We’re looking for a UX writer to join our UX & Design team in our Atlanta office.
What you’ll do
Improve products through clear, compelling, and user-centered content: Collaborate with product designers to develop user stories and flows, create information architectures, and pair the right visual components with the right copy.
Advocate for the user: Partner with UX research, product managers, and product designers to gather user insights to inform the design process and ensure that the user’s needs, opinions, behaviors, and motivations are represented in content strategies and other project documentation.
Shape our design system: Help raise the bar for clarity and consistency in all product content, by further developing our content design guidelines as part of our wider foundational design system.
Strengthen our brand: Work closely with our marketing team to make sure the brand’s voice and tone is consistent throughout product and marketing content. Balance representing the brand with representing the user in your copy.
Communicate and collaborate: Present your work with a focus on storytelling, articulating insights from UX research and framing your decisions with data-backed rationales. Engage in regular, open conversation within cross-functional teams to build trust in and respect for our work.
Test, execute, and iterate: Help deliver products at every stage of the design process, beyond just handing off copy documents. Work closely with the research, product, and data teams to determine the performance of your work so you can iterate and improve product content.
What you’ll bring
You’re a strong writer with 3+ years of experience in a content design, content strategy, or UX writing role. You see your work through a design thinking lens and can offer a range of solutions for any given content design problem.
You’ve contributed to some developed projects and can demonstrate both independent work and collaboration within those projects.
You have advanced knowledge of spelling and grammar as well as an understanding of information architecture. You can make advanced and nuanced edits to writing guidelines, including building out new sections and structuring a style guide to accommodate growing and changing needs. You’re developing skills to evangelize content design within an organization. You understand how to grasp the full context of flow(s) when writing copy. You have knowledge of design and collaboration platforms such as Figma, and you can collaborate on user research projects and use findings to drive copy decisions.
You can clearly communicate direction rationale to peers and wider teams.
What to include in your application
- Your resume and any extra relevant info you think we should know
- A brief cover letter that tells us who you are and why you’re interested in a role at FanDuel
- A portfolio that includes at least one case study of a real-world project. We want to see how you’ve tackled a content design problem and turn insights into actions. If you have a portfolio with multiple examples, even better. Demonstrate your writing skills, product thinking, process, and communication skills. We’ve put together a blog post about what we look for in a case study. If you can’t share a case study with us, please let us know why so we can work something out.
- Any online profiles(e.g. Dribbble, Behance) or personal websites that you think we should see
