Job Description


Position at EF Educational Tours

About EF Education First:

Some companies are in the Business of Technology.
Others are in the Business of Finance...Or Sports...Or Soft Drinks.
At EF, we're in a different kind of business.
One that's a little less tangible, and a lot more important.
Because our business, what we make, makes everything else possible.
We're in the Business of Understanding.
Between people. Between cultures.

For over half a century we've been the leader in international educational programs and methods designed to foster such understanding. Through Language, Cultural Exchange, Academic Studies, and Educational Travel, we create the kinds of immersive experiences that challenge biases, open minds, and pave the way for a more understanding world. And yes, we have technology, we have finance, we even have sports with our own professional cycling team EF Education - EasyPost. But it's what we do with it - Building greater understanding, breaking down barriers, and creating a better world...that makes all the difference.

EF Educational Tours is seeking a passionate, energetic, entrepreneurial Copywriter to join our in-house marketing and creative team based in Boston.

Please note: Applications without online portfolios will not be considered.

About the Copywriter role:

EF Education First was founded over 55 years ago on the idea that the best way to learn is to go out into the world and experience it. So everything we create for EF Tours is designed to enable educators to broaden their students' perspectives through travel.

That manifests in the widest range of projects you'll ever find at one job. And since we keep the majority of our work in-house, we get to do it all-from tour itineraries to event installations, web component libraries to AR experiences, digital campaigns to the EF-iest travel swag our team can dream up.

Who you are:

We're looking for a kickass copywriter who has:
  • The heart and soul of a creative, who thrives on coming up with killer ideas and inspiring copy.
  • 3-5 years of multi-channel copywriting experience on everything from print to email to web to video and beyond.
  • The brain of a strategic thinker and a creative problem-solver.
  • A truly collaborative nature and an interest in the kind of work enabled by close copy-design partnerships.
  • Self-motivation and strong time management skills, plus the ability to juggle multiple projects with overlapping deadlines.
  • A learner's mentality. Most of our writers work on a little bit of everything, but we don't expect anybody to know it all upon arrival. Openness and curiosity go a long way.
  • Impeccable grammar, spelling, and attention to detail-as well as a propensity for hot takes on AP vs. Chicago.
  • A unique perspective to offer. Growing a team full of diverse approaches and viewpoints and experiences only makes our work stronger.
  • An amazing online portfolio of your work. (This one's non-negotiable.)

Who we are:

We're not your typical in-house agency. We're an integrated Marketing & Creative team of about 70 staff: writers, designers, video editors, producers, marketing managers, lead-generators, web and email experts, loyalty specialists, and more. We're a passionate crew that focuses on making great work, and we have lots of fun doing it. Want to know more? Read up on our creative philosophy at

Why you'll love working here:

Work in our beautiful Cambridge, MA office, where you'll enjoy comprehensive professional development, frequent social programming and employee-run DEIB Resource Groups and clubs.

You can expect:
  • Paid international and domestic travel at least once a year (more as you grow with us)
  • Eligibility for our Workplace Flexibility Program: our hybrid work model with up to two days of work-from-home flexibility work per week, after your initial onboarding
  • Robust professional growth opportunities including monthly trainings, workshops, and inspiring talks with global leaders and experts
  • Four weeks paid vacation your first year and ten paid holidays
  • 25% company match on your 401(k) contribution
  • Excellent medical, dental, and vision coverage, along with life and disability insurance
  • Wellness benefits and a yearly fitness reimbursement
  • EF program discounts including travel, language schools, childcare, and more
  • Dependent care, healthcare, and commuter flexible spending accounts (FSAs)
  • Discounts at local venues and businesses

Yes, we're a large global company of 55,000 employees in 115 countries, but we act with the nimbleness and agility of a much smaller organization. Founded and run by the same family since 1965. We're always on the lookout for people with drive, creativity, empathy and what we like to call 'fingerspitzengefuhl' (German for 'keeping ones finger on the pulse'), to help us continue our journey; to transform lives, and yes, make the world a better place. Is that you? Then step into a larger world and apply for the roles that will excite you and challenge you in new ways.
