Mill is all about answering a simple question: how can we prevent waste? Less waste can save time, money, energy, maybe even our planet. And there’s no better place to start than food. Food waste is one of the most solvable climate problems facing us today. Plus, our trash really stinks. It’s gross, heavy, and our least favorite chore. At Mill we are striving to build a better environment for all, as we take on climate and kitchen change.

Role Description

Mill’s Creative Team is looking for a copywriter with fluency across most of the marketing ecosystem. Channels such as web, email, social, and print will be your daily bread — but there will also be opportunities to flex into conceptual work if you’re hoping to write a thumb-stopping video or a catchy campaign hook. Agency experience is preferred. Startup savviness is desired. You’ll need an ear for flexible, captivating, clear-as-day prose — and the ability to explain how it’s built. An understanding of messaging hierarchies and their strategic application across consumer journeys is essential. This job requires the ability to contribute big ideas and to execute small details with equal enthusiasm. Finally, this company wants to help save the planet — so you should too.
