Product Writing Intern

We are hiring a Product Writing Intern to help bring clarity, concision, and delight to the Slack product. Writing is a valued craft at Slack: We partner deeply with Product Designers, Product Marketers, and Product Managers to ensure the user experience of Slack’s products reflects our company values of empathy, courtesy, and playfulness. You’ll have the opportunity to work with a small and collaborative team, and you’ll be paired with a Product Writer who will act as your mentor throughout the course of the program. This will be a paid internship in our San Francisco office.

- Develop product copy/content strategy for your features

- Partner closely with User Research, Product Design, Product Marketing, and other stakeholders to understand the requirements for features and produce clear, humane, and pleasant user experiences

- Give thoughtful feedback to other writers, and present your own work for feedback

- Always find just the right word, and the right emoji

 

Requirements

- Must be graduating December 2018 or later

- A cover letter and writing sample (writing for software interfaces is a plus)

- Some previous work experience where you were part of a team

- A strong product/design sense and ability to recognize when copy isn’t the solution to a problem

- Understanding of the Slack voice, and ability to extend it and adapt it based on context
