The Global Public Affairs and Communications organization at Starbucks Coffee Company is looking for an experienced writer/storyteller with a passion for humanity, sustainability, coffee and those working to make the world a better place.
Do you believe that great storytelling can inspire us and bring us together? Do you have a natural curiosity that makes you want to discover the stories of a coffee farmer in Rwanda, an agronomist working on new strains of coffee trees and NGOs working to combat climate change? Can you find a great story in a Starbucks drive thru or by noticing the regulars in a Military Family Store or the transgender store manager who is the heart of her community? Do you enjoy consensus building and collaborating with other teams to find the best ways to bring stories to life or finding creative ways to make a business story lively? If so, you may be the right fit for the Starbucks Stories team, a group of writers, designers, editors, producers, photographers, videographers and more.
The person we’re looking for is deeply curious about people and the world around them and a heart for working toward positive change. The writer is flexible and willing to do what’s needed, whether it’s deep storytelling, a quick synopsis, crafting a social media post, writing an internal profile or, occasionally, an executive communication. This writer has a portfolio of storytelling that showcases an evocative style that inspires, motivates and moves and can help bring to life the mission and values of Starbucks. And, ideally, some experience in other mediums, such as video and audio storytelling and social media.
This is a unique opportunity to join a forward-thinking, hands-on, results-driven and highly collaborative team and play a pivotal role. Things happen quickly here and the role demands a team player who thrives in a fast-paced environment. If you love to tell stories and lead by example, if you’re inspired by coffee and connection, then we want to talk to you about being a part of Starbucks Stories team.
Starbucks is looking for a storyteller with extensive digital writing and multimedia experience. We need someone who has experience in corporate storytelling but also great foundational chops in interviewing and reporting skills earned at a news outlet. Ideally, the candidate will have experience at a high-visibility consumer brand or public-facing non-profit organization. This writer will have some expertise in sustainability and a track record of compelling, human-centered storytelling. Reporting to the director of storytelling on the Starbucks Stories team based at Starbucks headquarters in Seattle. This position can be remote but must be available during West Coast business hours.
