  • Use data-driven insights about experience gaps and customer pain points to brainstorm and build proposed experience solutions. 
  • Drive the definition of a clear and actionable strategic direction for content in this problem/solution space. 
  • Coordinate and advise content designers on other teams to share context and clarity you’ve gleaned from customer research. 
  • Use data and research to evaluate your content’s impact, and push for continuous improvement that shows tangible results.

  • Excellent, highly creative writing and critical-thinking skills.   
  • Experience working with content standards, such as style and voice and tone guidelines.
