  28. 28. We’re Hiring! Senior Storytellers Apply Within Let’s go ahead and get this outta the way: no copywriters need apply. Nope. None. Period. We don’t want ‘em. But we DO want an incredibly talented writer. A storyteller. A story-crafter. Someone who can take complex concepts and organize them so they are simple and inspiring. We are a national naming and identity company, after all. So we help companies find and tell their story. The must-haves are, in no particular order: a great idea generator. Someone who loves mining for inspiration. Impressive in a meeting. Someone who can take qualitative insight and distill it down to its simple, inspiring nugget. You’re super-smart. Quick. Personable. People like you and want to follow you to the ends of the earth. You’ve been doing this for 7+ years. You have confidence without crossing that ugly line into the world of prima donnas. Oh, and you need to be able to write like a son-of-a-bitch when it comes to creating compelling stories in just about every industry under the sun. We don’t do clever or cutesy, so stay away from it in your response and you’ll make instant friends. So if that’s you (or someone you know), and you’re ready to move to the paradise that IS Greenville, SC, then do that resume and electronic portfolio thing and send it our way - firestarter@brainsonfire.com.
