About Us

There is nothing like the feeling of a good night’s sleep. Cozy, wrapped-up-in-a-heavy-blanket sleep. Fire crackling, curtains drawn, DO NOT DISTURB kind of sleep. *Hygge stuff. That’s the kind of sleep we’re talking about. 85% of people agree sleep is a key to their wellbeing, but more than 50% of people are unsatisfied with their own sleep. Whether it’s stress, interruption, work, children, people need help getting great rest!

Hatch is on a mission to help everyone in the family get great sleep. Getting high quality sleep improves focus, energy, and performance no matter what you love to do in your life. We make bedside sleep devices and original content to help people wind down, sleep deeply and rise rested and relaxed. Led by Rest, the #1 baby registry item on Amazon, and Restore, our Award-winning adult focused product, we have helped over 3 million sleepers of all ages find space for rest in their lives.

The Opportunity

Have you been to our website? Did copy lines like “all-in-one-sound machine” and “Take your rest to the next level with dreamscapes, music, guided breathing, and more" make you yawn (and not in a good way)? How about “Hatch owners feel more rested and recharged.” Are you asleep yet? Us too. Our copy is tired! Come help us fix it!

Hatch is looking for an associate creative director with a strong copy background to level-up our marketing team. You’ll be tasked with taking snooze-inducing copy and making it something we want to drool over. And while words are your medium, sleep is your thing. You can write in a whisper, to help someone drift off to a deep dreamy sleep. Or in a booming 808 to get someone to think about buying a thing that sits next to their bed. You can wax poetic about naps, elaborate 5-step wind-down routines, and the beauty of a truly life-changing sunrise. You live for human truths, and find ways to build your best ideas on them. You ideate, collaborate, delegate, and captivate.

Up to this point in our brand history, great copy has been a bit of an afterthought. But we believe in the power of ideas, words, and a witty turn of phrase to drive creative strategy and ultimately brand strategy. You’re coming aboard to make all our copy dreams come true.

Our brand voice is the “mom friend”. It’s not your friend who’s a Mom, it’s the “mom” of the group, the person who can somehow comfort you and call you on your bullshit at the same time. The one who sends a random check-in text, knows your quirks, and will remind you to drink some water after a long night out. You’ll have the opportunity to bring it to life.

Until now, Hatch has been mostly a Direct Response marketer. As we work to cement the existing love for our brand and expand further into the grown-up sleep category, we are increasing our investment in a full scope marketing department. We want Hatch to be an earned media machine, driven by savvy PR, smart, fast social media, and undeniable campaign creativity. It will take a strong and motivated brand copywriter to bring Hatch’s brand voice to life and build a consistent and memorable brand. The senior brand copywriter will work directly with the Creative Director and the rest of the marketing organization leaders. Come join us as we continue to grow in a market worth over $30B in the US alone.
