Job Description

Bestow is a digital life insurance company built on full stack technology and AI. In a world in need of greater financial resilience and protection, Bestow democratizes access to smart financial products and powers some of the world's leading consumer platforms. We are reimagining and rebuilding a 400-year-old, $8 trillion industry to create a brighter future for millions of families. And we're just getting started.
The Bestow team is a diverse band of first principles thinkers on a mission to do good. We're fortunate to be backed by industry leading global investors and partners.
We’re looking for a self-starter who wants to make a big impact at the #2 ranked company on Forbes’ “Best Startup Employers List” for 2021.
Specifically, a writer’s writer. A curious storyteller. Both conceptual and tactical. A thinker who sweats the small stuff. A person who finds themselves shouting at the TV news or a bus bench ad, “C’mon, words actually mean things.”
Someone who knows the big idea is the Whole. Darn. Thing. And the medium is just a set of specs. We’re building a brand from the ground up, after all. 
A creative who could labor over a video script for weeks, but can whip one into presentation shape in a day. Same for a tweet. Or an email. Or a.... you get the idea.
Someone willing to roll up their sleeves, no matter the task - and in a start-up, there are plenty of tasks.  
This role reports to the Sr. Copywriter or Creative Director and encompasses all aspects of Bestow marketing from concepting new digital campaigns to innovating on growth marketing initiatives. It’s a role that requires constant collaboration with various stakeholders and departments. Curiosity about the new and unfamiliar is a must. Willingness to build bridges and collaborate is essential. 
This person must exhibit confidence presenting work to senior stakeholders and defending it. Have both humor and humility.
If you’re looking to bring your voice and talent to a mission-driven company in ways that help it to grow and expand its reach, you’re the candidate we’re looking for. 
If you’re thinking of how you’d have written this job description differently, just stop reading and apply already. 
We are looking for this person to be located in Austin, TX, but will be open to Remote for the right candidate.
