Content & Writing
  • Writing, content strategy, design thinking, collaboration with Product Management, Data Science, Research, information architecture, Figma, stakeholder alignment, presentations
  • 5+ years working in a product design environment on consumer apps
  • A willingness to pitch ideas to cross-functional stakeholders, and an understanding of when it makes sense to push back and when it doesn't
  • An appetite for problem solving in a landscape that changes quickly. If you like to identify gaps in processes, inefficiencies that could be smoothed over, or things that simply could work better, you'll fit right in
  • Ability to strategically prioritize multiple projects. You'll have plenty to do-know where your efforts will have the most impact
  • This should go without saying, but you should be able to express your ideas meticulously in writing. Hopefully, in very concise writing
  • Write words that bring financial access to people across the world. You'll be in charge of interface copy in our app, which not only propels money lending, but also experiences that occur outside the app
  • Create compelling long-term strategies that allow content to scale globally
  • Change gears easily, working with different products and teams
  • Use metrics and research to inform (but not dictate!) your work
  • Influence core features of our app. Our design team has input on all aspects of how products and features work, not just the words they use
  • Collaborate with product designers, researchers, engineers, product managers, product marketers, and many others
Desired Qualifications
  • A degree in English, Psychology, Design, HCI or any area that emphasizes story-telling
  • Experience in design for consumer mobile apps. Content design experience in other environments is also useful, as long as you can articulate how your approach would or wouldn't adapt to the world of mobile apps/consumer software
