About the position


This is a position for an experienced UX strategist who has a knack for helping clients with content. We’re looking for someone who creates connections between content, design, data and business goals. This often involves coaching the client on UX best practices as well as how to write for the web. 


We recognize that content continues to be an area where our clients need help. So a key part of this role is to mentor client teams to become better at writing for the web, and writing for the user.


Please note: We are not looking for someone to write content for our clients. We are also not looking for someone to help our client with grammar. 


The ideal candidate will understand design systems and will work to empower clients to think about their content as a system when crafting their websites. This person is also curious and constantly exploring better ways to solve problems. If the client’s content problem has not been solved, we want someone who will continue to explore better ways to tackle it.


The position is senior level. The candidate will be expected to run projects as a practice leader within a project team and may, at times, serve as a product owner. 


Our typical web projects require a strategist to design and execute research plans. All recommendations to our clients are rooted in data as well as experience. On a typical project, you might spend about 65% of time dedicated to UX strategy and 35% of time dedicated to content strategy.


This role is for you if you are a critical thinker, an empathetic communicator, and detail-oriented person committed to delivering great work.
