Copywriter (Part-Time Remote)

  • 21 Roszel Rd, Princeton, NJ 08540, USA
  • Contract

Company Description

Headquartered in the beautiful and vaguely academic town of Princeton NJ, Ripen is an agency with a passion for eCommerce. Our four departments (creative, marketing, development, technology) work closely on all projects, fueled by a passion for shared data, donuts, and sushi. Ripen has achieved incredible growth over our 15+ year lifespan. We’re looking to boost our momentum even further with top professional talent. Hopefully, that’s you.

Our office-working environment is rooted in a positive, collaborative spirit. This isn’t the kind of place where people pull rank… unless it’s to volunteer for buying lunch. You’ll find friendly banter is a daily mainstay, as are reasonable working hours. As such, employee satisfaction is high, efficiency is rising, and coffee flows in great abundance.
