This is Adyen
Speed is the foundation of our company. We think fast. We work fast. We launch fast. We put our merchants at the center of everything we do, & we never stop until the job is done. Were creating our own path, with a global team driving sustainable growth. We dont do hierarchy, egos or boundaries. Not possible is not in our vocabulary freedom is. This is who we are: honest, direct & always bringing an element of fun into our work. If youre ready to join the power of fast, keep reading.
Were looking for a UX Writer to work alongside our passionate & creative Product Design team as an integral part of the design process. Adyens UX word nerds collaborate with designers to write UI copy that shapes & uncomplicates products across our entire company. Payment products generally arent easy, but were on a mission to raise the bar in fintech. We strive to create products that arent just functional, but can be delightful experiences for our several thousand merchants & their millions of shoppers. We value our merchants & our team above all else; we always write for their benefit.
What youll do:
- Write amazing copy across multiple product areas while implementing & contributing to our overall content strategy & design system;
- Intuitively understand the needs of all types of users, & hone your ideas by seeking out user insights & team feedback;
- Present your writing choices effectively & articulate their value to stakeholders, including designers, developers, & other writers;
- Push beyond just microcopy; regularly try (and fail) to use new ways of structuring, designing, & explaining content to improve the user experience;
- Spread the gospel of the Oxford comma, & make sure its always used where it should be. Period.
Who you are:
- Youre highly skilled in adapting the English language. You can write or structure the same idea in 20 different ways, & you know exactly which 19 versions to throw away;
- Youre excited by complexity. You thrive when breaking down financial processes & technical jargon into compelling & seamless microcopy;
- Youre not afraid to speak up when you spot a possible hiccup in the user experience, & you know which design or copy changes will solve it;
- You can balance multiple priorities. You see how everything fits into the full design landscape, from a subheading to a full product flow. Still, not one rogue hyphen slips past you;
- You have several years of relevant experience. Experience in SaaS or B2B environments is a plus.
