Lead UX Writer

We’re looking for an experienced UX Content Strategist to help us create a product that empowers people to manage and grow their money confidently. That means simple-yet-sophisticated financial planning and powerful services like high-interest cash and automated investing as we drive toward a bold vision of self-driving money. That’s a lot for an app, which is where you come in. You love simplifying the complex and creating intuitive product experiences through better UX content. You tirelessly advocate for the user’s point of view, and can translate that point of view into narrative and copy for a more intuitive app experience.

What are we offering?
A meaningful mission at a company where content has a true seat at the table as a strategic partner in developing trust with our clients. You’re not only a writer, but a strategic thinker who connects our mission to the real-life people whose financial lives we’re trying to improve.

What will you do here?
You’ll play a strategic role along with researchers, designers, product managers, and engineers to develop a deep understanding of our clients’ perspective. You’ll leverage those insights to create compelling user journeys and content that helps people understand their finances holistically and make confident decisions.

What do you bring with you?

  • A strong belief that clear communication can make or break a product experience
  • An interest in the finer points of wordsmithery
  • Experience working with product managers and UX designers, and a portfolio that demonstrate a history of successful results
  • Experience with content standards and best practices for web and mobile interfaces
  • An understanding of personal finance is a plus
  • 4+ years of experience in similar roles

Everyone across the financial spectrum deserves to live secure and rewarding lives. In order to successfully serve clients across the United States, the Wealthfront team is focused on hiring team members with a diverse range of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Wealthfront is a nextgen banking service. We help you manage your money for both your short-term and long-term goals by providing a cash account with a top-of-market APY, best-in-class automated investment management, and free financial advice, anytime you want it. We entered into the banking space in a big way this year with the launch of our cash account that offers an interest rate 23x greater than the national average. We’ve been overwhelmed by the response and have grown nearly 100% this year already to manage nearly $20 billion in total client assets.  

Our ultimate vision is to optimize and automate all of our clients’ finances and build what we call Self-Driving Money™️. We want clients to be able to automatically deposit their paycheck into their Wealthfront account, and let us take care of the rest — paying their bills, topping off their emergency fund or 401(k), and investing the rest based on their specific goals and lifestyle. To get there, we’ll be focusing the bulk of our 2019 efforts on creating a better alternative to what the banking industry provides. Join us so you can help us turn this industry on its head and build a service that our clients don't just like, they love.
