We’ve all found apps we love, and apps that have changed our lives. Apps transform the ways we learn, work, travel, have fun, and pursue our passions. In 2008, the App Store launched with 500 apps. Now there are more than two million. And so our team of writers, editors, and curators challenged ourselves: How can we offer more perspective and insight? How do we showcase the work of innovative developers? How can we make the App Store a place our customers will want to come to every day? We’re hiring people who want to help make that happen. We are looking for a dynamic Marketing Writer to create engaging and original copy around games. Your work will cover App Store promotions, social media, and email. As an integral member of the creative team, you’ll be expected to bring deep experience to our features and campaigns, and collaborate closely with the Marketing, Design, and Business Management teams. An expertise with writing succinct headlines and teasers for a cross-platform retail environment is required. We are looking for a brilliant writer, a self-starter, a problem solver, and a talented communicator with a passion for excellent copy, and an eagerness to collaborate with creative colleagues around the world. You’re a digital and media enthusiast, love keeping up with pop culture, and are excited about how technology shapes our future. Most of all, you’re passionate about the role apps play in people’s lives, and are eager to help create an amazing user experience for millions of people around the world.
