  • A robust background in UX and writing craft excellence
  • A demonstrable track record of successfully using UX writing to elevate consumer digital products and experiences
  • Aptitude and experience approaching UX writing challenges with a service design mindset so that the impact of your team’s work goes beyond screens
  • Experience growing and managing a team of UX writers of varying levels
  • Good judgment and self-direction
  • Excellent communication, presentation, interpersonal, and analytical skills; the ability to inspire different audiences across the organization
  • Ability to see patterns in the day-to-day work and connect them to our big-picture product strategies and user experience visions

Why you'll love being a part of our team

  • We're pioneering, challenging the status quo, and always striving to try new things without fear of failure
  • We're efficient, letting data drive our decisions and prioritizing our work based on impact
  • We're supportive, always striving to connect, collaborate, and lift each other up
  • We're down-to-earth, leading confidently without arrogance, and maintaining humility in our work, our culture, and our product
  • We are a high-growth company with strong financial performance and plentiful opportunities for career growth
  • We are committed to personal growth and provide every team member an annual budget of $2,000 USD to invest in professional development
