Our apparel and footwear brands represent a casual lifestyle for young-minded people who are inspired by a passion for outdoor action sports.

The Company’s products are sold in more than 115 countries in a wide range of distribution.

DC is looking for a highly versatile copywriter to join our in-house creative development team.

The Content and Copywriter will be our key liaison with both external copy contributors (as needed) and with our external PR Agency. Short and long-lead pitches, as well as seasonal Press Releases, from our Agency will require editing and collaboration for voice and strategy. The Content and Copywriter will also work directly with our Director of Digital Marketing to craft headlines and copy for our social media platforms, including Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook.
