Copywriter at Peakon
London, GB

DESCRIPTION

Who we are

At some companies you can feel the momentum building. People are engaged, they're approaching their work with energy, enthusiasm and resilience. Being part of the organisation becomes part of your own identity.

At others, it feels impossible to get everyone pulling in the same direction. People lose sight of the company's purpose, they start looking out only for themselves – or elsewhere for new opportunities.

We started Peakon to create a platform that could set organisations on a new course. Where employees know they're listened to, managers learn from their own decisions and become better leaders, and entire organisations see a step-change in what they can achieve.

Trust and transparency guide everything we do here. At Peakon you’ll find an open salary model, unlimited vacation, minimal hierarchy, and maximum freedom to develop and execute your own ideas. Our style of collaboration is based on honesty and friendship, and we always love making new friends...

Who you are

You can lay down prose quicker than Kerouac, have a nose for a story like Joan Didion, and are so at ease with words that you can turn a tennis match into a masterpiece like David Foster Wallace. In short, you’re passionate about great writing and the art of storytelling.
