Two by Four is in the market for a Great Idea Generator: ACD/Copywriter. One who not only routinely generates unbelievably great ideas, but can show others how to hone that skill as well. Someone who's one helluva writer – and one helluva leader.

We'll measure it on a formal Review Sheet along four categories: Creativity, Leadership, Relationships, and Financial Responsibility. These – and other intangibles – are what we'll use to gauge your performance.
