⚠️ Position open in NL/UK/FR ⚠️
We’re looking for a writer of digital experiences to join our multidisciplinary product design team. You’ll be responsible for writing and iterating on the UI copy of WeTransfer’s namesake—internally known as the Transfer product. In addition, you will help shape product briefs; contribute to product roadmaps; create user flows; and optimize your work based on qualitative and quantitative user research findings.
We don’t care if your current title is Content Designer or some flavor of UX Writer or Product Copywriter, as long as you know how to write for effortless and enjoyable user experiences. Technical jargon and robotic error messages make you go “heck no”. But you also understand that a fun and playful tone-of-voice can never get in the way of helping users to get the job done. You’re not satisfied with just putting words in boxes—ideally you’ll have contributed to (or at least meddled in) interaction design, content hierarchy, and information architecture through your work for a website or app. But if you haven’t, don’t sweat it. Just show us that you understand how to create a logical and consistent experience through your writing—or “demonstrate systems thinking,” as the kids say.

A note on remote
Our work environment is hybrid-remote, meaning that we support our employees to work remotely and in the office. We encourage employees to decide for themselves and with their team whether or when to go to the office. However, we recommend that you don't come to the office more than 2-3 per week - since that wouldn't be hybrid anymore.
While it is not necessarily a determining or disqualifying factor for any role, you may be required to complete a standard employment background screening.
