We're looking to add a new intern to our UX writing team at FREE NOW.
UX writing is still a relatively new discipline at FREE NOW, but we're growing our small team in 2021. Right now, we're looking for a talented and enthusiastic person to join us and learn about UX writing and content strategy. You'll be part of a distributed team based across offices in Hamburg, Berlin and Barcelona so you'll learn all about working autonomously and collaborating remotely with a friendly, inspiring team of writers, localisers, designers and researchers as well as other teams like marketing, product, tech and data. We localise all of our content for lots of European markets, so you'll also get to learn about translation and localisation.
Our interns at FREE NOW are paid and we don't expect you to do things like make coffee or spend your days chained to a printer (or whatever the zoom equivalent of this would be). This is a genuine opportunity to learn and to get hands on, practical experience which you'll be able to take with you into future product roles.
We don't ask for much, but there are a few must-haves:
You must be a good writer. This one's a non-negotiable and we'll need to see some writing samples (these don't have to be UX-related). You'll also be given a small task to complete.
You must be friendly, kind and willing to learn by doing. This role requires you to get stuck in and have a go, but you'll always have support if you need it.
Here are a few of the things you'll be doing:
* Writing copy for new features and iterating on the existing wording within our apps
* Learning about and advocating for the importance of clear, concise copy in our products and pointing out areas that could do with improvement
* Auditing existing content and suggesting improvements
* Working with designers to consider information hierarchy and bring experiences to life with (or without) words
Here's what we'd like you to have done before FREE NOW:
* Ideally you'll have a degree or relevant experience in a product, design, strategy or writing focused discipline
* You'll need some writing experience, but this needn't be in a paid position
* You're able to spot a typo or rogue apostrophe from a mile away and you point out errors with grace and kindness
* You must be native/C2 level in English with a natural flair for writing good copy. If you're also fluent in one of the following languages, we'd love to hear from you...
A few other must haves are:
* A demonstrated understanding of basic UX writing principles
* Patience and the ability to communicate with colleagues with empathy
* Sense of humour and a proactive approach to work and learning
This role will work remotely and will run for 6 months. Whilst we'd love to be able to see candidates based all over the world, due to restrictions, you'll need to be based in either Germany or Spain to join the team.
Not sure you meet every point above? Send us a really great cover letter explaining why you think you'd be a star in this role. If you're keen and quick to learn new things, we're happy to teach you.
