More than a job, joining BFG is like becoming a part of a family. We're a tight-knit group that values the collective whole.

After signing on, BFGers often experience a mental "click" followed by a sigh of relief and then some time spent pondering whether or not they were raised by wolves and nearly destined to live life without finding their true "pack". We hear that a lot.

Want to love your job too? Give us a shout or a howl.

Reports to: Creative Director (Copy)  
Market: NYC

Position Summary:
All right, here’s the deal. You’re reading this ‘cause you think there might be more. Maybe some place who ‘gets’ great work, and instead of holding you back, they’re help pushing you forward. A place where big ideas are celebrated, pitched and produced, not shoved back into your box of broken ideas. That’s what BFG is about and we have some cherry clients waiting for you.
That said, here’s what we need from you: passion. You are the type of person who doesn’t settle. The one who not only turns over every rock looking for inspiration, but one who understands that copy needs to be original, insightful, fun and engaging. You don’t write copy, you craft it. You don’t recycle old crap, you pioneer fresh territories in creative, unafraid to take the risk, do something original, and build it on strategy that you helped co-write. And importantly, you can write sharp and short, as well as long and immersive. Think ad freak meets documentarian.
In short, our writer is more than words. (I apologize for the crappy Extreme song playing in your head.) Our writer is a leader, a concept king, and a client-facing conversationalist that knows how to make big things happen.
Apply soon.
