Senior Content Strategist/UX Copywriter

0 people like this description

So, I don't know if you're open to new opportunities or not...

...but I just got in an urgent need from Razorfish and your skillset looks spot-on for what they want to see. The full job description is below, but to sum up: Razorfish (onsite at Citi in Irving) needs a full-time UX Copywriter, ASAP. The budget we've been given is $40/hr, BUT if you're interested, just let me know what you need and I'll see if I can make it work. (No promises.) The work is 75% content strategy and 25% copywriting. This is a full-time, onsite role with weekly pay (W2, not 1099) and health benefits through the contract period, then a planned conversion over to Razorfish's payroll at the end of one year. And yes, Razorfish has an amazing company and team culture, just as you'd expect.

To be considered as a candidate, you'll need to get me work samples of most or all of the following: inventories, content audits, process documents, experience plans with taxonomy, and content maps. If you can provide samples within the financial services sphere, or from mobile/app projects, or from large-scale enterprise companies, those are all big plusses.
