Job Description:

Aquent's Fortune 500 client is looking for an exceptional UX Content Strategist to work a 6 month contract, with a strong possibility of extending, on-location for 40 hours/week, in Bellevue, WA.

JOB DESCRIPTION:

  • As a Content Strategist you will be a key contributor in delivering smart, relevant and connected experiences within a focused but nimble UX team dedicated to crafting, effective, delightful and global product experiences that artfully unify customer needs with business goals.
  • Work collaboratively within an agile product design team made up of product managers, engineers, and fellow UXers to deliver outstanding product experiences through iterative releases

  • Collaborate with UX product and project teams to craft self-improving and increasingly more relevant and personal customer experiences and systems
  • Partner with UX leads, visual and interaction designers, information architects, researchers, and client-side engineers to optimize the content elements based on usability, intuitiveness, consistency, business metrics, and time to market
  • Communicate use cases, states and detailed content specifications through both collaboration as well as physical deliverables such content matrices, copy style guides, and working within layout comps or lo-fi prototype
  • Assure project content meets standards of quality, measured in terms of persuasion, consistency, delightfulness, and uniqueness
  • Describe and present your methods, content explorations and tradeoff rationale along with a recommendation to peers, team partners, business partners and UX leadership
  • Estimate work effort and help clarify deliverables
  • Review other products and content design approaches to understand emerging standards and innovation
  • Advocate for best content practices within the UX team and the larger product teams.
  • To be a successful Content Strategist, it is a given that you are gifted with words, able to craft, curate, edit and align information, but you should also be a systems-designer with a solid grounding in content organization as well as the art of persuasion and marketing.
