Calling all tech or enterprise writers! Clockwork is looking for a Copywriter with consumer tech, enterprise tech and B2B writing experience to join our content team. We’re offering the right candidate the opportunity to create longer-form content for a variety of our tech clients – although you’ll also need to be comfortable writing shorter pieces for online platforms and social media.
