User Interface Writer

UI writers develop the language that users see in an interface (all the
text on the page, the error and confirmation messages, etc). They
understand what kinds of interactions are confusing and propose ways to
improve these. The overall goal is to create a product that's unique and
compelling.

As a UI writer, you'll work one-on-one with interaction designers to
develop product and feature scenarios, reshape and refine task flows,
and use minimum words to convey maximum meaning. You'll work with
project managers to understand text needs and deliver warm, consistent
language.

Requirements: creative writing skills; experience in user-centered
product design; outstanding ability to write text for the Web;
familiarity with information architecture and task flow analysis;
excellent communication and interpersonal skills. Thoroughness and a
great ability to keep track

opportunities, please contact Michelle DeChene via email at
