As a pharmaceutical copywriter, you will work closely with a cross disciplinary team, including creative directors, strategists, visual and UX designers, and software developers, to help create amazing customer experiences.  You and your trusty copy editor will embark upon fabulous adventures, like Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, or Thelma and Louise.

  • Thorough understanding of how to manage references, citations, and review editorial markup

  • Extraordinary command of the English language and ability to type pharmacovigilance without the use of spell check

You are:

  • Comfortable representing the team in promotional review committee/ medical legal reviews
  • Ready to become an expert on your brands and the therapeutic areas they serve, as well as the brands’ opportunities, competition, and challenges

  • Comfortable presenting ideas and capabilities in a pitch setting
  • Committed to delivering excellent work on time and on budget, while consistently exceeding our clients’ expectations


Important Safety Information:

meltmedia is not for all people.  It is a “high personal responsibility environment”1 where you will be supported but not micromanaged.

The most common side effects of meltmedia are a sense of euphoria and satisfaction2, and possible weight gain (due to snacks in the kitchen)*.

Luckily, there are lots of fitness opportunities here in Arizona, including our regular fitbit competitions.

Work may sometimes be interrupted by barking dogs, or dogs begging for treats, or dogs that need petting.

You may already have noticed, meltmedia is a more relaxed work environment than most agencies.  Please view the following video for details:

* Snacks provided free of charge by meltmedia.

Apple watches are also allowed, but fitbits are on the house.

Dogs that bark too much are asked to go home.
