UX Writer Jobs: Zume, Amazon & HBO

UX Writer Jobs: Zume, Amazon & HBO
By Gordon Macrae • Issue #23 • View online

A few pieces from around the internets. Storytelling and UX design from a former Disney employee-turned-designer. Ethics in UX and Writing. How to balance full-time work with creative projects (something I’ve been failing at recently).
This will be the last jobs post of 2018. I’m working on an end of year round-up for next week and then I’m going to take a break until January. It’s the holiday season after-all. We’ll pick back up in the New Year. Bliadhna Mhath Ùr!
Europe
Amazon are looking for a UX Writer in Madrid. You’ll be a native English speaker with fluency in Spanish, German or French. Good job you followed through on your New Years Resolution to learn a new language.
Futureheads are recruiting for a Freelance UX / Marketing Copywriter in London. You’ll sit on the marketing team but have responsibilities across the product.
The Department of Education is looking for a Content Designer in Coventry. I once saw the city of Coventry advertise itself by saying “only an hour and a half from London”, which seems like a back-handed compliment.
Babbel are still looking for a Senior UX Writer in Berlin. You’ll be fluent in English and have 5+ years of experience.
Zalando are after a UX Writer in Berlin. Small company (less than 10) so I’d bet there’s a lot of scope for future leadership roles.
North America
Better are looking for a Senior UX Writer in New York. You’ll need to have a passion for mortgages and short sentences. Seriously.
Obviously, Google are still hiring UX Writers.
Macropace Technologies might sound like a company from Futurama but they’re in Mountain View and they’re looking for a UX Writer. You’ll have leadership experience and 4+ years of writing for products.
Zume are recruiting for a UX Writer in San Francisco. Besides the usual perks you’ll also get “free and discounted pizza”. It’s unclear where the pizza comes from.
HBO are looking for a UX Writer in Seattle. You’ll “unify and shepherd the HBO voice”, presumably in a well-lit room with a high-production budget. I can’t guarantee all meetings take place on the set of the West Wing though.
Amazon are looking for an Editorial Manager for Alexa. You’ll have 8+ years of experience as a UX Writer or Content Strategist. Your remit will be as the PoC for Alexa in Canada.
