The Competitive Cyclist Copywriter is responsible for creating product descriptions and detailing technical features for products from across the cycling industry.

• Write product descriptions for e-commerce retail sites
• Ensure each description focuses on the product's unique benefits and contains the technical and use information a customer needs to make an informed purchasing decision
• Ensure technical specifications for products are accurate and complete, SEO presence is maximized, and writing is compliant with in-house style guides
• Synthesize information from catalogs, vendor websites and representatives, third party resources, and firsthand experience
• Adopt a voice that is relevant to the product, the target consumer, and internal brand directives
• Contribute to the team’s professional development by participating in department meetings, directing coaching sessions, pitching ideas, and driving efficiencies
• Meet a consistent level of production across a variety of product types

About You:

• Ability to write excellent, engaging copy is a must
• Experience writing for e-commerce or related industries
• College degree in English, creative writing, communications, journalism, or similar field
• Deep knowledge of the products that we carry and culture surrounding these target markets
• Demonstrated ability to use tone/voice/story to write product descriptions that are relevant, unique, and engaging

• Ability to thrive in an ever-changing environment at the forefront of specialty retail
• Proficiency in Microsoft Word and Outlook
