Writer

San Francisco, CA
Remote Considered

Description

Do you have a passion for pontificating on web design standards and methods — and a need to back up your ponderings with data? Do you believe content marketing is, at bottom, all about education — but that most content marketing doesn’t get that?

If so, this job post’s for you.

Here at Webflow, we’re on a mission to open up the web to many more creators, and we’re looking for a strong writer with a real passion for helping others understand responsive web design, its processes, and goals. This role requires a certain amount of technical knowledge — let’s say, “enough to be dangerous” — as well as a deep understanding of user experience principles, so you’ll need to be equally at home writing tutorials as opinion pieces.

Big bonus points go to people familiar enough with design tools (like Sketch, Photoshop, and Webflow) to craft custom graphics to complement their writing.

If you:

  • View content as a crucial element of any digital experience 
  • Think of blogging as an educational discipline
  • Have experience working with web or product design teams
  • Have working knowledge of design tools
  • Have a background in blogging, content strategy, copywriting, or design

We’d love to talk!

Note: You'll need valid U.S. work authorization to join us.

Responsibilities

In this role, your primary responsibility will be to regularly concept and write helpful, high-quality content on topics related to web design, product design, and freelancing.

That said, there’ll be plenty of opportunities to write other content, such as ebooks, emails, and microsites.

Requirements

  • Deep knowledge of the English language, including style, mechanics, and grammar (and a preference for descriptive over prescriptive rules) 
  • Ability to adhere to well-defined voice and style guides, and apply tonal variations as necessary
  • Familiarity with AP, Chicago Manual, and/or Yahoo! style guidelines 
  • In-depth knowledge of responsive web design and UX principles

Very-nice-to-haves:

  • Knowledge of Webflow and/or HTML/CSS/JS 
  • Ability to craft visuals to complement written content 
  • Working knowledge of search engine optimization (SEO)

Application

Provide at least 3 sample articles covering a web/product design topic. If you have samples of design work you’ve done, please provide those as well.

Equal opportunity

Webflow is an equal opportunity employer. We’re dedicated to building a team where diversity in both ideas and identities is not only welcomed, but encouraged.
