ABOUT THE ROLE

Content Designers are comfortable advocating for the value of content design and their work with one
or more product teams. You use words and content-first design thinking to help users complete their
tasks within our products, but are also generally competent in research, content prototyping, and
working collaboratively. Most of your time is spent with existing systems and processes but you aren’t
afraid to suggest new ways of doing things. You're a content designer who wants to help build and
grow the content design discipline, and loves to learn, collaborate, and solve complex problems.
