Welcome to Callahan, a community of thinkers and makers that has boldly stood for independence for more than 36 years. Our values of curiosity, courage, trust, generosity, respect, passion, quality and fun serve our clients. They also serve the collaboration of our 50+ employees, by letting their individuality shine. We believe that if there’s a problem worth solving, then it’s worth using creativity to solve. Because a big idea, from any source, in any media, can change everything. And the feeling you get when that happens is why you love what you do as much as we do.

We’re located in a 150-year-old grain warehouse in Lawrence, Kansas. Here, opportunities abound and we’ll help you turn your career into a masterpiece of your own design. And, unlike other agencies, work/life balance isn’t just preached at Callahan, it’s also practiced.

We’re currently looking for a senior writer to join our growing creative team led by our Cannes-winning CCO. Get in touch if you have the basics covered:

  • Strong conceptual skills
  • Writing skills that show you love language more than_______________
  • Range that includes stand-up worthy one-liners and emotional long-form copy
  • Experience in consumer, B2B and everything in between
  • Compelling and strong presentation skills demonstrating strategic problem solving and a strong, creative POV
  • Solid knowledge of the digital landscape
  • Solid knowledge of the social/cultural landscape
  • Ability to lead and mentor other creatives
  • A positive, pro-active team player who works collaboratively
  • A grasp of visual trends. We like writers who are visual as much as we like art directors who are verbal
  • Strong work ethic, ownership, and accountability for project deliverables in a fast-paced environment
  • A bachelor’s degree: English, creative writing, journalism or communication
  • 5-10 years agency experience

A bonus if you also have:

  • A nice line-up of award-winning work
  • Or work that should have won awards (let’s talk about it)
  • Examples of being published—from books to blogs to ballads
  • Personal or passion projects that reveal even more creativity
