Are you the first to flag when messaging doesn’t land, or “sing”?

Do people often come to you saying, “I need help making this less confusing”?

Do you believe that the right words at the right time can help solve customer problems?

If you answered “Yes!” to the above, we’d love to meet you.

We’re looking for a UX Writer to join our fast-growing Content Strategy team. You’ll be our go-to for clear, concise, and compelling messaging on Wayfair.com – striking a balance between an engaging and straightforward tone, and making meaningful connections in as few words as possible.

You’ll specialize in crafting conversations for user flows and UI elements – from landing pages and modals to success/error messages. And you’ll partner closely with SEO to optimize keywords for A/B tests. It’s an opportunity to demonstrate that word choice can make a huge impact on the user experience.

Ideal candidates are not only terrific writers, but also sought-after collaborators, savvy content marketers, and detail-oriented editors who work well in entrepreneurial environments. If you’ve ever been called “tenacious” or a “UX evangelist,” that’s a plus: We’re a small team in a big org, and you’ll be relied on to consistently, persuasively advocate for best-in-class messaging on behalf of our millions of customers.

What you’ll do:

  • Write clear, concise, and compelling copy for new features and services
  • Ensure consistent messaging across platforms (app, mobile web, desktop)
  • Carry the Wayfair brand voice through multiple channels, while driving feature-specific tone and style standards
  • Work cross-functionally with product designers (UX/UI), product managers, engineers, and merchandisers, working collaboratively to make the customer journey as user-friendly as possible
  • Proactively recommend A/B copy tests, partnering with SEO to identify which keywords to leverage
  • Demonstrate a strong understanding of how customers interact with our website, and use data to determine how to solve customer problems and make our messaging even more compelling

Desired skills & experience:

  • A bachelor’s degree in English, journalism, library science, communications, marketing, or a related field
  • 1-3  years of professional copywriting experience for consumers and consumer brands (e-commerce experience is a big plus)
  • A portfolio that demonstrates strong writing and conversation mapping skills, as well as an understanding of how to identify user problems
  • A collaborative work style and the ability to think holistically—understanding how design and copy work together to provide customers with a consistent end-to-end message
  • Strong multi-tasking, time-management, leadership, and organizational skills
  • A motivated, self-starter attitude with demonstrated ability to push independent and team projects to completion

Note: Please be able to provide 2-3+ examples and samples of your content writing work or a portfolio. We are looking for examples that demonstrate your content strategy and thinking process.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
