Food52 Copywriter, Video in New York, New York

We're Food52, a groundbreaking and award-winning kitchen and home brand. We support, connect, and celebrate our community of cooks and home enthusiasts, giving them everything they need to eat thoughtfully and live joyfully.

We’re currently seeking a full-time Copywriter, Video to join our growing copy team in our New York City office. This is a fast-paced, dynamic role who will primarily write and edit copy for our growing video channels. Think: writing titles for a variety of long- and short-form content, introducing our talent with informative (and fun!) descriptive copy, providing important details about our products in Shop videos, and providing additional context and voice in copy bubbles in our ongoing Food52 series and special projects (plus promo copy for many of these). This role will also take on other copywriting tasks as assigned. This position will report to the Copy Director and work closely with our Video Programming Director and Executive Producer.

We’re looking for someone who can bring their personality and a sense of humor to their copywriting (while still being precise on a tight word count). Our voice is fun and specific, yes, but if you can merge into our lane while still driving your own car, that would be basically the best.

So don’t be shy: Maybe your Instagram captions are hilarious, or you have your own shopping blog. Did you recently text your friends about a chocolate-chip cookie so good, you fell off a chair? This is the kind of friendly, relatable writing we’re looking for. (Huge bonus if you love making and/or eating food, and if you’re already into our brand.)

This position will be a great fit for someone with 2-4 years of copywriting experience. We love people who are eager to learn and grow with us—if you have a big imagination, the flexibility to take edits in stride, and can hit deadlines while still nailing the details, you’ll do great here.


  • Write snappy, compelling video copy in the Food52 brand voice daily to tell the world about our Shop products, recipes, and features in an inventive, inviting, and conversational way.

  • Write series titles and descriptions, plus help with the promotional copy for videos/playlists that we do for YouTube and OTT.

  • Edit video copy for style, typos, voice, and story through a fast-paced review process involving stakeholders across many teams.

  • Keep an eye on the internet and the seasons at all times to spot trends worth incorporating into our various promotions.

  • Participate in brainstorm sessions to help us continue to innovate and grow our brand voice.

  • Provide other support for the copy team as needed.


  • 2-4 years digital copywriting experience, ideally in home design and/or food—agency or in-house experience is welcome.

  • Demonstrated ability to write quickly, gracefully, and accurately—and adapt to an established brand voice.

  • A keen eye for editing, solid knowledge of the rules of grammar, and an eagle-eyed attention to detail.

  • Ability to prioritize multiple high-priority tasks, manage your day-to-day schedule, and hit deadlines consistently.

  • A cheerful, solution-oriented attitude under pressure.

  • Excellent communication skills.

To apply, please send us your resume, cover letter, and a link to your portfolio. In addition to detailing your experience, please tell us about your interests and why you want to join the Food52 team.
