Associate Copywriter at Affirm (Remote)
Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest. Affirm, Inc. proudly includes Affirm, PayBright, and Returnly.
When you think “financial services,” a few things might come to mind: Shocking interest rates. Unexpected annual fees. Fine print as long as your arm. But at Affirm, we’re redefining all that. We’re on a mission to change this industry by offering people a better way to pay for the things they want, need, or just plain love—with no fees, no gotchas, and no regrets. And we need people like you to join us as we bring this mission to life.
We’re looking for a mid-level copywriter, focused on growth marketing, to help us spread the good word of Affirm to our consumers.

- Write compelling, smart copy; push the boundaries of our brand voice; and help uphold and evolve our standards as a key member of the brand copywriting team
- Mentor and learn from the greater writing community at Affirm, including content design and technical writing
What we’re looking for
- A creative, flexible copywriter with 3-4 years of experience at a consumer brand or agency, adept at writing consumer-centric copy
- An understanding of copy needs and goals across digital channels including email, digital media, social, SMS/push, and landing pages
- The ability to take complex ideas and information and make it feel simple
- A strategic mentality and the ability to align your work to the greater goals of the brand and the business
- Experience working with designers to concept and produce on-brand, on-strategy marketing deliverables
