• Implement consistency in messaging across various departments or features, ensuring cohesive narratives while upholding brand voice and tone 
• Adhere to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) in drafting and revising copy 
• Proofread your work and the work of others 
• Take stakeholder feedback into account, and propose alternatives as necessary 
• Contribute to the team’s content repository 
• Partner with content strategy and design in tracking and documenting the work flow; help build/refine a content tracking system to streamline our processes 

What you’ll need: 

• Familiarity with tenets of design research, interaction design and product design 
• Growth mentality; receptive to feedback from stakeholders, peers and managers 
• Self-motivation; able to work independently, but equally comfortable in a group environment, sharing your work with teammates 
• Agility and adaptability – the priorities of an e-commerce business are ever changing 
• Bachelor’s degree and 2–3 years of writing experience, preferably customer-facing in a tech, retail or e-commerce environment
