Sometimes 404 errors produce hilarious unintentional art
Sometimes 404 errors produce hilarious unintentional art
I’m writing this with builders coming in and out of our flat to repair a broken gutter. Once again, Peep Show got it spot on.
A woman in my storytelling class read a great Italo Calvino story about a haunted house (which I now can’t find, anywhere) which got me thinking about his quote about writing, which is also about UX writing:
“My working method has more often than not involved the subtraction of weight.”
I read a lot of good articles this week, some highlights:
I came across this advice – give freely and they will buy – as research for the new UX Writing course I’m helping to contribute on.
It seems like counterintuitive advice but I’m convinced it’s the only way to make money on the internet these days. The article by Cory Doctorow article is over ten years old now but the advice still holds true, particularly this line:
“Most people who download the book don’t end up buying it, but they wouldn't’t have bought it in any event, so I haven’t lost any sales, I'’ve just won an audience.”
I get a lot of requests for remote working jobs. It’s worth taking a minute to read through this article on the dark side of remote working. The grass isn’t always greener.
On with the show.

North America
RallyHealth have fixed their job ad for a UX / Creative Writer and Content Strategist in San Francisco. In light of the gentle ribbing I gave them last week, I’m giving them top spot here.
CreditWise are looking for a UX Writer (with a blend of content strategy responsibilities) in DC. You’ll have 3+ years of experience in content strategy or design.
IBM are looking for a Content Designer in Austin, Texas. You’ll be on the road for 20-30% of the time, and not in a Jack Kerouac way.
Google want a UX Writer for their Google Hardware product in Palo Alto. Four years of experience and a willingness to live in / near Palo Alto required. That last part is the hardest sell.
Shopify are looking for Senior Content Strategists in their Montreal office. They’re open to helping you relocate. Salary in the $90k-110k range.
Ogilvy are looking for a Lead Experience Writer in New York. 7+ years of experience for this one. Agency-side so likely a mix of copywriting + UX writing.
Europe
GetYourGuide are still after a Senior UX Writer and HelloFresh are also still recruiting for a UX Writer, both roles in Berlin. heycar also want an Intern UX Copywriter in the same city.
Monarch IT are recruiting for a UX Content Designer / Writer in Manchester. They’re looking for someone with a “strong number of years within working in user experience and/or copywriting”. Presumably so they can fix their own job ads.
The IG Group are looking for a UX Copywriter in London. 2-3 years of copywriting experience and “a genuine interest in finance”. Your pinstripes better be legit.
DWP Digital want a Content Designer in Manchester. Salaries of £48,190 for a content designer and £66,290 for a senior content designer and £38,028 for an associate content designer.
Babylon Health are recruiting for a Content Writer (UX) in London. 3 years of experience required here.
Content Labs are looking for a Content Copywriter (English Speaking) in Madrid. This looks like more of a copywriter role. I can tell because it has the word ‘copywriter’ in the job title.
Around the World
Atlassian are hiring a Principal Content Designer in Sydney, Australia. Get on it.
