Job Description

Please note: We have an ongoing recruitment process (no deadlines) meaning if this role is online it is still open. In case of a large volume of applications we might take the role down to allow our team sufficient time to review them thoroughly. In case we do not find a right match, we will repost the role again. 

Join our 100% remote team and start your adventure with komoot.

About the role

Weโ€™re looking for a seasoned UX Writer (or Content Designer) to join our versatile, collaborative, and impactful team. This role will partner closely with designers and PMs across multiple squads to solve customer problems, elevate the komoot personality and voice across the UI, and ensure intuitive user experiences across our 11 languages. If youโ€™re excited about words, usability, and helping people get outside and enjoy nature, weโ€™d love to hear from you. 

This role requires a healthy dose of customer obsession. Whether itโ€™s running usability tests, using existing data to make decisions, or writing clear AB test plans, our ideal candidate demonstrates strong data-backed rationale for their writing, from single-word microcopy to high-level communication plans. Youโ€™ll work in quick iterations, with a goal to solve problems and bring value to our users quickly, measuring successes and failures as you go.

Ready for your next adventure?

What you will do  

  • Write in the komoot style and personality to create content flows and UI copy that are accessible, intuitive, and upbeat. 
  • Collaborate with designers to shape UI design as needed to improve usability and translation.
  • Map user journeys to better understand flows and customer experience. Incorporate UX best practices, heuristics, and conventions into your writing. 
  • Connect your work to the customer or business problem being solved and the impact it creates. Back up your decisions with data and strong rationale. 
  • Work with cross-functional peers to better understand our customers, the language they use, and how our products meet their needs. Integrate your learnings into writing guidelines and patterns.
  • Facilitate translation by providing context to translators, tracking translation progress, formatting keys and strings in our translation software, etc.
  • Develop an informed POV on both user and business needs in order to deliver the best solution and contribute to squad roadmaps.
  • Collaborate with other UX and Marketing Writers to create and refine style guides, design system patterns, and other content guidelines. 
  • Integrate with our Copy and UX teams; proofreading and giving feedback to your fellow writers, collaborating on projects, and helping us level up UX Writing at komoot.

Why you will love it

  • We have your costs covered for your co-working space membership or your work-from-home office setup and the latest devices and equipment to do your best work.
  • Youโ€™ll become an essential part of our diverse and international team with colleagues based in 20+ countries across Europe.
  • 38 paid days off (inclusive public holidays) โ€“ you are free to take those days whenever it suits you, including a well-deserved winter holiday break.
  • We love seeing people grow. That's why each team member gets โ‚ฌ2,000 and 3 additional days to spend on professional development each year. Classes, conferences, books โ€“ your choice!

Youโ€™ll be successful in this role if you

  • Have minimum 4 years experience as a UX Writer or Content Designer for global software products.
  • Write impeccable English copy with an eye for usability, brand voice, and translatability across multiple channels and platforms. Youโ€™re able to turn even the most technical content into something warm, human, and helpful.
  • Are a strong communicator and can clearly explain your thinking, process, and rationale. Youโ€™re comfortable giving and receiving feedback, and work with diverse teams to get buy-in on ideas.
  • Are comfortable working with design tools and frameworks like Figma, user flows, journey mapping, usability heuristics, etc. 
  • Have experience writing for translation, preparing context for linguists, string management, and getting words into software across languages.
  • Are organized and comfortable managing multiple workstreams, deadlines, and projects at the same time.
  • Care deeply about the impact of your work. You enjoy solving problems for all kinds of users and keep track of what you learn. 
  • Are a team player and enjoy working collaboratively alongside designers, developers, and product managers. 
  • Want to be part of a high-performing team where continuous improvement, collaboration, open feedback, and communication are encouraged.
