Marketing Copywriter Jobs Vacancy at Verifone Ashford Jobs Details:
For over 35 years, we’ve been making history. Now, we’re creating the future.
Techs on the beach
On April 14, 1981, in Honolulu, Hawaii, William “Bill” Melton incorporated his new tech company. The original intention was to provide a recourse for retailers who’d been swindled by people handing out bad checks. Bill's product was a kind of verification device using phone lines—a verification phone.
But then a pivot. The credit card industry was relatively new at the time and processing was still being done with carbon paper. Bill saw a way to reduce costs for companies like Visa and MasterCard, while capitalizing on this new technology. Instead of verifying checks, we would provide local businesses a means to electronically process credit card payments. And thus, the Verifone payment device was born.
Now, Verifone is one of the world’s largest POS terminal vendors and a leading provider of payment and commerce solutions. We operate in more than 150 countries and employ nearly 6,000 people globally. Our steady growth has come organically, through a dedication to innovation and strategic partnerships, as well as from savvy acquisitions.
"We believe great work comes from incredible people. We’ve established a team with dedication to committed support and unmatched expertise. Whether it’s building significant client experiences or paving the way for the future breakthrough in payment technology, Verifone is a place where growing your career means making a global impact. Let’s shape the future of commerce together."
Job Title: Marketing Copywriter
Are you a master at turning a phrase and spinning proverbial straws into linguistic gold? Do you have strong opinions about Oxford commas, double-spacing between sentences (i.e., don’t do it) and other forms of punctuation? Could you sell a Dell to Steve Wozniak with your witty, pithy copy? If your answer to these questions is an emphatic “YES, that’s me!”, we’d love to talk to you.
Verifone is looking for a creative, self-driven and tech-savvy wordsmith who is comfortable writing everything from ad copy to white papers and blog posts to technical data sheets.
