E-commerce Copywriter

Job description

Why Recharge.com

We are the leading one-stop shop for branded payments, making online recharge possible for anyone, anywhere at any time — whether you or someone you love needs credit for calling, gaming, entertainment, or money. This is your chance to join an ambitious scaleup in a state of rapid growth; we’ll push you to develop yourself and help you create a real impact in your role. Put simply: we could write history together.

We won’t bore you with a corporate spiel about how we might be taking on the world of branded payments (spoiler: we are). Instead, we’ll let the numbers speak for themselves: $70 million in funding (and counting!), 40%+ growth in 2021, projected $560 million in sales in 2022, 3.0+ million active customers, a presence in 180 countries and 25 markets, a team of 140+ employees and 35+ nationalities, and 1 person missing — you.

We’re on the hunt for the hungriest and most passionate talent out there. If at any point your brain screams “I want in!” while you’re reading this, then consider this the sign you’ve been looking for: we want you too.

This professional has a real strength of knowledge in working within a digital environment and aims to improve the Recharge.com ecosystem within our Creative Studio team, led by Bruno Cisco, our Creative Lead.
