  • You’ll partner with legal, localization, marketing, and customer support to ensure your creations are appropriately and responsibly launched in different markets.
  • You’ll help the Product team level up in UX Writing and will create tools and frameworks that will enable team members to improve their practices
  • You’ll be an active contributor to our Design system Cobalt by producing and share UX Writing guidelines

Who you'll be working with:

  • You'll work with our talented Product Design team including Product designers, Brand designer and User Researcher, reporting directly to Solèneour Head of Product Design
  • You’ll be part of a 20-person Product team, and will work closely with the Product Managers, as well as with Data Analysts and Developers, inside your squad.
