PETERMAYER is looking for a Senior Copywriter to join our team in New Orleans. If you’re a copywriter with 3-7 years of experience, then you know what a copywriter does. Making a long list of roles and responsibilities seems like a lot of unnecessary writing. And we have other writing to do because we’re down a Senior Copywriter. But we will tell you the sort of person we’re looking for:

  • Someone who loves coming up with ideas—all the time.
  • Someone comfortable working in a partnership (yes, with an art director)
  • A person who prefers brevity but isn’t afraid of the verbose
  • A person who isn’t afraid
  • A social media junkie who loves new media in all of its wicked forms
  • Someone who loves a good cross-functional collaboration but really can’t wait to distill things in solitude
  • An industry sponge—the sort of person who can tell you which agency did that ad for that thing featuring Chrissy Teigen and why it’s important
  • A creative at heart who is passionate about building their portfolio
  • A “camera on” Zoom person

*Will consider remote

One last thing: if you have a partner you love working with, we’re also hiring art directors of a similar level.


We’re New Orleanians but come from all over—San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Portland, Seattle, Atlanta, Austin, Detroit, Minneapolis, and somewhere in Brazil. Our experience spans from Madison Avenue to Silicon Valley to Singapore. We’re experts and neophytes. And we’re constantly looking for other interesting people with diverse skill sets who are willing to share the best ideas in the industry.

Working here comes with all the usual agency benefits like vacation and all the insurances. But our unusual perks are what set us apart.

  • Free Parking
  • Complimentary Jazz Fest Tickets
  • Every Day Is Bring Your Dog to Work Day
  • An Annual Crawfish Boil
  • Continuing Education Opportunities
  • Local Beer on Tap
  • And our offices are closed on Mardi Gras

PETERMAYER is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
