In partnership with our product marketing, product management, and content strategy teams, the copywriter will be responsible for crafting one-sheets, emails, whitepapers, social media posts, participant-engagement and adoption materials, event-specific content, sales enablement materials, and webinar communication assets to facilitate product marketing campaign production and measurement. This role reports to the head of workplace marketing and collaborates closely with our design, sales, product and business teams.

• Proofread content developed by marketing, design and business team 
• Assist, when needed, in the development of user interface content for our retirement products 
• Discover new ways to engage with customers to help them throughout their retirement journey 
• Evolve our strategic narrative to promote key differentiators and why we are experts in the retirement space 
• Show enthusiasm for tackling new challenges, learning new skills, and pitching in where you’re needed 
• Keep up with digital trends and think about how we can apply them to our work 
• Build a deep understanding of Morningstar’s value, our capabilities, and how we serve our audiences 

Experience we’d like to see: 
• Minimum of four years of experience in content strategy, writing, or editing in an agency or corporate environment 
• A degree in journalism, English, communications or a related field; a master’s degree or other relevant graduate degree is a plus 
• Confidence in ability to write creative copy for multi-channel marketing campaigns 
• Superb communication skills, both verbal and written 
• Demonstrated ability to work with marketers, content strategists, and subject-matter experts 
• A solid understanding of how to maintain consistent style and voice 
• Excellent organization and attention to detail 
• Experience with investment data or the retirement industry is a plus
