Senior Content Designer, Jira Software

Have you ever found yourself rewriting onboarding tours, in-app tips, or product tutorials in your head? If you can explain complex features within tiny amounts of product real estate and communicate value in a compelling, clear, and effective way, come join Atlassian's Content Design team!

We're hiring a Senior Content Designer to join our Jira Cloud team, someone who's ready to not only own the information experience for their customer journey, but also contribute to and help drive projects that benefit the larger team here at Atlassian.

In other words, this isn’t a traditional technical or UX writing role. As part of the Atlassian Design team, you will:

  • Refine and drive content strategy, and apply the Atlassian voice and tone in a way that drives engagement with Jira Software users.
  • Work closely with the design, PM, marketing, and engineering teams to understand customer insights, the purpose of features and how best to explain them to the right audience.
  • Deliver effective UX writing and longer form explanatory content (how-to articles, tutorials, etc.) for Jira Software on time and with quality against an agile and frequent product release schedule.

When you join the team, you’d be expected to have:

  • Excellent writing skills
  • A love for user content and UX (both long-form content and microcopy)
  • Experience working with product managers, engineers, designers, marketing, and support
  • A proven track record of working in and managing projects in an agile, fast paced environment
  • An understanding of how content drives business objectives
  • 5+ years of professional UX writing/content design experience

And ideally, we’d hope you’d have:

  • A knack for creatively engaging with audiences
  • Experience using design thinking and design processes (critique, user journeys, personas) to improve or validate your work
  • Experience in building out writing and design guidelines
  • Consumer and enterprise content experience

Show us something:

Along with your resume, send or point us to an examples or a portfolio of your work. Ideally, send us work that shows us your UX writing and documentation experience.
