Senior UX Writer

Job Description

Have you ever found yourself rewriting onboarding tours, in-app tips, or product tutorials in your head? Do you consider information to be a powerful and essential element of a user's experience? If so, joining Atlassian's Information Experience team might be for you!

This isn't a traditional technical writing role. As an IX writer within the Confluence Design Team, you'll be empowered to experiment with a variety of approaches to information in the UI, documentation, supporting materials, and anywhere else our customers experience information. You'll also be encouraged to push us towards better ways of measuring the success of our content and its relation to customer engagement. In working directly with the Confluence engineering, marketing, product management, and support teams, you'll help create and curate the information that guides customers through their entire product journey.

More about the role: 


This job is for someone who thinks bigger than traditional software documentation. You can explain complex features within tiny amounts of product real estate and communicate value in a compelling, clear and effective way. If you have the following traits you will be a great fit: a knack for creatively engaging with audiences, a need to work in a fast-paced environment, excellent project management skills, an ability to challenge yourself and others, and a love for guiding users through a fun and creative learning process. On any given day you can expect to be testing and validating content, engaging with product managers, developers and designers.

Ideally, you have strong experience with: 

  • Writing high-quality, personable content
  • Explaining complex technical topics to a variety of audiences
  • Using design thinking and processes (sparring, user journeys, personas) to improve or validate your work
  • Working closely with engineers, designers, and PMs in an agile environment
  • A good understanding of software development and agile cloud release processes
  • Confluence and JIRA, or have experience working with wikis and project management software
  • Developing extended content such as blogs, static sites, and visuals

Along with your resume, send or point us to an example of great instructional or learning content that you've created!
