Portola Plush Co. – Posted by malouieAnywhere


Job Description

Portola Plush Co. is a small startup that creates innovative plush character toys with veteran artists and designers from Apple, Disney, and Pixar.

We’ve produced factory prototypes, tested them with kids (who really love them), and are gearing up for our launch. That’s where you come in.

We are seeking an experienced Story Writer to help our characters come to life! You would lead our efforts in story and copy. That includes creating character descriptions, world building, writing a mini storybook, creating copy for our toy packages and Kickstarter, and creating copy for our website – all in collaboration with our creative team, including our CEO and our Chief Character Designer.

Our team has come up with some ideas, and would love to work with you to make sure we get to a place where we have something that kids and parents will love. We are looking for someone with experience in writing for the 8-10 year old age range (both boys and girls/ unisex), with a flair for developing emotionally intelligent characters who go on adventures and have an undertone of humor.

Ideally, you have spent time working with the likes of Cartoon Network, Disney, Marvel, Nickelodeon, or Pixar, or have published some popular children’s books on your own.

We are located in Portola Valley, Silicon Valley, CA, but working remotely is fine with us!

In your email to us, please specify:
1/ Your hourly rate
2/ Your estimated availability for the next 3 months (June through August)
3/ Projects you’ve worked on. Please include attachments, links, etc.
4/ Your credentials (resume, or your LinkedIn)

Please send your email to Marissa Louie (CEO):
