Aquent is seeking a contract copywriter / content specialist to support our Fortune 100 client in north Austin on a number of online content initiatives. We're looking for that rare ability to write error-free online support and UI content in an engaging, customer-friendly tone. Our client prefers that you have a high-tech product background, and/or have written for another large product company like Intel, HP, Microsoft, or similar company.

If you reside in Austin, you can work opt to work off-site.

Marketing or creative agency experience is not required – our client’s ideal candidate would have digital copywriting or UI-focused writing experience and an affinity for creating helpful, user-facing content in plain language. Along with writing original content, you will also edit, proofread and (as needed) rewrite large volumes of online content for global consistency, user-friendliness, Web-readiness, and adherence to our client’s internal style guide.

It's important that you have a firm grasp of copywriting, copy editing and content strategy for the Web, as well as a basic grasp of interface design, usability and related concepts. Extensive knowledge of computer hardware and software is helpful but not mandatory; however, the ability to communicate advanced technical concepts using plain, globally translatable, error-free language is essential.

Important note: This is not a Technical Writer position.
