We are always on the lookout

for writers to join our team.

We believe writing is a team sport. Across our offices, we brainstorm, crowdsource, and edit together.

We count ourselves lucky to work with colleagues we admire, on projects we think are important, for clients we believe in. And while our writers stay with us for a good, long time, we are proud that many have gone on to work in Silicon Valley and on Wall Street, on the campaign trail and, yes, even in the real West Wing. 

We lead with kindness, creativity, teamwork, diversity, humility, humor, enthusiasm, and intellectual curiosity. If that sounds interesting to you, introduce yourself to us.

We’re committed to a diverse and inclusive work environment. We strongly encourage members of historically underrepresented groups to reach out, including people of color, women, LGBTQ+ individuals, gender-nonconforming people, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and multilingual individuals.

Open Position: Account Director

Description

Do you have a passion for consumer technology — for thinking and talking and writing about the ways in which it’s changing our lives as consumers, workers, and citizens? Are you an experienced communicator? Are you interested in shaping the strategy and storytelling around groundbreaking, cutting-edge tech?

If so, we can’t wait to hear from you.

West Wing Communications, a new division of West Wing Writers, is searching for a full-time Account Director to help lead our consumer-technology messaging and writing team. As an Account Director, you’ll be focused on client service and high-level storytelling. You’ll work hand-in-hand with our client, ensuring that a range of audiences (press, consumers, customers) have a strong understanding of the client’s products and services. You’ll also work closely with other members of our team to ensure that their writing is telling the client’s story effectively.

Specifically, you will:

  • Craft strategy, messaging, and written materials —about topics ranging from brand leadership to products and services;
  • Serve as a thought-partner, advising/writing in a variety of formats;
  • Write thoroughly, quickly, and carefully, while capturing the client’s unique voice, tone, and manner;
  • Learn fast and think on your feet;
  • Edit and review the work of others, including your colleagues at West Wing Writers and our agency partners.

About West Wing

At West Wing, we believe that story is strategy. That every person and organization has a unique story to tell — one that can inform, influence, and inspire. And that every leader can be a thought leader, whose ideas change the conversation — in support of products and purpose, alike.

Today, we offer a continuum of strategic and creative services that help executives, organizations, and brands— at the highest levels of business — to develop, express, and amplify their ideas.

Founded in 2001, the firm’s mission is to help good ideas get heard, good organizations lead meaningful change, and good people make a difference in the world—and it serves its clients through a number of entities, including Disruption Books (a hybrid-publishing imprint), Amplifind (which provides executive-positioning and placement support), and now West Wing Communications (which specializes in brand and product messaging and content creation).

We are committed to a diverse workplace. Women, people of color, and LGBTQ people are strongly encouraged to apply.
