UX Writer Jobs - PayPal, Wix & Autotrader

UX Writer Jobs - PayPal, Wix & Autotrader
By Gordon Macrae • Issue #6 • View online

Hello to a raft of new subscribers (thanks to Kinneret Yifrah for the shout out), I hope you know what you’re getting yourself into.
I’m currently reading Gil Scott-Heron’s posthumously published autobiography The Last Holiday (continuing the theme of discovering new music through obituaries, Scott-Heron was one of the first artists I discovered after he died).
He has a great line about success that’s stuck with me this week:
I feel that how successful you were depended on how comfortable you were. Some people were just small town people, and there was nothing wrong with that.
I like that line about being comfortable. It reminded me of this quote from John Waters:
Real wealth is never having to spend time around assholes
Success means different things to different people.
There are currently 410 of you on this list. ‘410’ is the police code for requested assistance reporting.
On with the show.

PayPal have a ton of open roles at the moment, including some entry-level roles (rare find alert). Take your pick from UX Writer (recent graduate) in Austin; UX Writer in San Jose; Content Strategist in San Jose; and Lead Content Strategist in San Jose. Thanks to Anjana Menon for these.
Creative Circle are looking for a Content Strategist + Writer in Washington DC so it’s almost certainly a government role. Cyber-security or technology experience is preferred.
Sunquest Information Systems are after a UX-Technical Writer in Tucson, Arizona. If you ever thought you were a loner, don’t worry, it won’t last.
HireMinds are looking for a UX Writer in Boston, Massachusetts. Contract role, you’ll be working across brand, marketing and operations. So probably not a straight UX writing role.
Modis want a UX Writer job Milpitas CA to work for them in, you guessed it Milpitas, California.
Filter are hiring for a UX Writer in Seattle. Contract position with experience in mobile.
Firewood are after a UX Writer in Mountain View. They’re looking for a “buttoned up” writer with five years of experience in an agency environment. No word on what you should wear on “dress-down” day. Button-up, button-down? It’s a social minefield.
Peace International want a Senior UX Writer, also in Mountain View. You’ll have experience in Korean for this one. Which should limit the applicant pool.
Heyday want a Conversation Design / Copywriter in Montreal. You’ll have 2-5 years of experience and speak French.
Rest of the World
Research Gate are after a Senior UX Writer in Berlin. They’re a team of “passionate optimists” who are changing the way scientists communicate. You’ll have 5+ years of experience.
emagine are hiring for a UX Writer in Nice. Nice work if you can get it. I’ll get my coat.
Wix are recruiting an ADI Writer in Tel Aviv. This is a freelance, full-time position and they’re open to remote work.
Lightworkers are hiring a mid-level UX Writer in Cape Town. You’ll be education to a “tertiary” level. Which is a phrase I haven’t seen since GCSE Geography. Right on. are looking for a UX Writer in Manchester, England. You’ll be able to “bounce back” when your ideas get “shot down” and “get a buzz” from working in a fast-paced environment. Which all sounds very stressful.
D&E Group are after a Senior UX Writer in Salford, England. You’ll be working on the BBC’s digital experiences. The job description is all in lowercase which always really annoys me.
Autotrader want a Copywriter to work across UX and Marketing in London. You’ll report into their Head of Content Strategy but expect to write some marketing copy. Tidy.
My name is Gordon Macrae. By day I run UX, Product Management, and Data programs for an education company. By night I’m a freelance UX writer. Got a job tip or opinions about UX writing roles? I’d love to hear from you, reply directly to this email.
Good luck out there!
