buzzy brand, but if you’re looking to win a bunch of awards, this miiiight not be the right role for you.

Responsibilities

  • Leading creative ideation processes across Strategy, Editorial, and Design
  • Developing high-quality creative assets across a range of formats
  • Collaborating with colleagues in Design, Marketing, and Strategy
  • Honing your inner anthropologist to become an expert on our audience (developers, retail, and potential future employees)
  • Pitching on-trend (and ahead-of-the-trend!) creative ideas
  • Pitching ideas and campaigns, both internally and externally
  • Responding with a GIF when it says so much more than words
  • Over-sharing pictures of your pet and/or unpopular opinions about the latest show/movie/album

Your Profile

  • 6+ years of experience in advertising or branding
  • Creative and out-of-the-box writer who comes up with better descriptions than “out-of-the-box”
  • Writes sparkly copy, adhering to brand voice and tone standards
  • Top-notch writing and concepting skills, in formats including positioning statements, taglines, brand naming, social media, web copy, employer branding, video scripts, and brand manifestos
  • Experience meeting deadlines while juggling multiple projects
  • Not shy about sharing your opinion with your team and manager (without being a jerk)
  • An enough-to-effectively-explain-this-stuff understanding of the blockchain industry, our target audiences, and how they like to consume content. Technical writing is a plus, but this position will focus more on brand and creative marketing
Working at Matter Labs

You will receive highly competitive compensation and equity options. The roles are fully remote, but you are welcome to sit in one of our offices, or a co-working space of your choice.
