Scribd is seeking a UX Writer who will drive the vision and direction of our design efforts across mobile and web platforms.

We work closely with the other teams including product, engineering, QA, and customer happiness to anticipate our readers' wants and needs then deliver the solutions that keep the pages turning for our millions of active monthly users.

About you

You work with words inside of user experience design, so you can technically be called a UX Writer, but you may go by the alias of Content Designer or UX Content Strategist. Labels aside, your words help form the customer's experience within a digital product, as well as the variety of channels a customer may interact with throughout an experience.

* You'll be collaborating with the product designers across multiple teams to craft language across multiple contexts in all areas of our product.
* You'll drive the tactical execution of Product and Email writing, in close partnership with the Content Strategist who is looking at the bigger picture strategic approach.
* You want to understand who our users are, and understand that it is a global audience, not just North American.
* Understanding that both design and copy benefit from a thoughtful system, not just adhoc solutions.
* You embrace the customer journey and fully embrace it is bigger than a single experience or moment.


* 3+ years experience working as part of a larger team, preferably within a Product or Design Organization -- this is a highly collaborative and fast-paced role. (This is not an entry level position. It is a Mid/Senior level role.)
* 3+ years' experience professional copywriting and copy editing experience.
* Experience "owning" content strategy or leading copy within an organization, preferable as part of a Design Team.
* A portfolio of product or marketing pieces as well as cross platform examples that you can link to your experience.
* Experience with A/B testing and user research around copy.
* Experience with internationalization.
* A deep understanding of component based product design or UI patterns.
* Ability to multitask and prioritize in a fast-paced, flexibly-structured environment.
* Experience collaborating actively with designers, product managers, engineers, senior leadership and other partners.
* Experience with the common design and prototyping skills including: Sketch, Marvel, InvisionApp, Illustrator, Photoshop, Framer, Pixate, HTML/CSS/JS, etc.Language fluency in more than one language is a real plus.
