Job Description

The role:

UX Content Writer

Work location:

Waterloo, Ontario

Do you read content in apps, in ads, and on traffic signs and think, “Who wrote that? I would have said XYZ.” Do you take pride in cutting through techno-babble and creating text that people understand? Do you know how to write a call to action that converts like magic? And do you know the difference between an alert, a toast, and a push notification? (OK, if you don’t know the last bit we can teach you.)

We are the content design team that crafts the content that makes sure McAfee consumers can effectively use our consumer products. We're looking for an experienced writer who is comfortable moving between labeling UI fields and buttons in the morning, and copywriting in the afternoon.

A typical day might include:

  • Writing crisp, clear UI text that ensures people know what they need to do and how to do it
  • Writing a user-centric and focused FAQ or help topic
  • Writing concise copy that encourages people to use our products
  • Working closely with user experience design teams to make sure all content reflects workflows and design requirements
  • Working with other content writers and the editor to produce a consistent, conversational voice for McAfee consumer products
  • Communicating with project team members and subject matter experts around the world to gather info and explain why your amazing content is the way it is
  • Resolving content and documentation issues quickly

You’re awesome at:

  • Writing clear, concise, and engaging content for different audiences
  • Juggling more than one project at a time
  • Working with people in different geographic locales and times zones
  • Putting Microsoft Word through its paces -- including its advanced formatting features
  • Working closely with designers, product managers, and developers

You have:

  • 3+ years’ experience in UI or web writing, copywriting and/or user experience design
  • A strong portfolio of effective UI, web content, blogs, or marketing materials that demonstrate an exceptional ability to write engaging content for different audiences
  • A collaborative mindset
  • A degree in English, Professional Writing, Technical or Marketing Communication or any related field that helped you develop your excellent writing skills
  • Some flexibility to work hours that accommodate team members in other time zones
