UX Writer Lead

Everyone deserves to live life fully. But when it comes down to it, our financial partners are usually more of a hindrance than a help. Affirm’s goal is to give people more opportunities to lead a prosperous life—without asking them to sign away their future in hidden fees and endless debt. A big part of this mission is being the easiest-to-use and most customer-friendly financial option out there.

The UX writer lead will report to our copy lead, and will work with a high degree of independence, collaborating on a daily basis with our awesome product designers, product managers, engineers, and user researchers. Being part of Affirm’s copy team will help all our writers orient themselves around a unified brand vision.

There will also be some flexibility to focus on areas of interest and to work on projects outside of UX if you’d like.
