Safety Not Guaranteed

Hello, Designers and Writers! We're hiring.

We’ve got some interesting (fun, meaty, exciting) stuff happening at Edgar Allan, and we need some help from a couple smart creatives – one writer and one designer. Want to join the team?

We are: A digital agency located at the Goat Farm Arts Center in West Midtown, Atlanta. We’re hard workers with a “just-make-the thing-already” mentality and a bit of a DIY attitude.

We help companies figure out who they are and want to be, communicate better with their customers, look great and be understood online on all sizes and shapes of screens, and promote the things they do via digital channels. (So: brand strategy, content strategy and creation, responsive web design, and go-to-market strategy).  

You are: All about details, self-directed and confident in your abilities, but eager to learn. 

You might have agency experience (which is great) or you just might have demonstrable hustle and loads of “life” experience (even more interesting). Either sounds wonderful to us. Also, your ego doesn’t precede you, you’re able to handle constructive feedback, and you’re game for a contract-to-hire position that happens mostly in our studio.

Take a look at the positions below and see if you might be the unicorn we’re looking for. If so, tell us about yourself and submit writing/design samples to hello@edgarallan.com with the subject line “Help Wanted.”

Writer: Junior To Mid-level

Keywords: Narrative, Creative, Compelling

You’ll work with and support our writing team in creating brand-aligned content across multiple mediums including website copy, articles, and various and sundry other marketing deliverables, in addition to social media strategy and execution. We don’t write a lot of ad copy. We do create a lot of narrative communication. Editorial experience and/or a talent for storytelling and crafting good information flow is a plus.

 Must-haves:

- The ability to adapt your writing style and tone to that of clients’ brand voices

- An understanding of writing for the web, social, and other digital constructs like online articles

- 2-3+ years of paid writing experience of some variety

- Availability for on-site work, as contract-to-hire

 Nice-to haves:

- Experience with social or inbound marketing strategy, editorial calendaring and/or writing for social media

- Experience writing for complicated or technical industries (like healthcare, architecture, industrial design)

Designer: Junior To Mid-level 

Keywords: Narrative, Teachable, Tasteful

You’ll collaborate with and assist our design team on various client projects from conception to creation and production, including mood-boards, designing logos and identity systems, and creating final print and web outputs. We do visual identity creation and responsive web design; experience with and the ability to work in both worlds is a plus.

Must-haves:

- Strong layout and design principles including typography, composition and color

- Proficiency with the Adobe Creative Suite

- 2-3+ years of design experience

- Availability for on-site work, as contract-to-hire

Nice-to-haves:

- HTML, CSS, JavaScript or PHP knowledge a plus

Again, if you think there might be a fit, tell us about yourself and submit writing/design samples to hello@edgarallan.com with the subject line “Help Wanted.
