What is Spreetail
Spreetail is an ecommerce company that currently operates VMInnovations, a multi-marketplace retailer that sells thousands of awesome products through major marketplaces like Amazon, eBay, and Walmart. Spreetail is currently in the middle of building something big, new, and exciting due to launch in 2019 with a simple mission: to make customers’ lives better through exceptionally fast service, great products, and community impact.
Originally from Lincoln, Nebraska, Spreetail has recently expanded into two new offices based in Omaha, NE and Austin, TX with rapidly growing teams. We currently have hundreds of employees across the company, and are searching for crazy smart, talented, visionary people.
Who is a Spreetailer
Spreetailers are collaborative go-getters who say bring it on when faced with a challenge. We build technology, run warehouses, market products, recruit top-notch talent, and create original community-focused programs that make a real-world impact. No day is the same and we thrive in a dynamic, innovative environment. We aren't part of your typical company and we're proud of that.
Our culture is based on opportunity, openness, relationship building, and hard work. We believe this is what makes everyone happy and fulfilled with their positions in the long run. 

As a Copywriter, you will:

  • Develop and execute customer-centric copy which drives visitors to Spreetail’s site and its marketplaces to action
  • Engage, convert, and create brand advocates with the written word. Formats include but are not limited to product descriptions, features, buying guides, enhanced brand content modules, etc.
  • Manage an efficient (and effective) product content workflow by building listings and enhanced brand content modules in a timely manner according to your team’s priorities
  • Build the expertise needed within your role and team to solve customer problems within your assigned category groups by constant and consistent collaboration with customer experience, site merchandising, and vendor management teams across Spreetail
  • Frequently engage with site merchandising, vendor management, and marketing teams to understand what’s “working” and what we should test next by pitching product content strategies, copy and optimization tactics to your manager and other leadership
  • Understand channel-specific product content needs, requirements, and restrictions via collaboration with content compliance team members – you should intimately understand how products are categorized, how channel facets are managed, and which content types will have the most impact on product performance on each channel

We look forward to learning more about your experience with:

  • Copywriting, journalism, editorial, or marketing
  • Creating a writing portfolio which showcases your abilities needed for the role
  • Spreetail is growing rapidly; our team is challenged every single day to outwork and outthink the competition. We move fast, and no one has the luxury to wait around for someone else to make the first move. We dive in, we learn, we adapt, sometimes we fail, but we never remain stagnant. 

  • Stock appreciation rights 
  • Leadership development opportunities 
  • Unlimited over-time pay
  • Group health insurance (Spreetail pays your FULL monthly premium.)
  • Yearly company trip 
  • Regular company-funded events and activities 
  • Dollar-for-dollar donation match 
  • Home purchase bonus after 2 years of employment 
  • Island getaway after 3 years of employment 
  • 10-day sabbatical after 5 years of employment

An Insider's view of Spreetail

What are some social events your company does?

One of my favorite (unofficial) social events is something we call 6:00 Club. Every Thursday at 6 p.m., if people are still at the office we all go into the bar room to play games and just get to know each other. It’s a great way to de-stress and hang out with people that you might not work with on a day-to-day basis!

Angie

People & Culture

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

That it is literally all we do! Every action you take in the company will ultimately have an influence in each department in some sort of way. Therefore, collaboration and communication is key. Having the open, welcoming environment encourages that.

Business Development

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started my career journey as a Customer Experience Specialist. A few months into my role, I took part in an internal internship program with the Marketing team. Digital marketing is where I found my sweet spot. It’s vast, always changing, and can be hyper-detailed and broad at the same time, and I love it.
