Content Designer

Remote - EMEA timezones Full time

Content designers at Hotjar dig deep into problem spaces and opportunities, so you'll get to collaborate with folks in many teams and departments to shape solutions or introduce completely new capabilities.

In this specific role, you'll report to the Content Design Lead and work closest with product managers, UX researchers, designers, and engineers focused on stuff like growth, monetization, and some things we can't say out loud yet.
Even though this area spans horizontally across the Hotjar platform, your focus will only be on the priorities within these workstreams. You'll be a partner—not a service desk. When you’re not pairing with your home squads, you’ll be part of the small-but-spicy content design team and participate in content-only initiatives to grow the discipline and the people within it. 

As a content designer, you will: 
  • Partner with a maximum of 3–5 designers to design experiences from start to finish
  • Audit content within your focus areas, propose improvements, and initiate experiment opportunities that align with the team’s business goals 
  • Use research, data, background information, and existing standards to make decisions and create solutions that make Hotjar measurably better
  • Follow and help evolve content guidelines, best practices, and glossaries to scale the goodness of inclusive, accessible, consistent writing 
  • Plan content discovery work that brings users’ content needs to the forefront 
  • Balance the Hotjar voice with messaging priorities and empathy for the person on the other side of the screen
  • Prioritize content work that creates a great user experience and generates a business impact
  • Share ideas, successes, and knowledge to build trust and extend the reach of the discipline overall 

    We’re excited to work with someone who: 
    • Knows how to analyze a problem, consider research and data, then propose and deliver a solution
    • Has experience writing for global audiences and collaborating on localization efforts
    • Takes a values-based, people-first approach to writing for product content 
    • Can explain and justify content recommendations or decisions using evidence 
    • Can build and navigate various stakeholder and collaborator relationships 
    • Knows and applies basic design principles and methods to their work
    • Is excited to try things, fail, learn, and iterate without getting stuck on “perfection” 

Some other requirements you should know about:
  • Hotjar is big on values. You should want to work in a respectful, transparent, and collaborative work environment and be excited to follow the company values, culture, and ways of working
  • You’ll have to complete a background check. It’s confidentially processed by a third-party partner
