Associate, Copywriter

Capital One Brand Creative is looking for a Copywriter to develop brand standards and visual systems that bring our brand to life across different audiences, products, channels and types of communication.

Yep, we're a Fortune 100 finance company-credit cards, banking products & services, and best-in-class technology-but we don't write like one. Copy is intentionally simple and transparent so people feel at ease on their financial journey. If you're comfortable writing with this voice and tone, and want to help us Change Banking for Good , we'd love to hear from you.

  • Create brand standards and identity systems that advance the brand while maintaining consistency.
  • Use strategy to inform your creative decisions.
  • Understand the importance of integrated thinking across channels, products and audiences, while staying true to the brand.
  • Learn from consumer insights and let them influence your work.
  • Be willing to push the process and mindsets of others to create great customer experiences and strengthen our brand.
  • Write. No surprise there, right?
  • From print to digital channels, you'll craft messaging for current customers, those we've just met, and ones we want to bring on board. Everything from writing headlines to translating legalese into user-friendly language.
  • Brainstorm big concepts one day and tackle detail-oriented projects the next.
  • Collaborate with a lot of smart people.
  • Work with your team-art directors, creative directors, brand and marketing strategists.
  • Work with your partners-internal marketing and line-of-business.
  • Get stuff done. On time. Every time.
  • Manage multiple deadlines on numerous projects happening at the same time.
  • Deliver error-free work, using best practices with keen attention to detail.
  • Listen to and incorporate feedback.
  • Determine when to use existing solutions or start from scratch, so you can invest your time where it matters.
  • Understand the goals of a project, take direction well, and ask questions when you need clarity.
  • Present your work in a compelling way to create support across different audiences.


  • Your curiosity is endless. There's always something else to learn.
  • You're flexible and not afraid of change-in fact, you welcome the challenge.
  • You share your point of view but seek out what might be missing and listen.
  • You have big ideas and know the best ones are driven by proof, persistence and patience.
  • You're a storyteller. You simplify the complex and compel your audience to act.
  • You know how to enjoy yourself. While fun isn't mandatory, it certainly seems to follow you.
  • You care about the work, your team and the customers you serve.
  • You can show your work with your Portfolio.

Basic Qualifications
  • Up to a year of copywriting experience in a professional setting, internship, or freelance engagement

Preferred Qualifications
  • Bachelor's degree or military experience
  • Experience in one or more of the following marketing areas: B2B, Experiential, Performance, or Direct Response
  • Experience in the financial services industry
