Junior Copywriter

| Seattle
Our mission is to protect life.
We’re out to make the world a safer place by solving big problems and taking on the public safety challenges of our time. From our company's inception building the TASER device to a full suite of hardware and software solutions, we are focused on providing police agencies with the state-of-the-art devices and services they need to successfully serve and protect us. In the next few years, we're going to eliminate the burden of paperwork in policing, so officers can increase the time they spend building relationships and serving in their communities. We’ll put video at the heart of the police record so our justice system can get to the truth faster. And we won't stop innovating until the bullet is rendered obsolete.
It’s a big mission, but it’s one we’ll pursue relentlessly every single day. 
Your Impact
Copywriters are master storytellers. As creative architects, they have ability to distill a complex message into language that is simple, engaging and memorable. They pour over strategy, insights and culture to craft the perfect message and overall concept. They understand the power of an idea and are obsessive over the craft of the execution. If these words have inspired you to write words, then we invite you to read on...
