About the Role:

We’re seeking an innovative writer to develop UX copy and content that makes good on our brand promise of helping consumers make smart decisions.

As a Senior UX Writer at RealSelf, you’ll collaborate closely with our Product, SEO, UX Design, and Research teams to identify content needs and fill them in strategic, scalable, and impactful ways.

  • Demonstrate data-driven content decisions
  • Show a deep understanding of how skillfully executed content helps us hit our high-level business goals

About You:

Our environment is fun and collaborative, but it’s also fast-paced, so we need someone who’s comfortable driving and executing on content development from end-to-end. If you thrive on hitting ambitious goals and being a key player on a whip-smart team, we want to talk to you.

You may be the right fit if you have:

  • Bachelor's degree in Creative Writing, Journalism, Marketing, Digital Communications, or a related field
  • 7+ years experience in online journalism, content marketing, e-commerce writing, or content development
  • Exceptional writing and editing abilities
  • Expertise in mobile-first content development
  • Deep experience with A/B content and message testing, analysis, and optimization
  • Proficiency with a varied set of software and editing tools
