Content Designer, New Businesses - Location Flexible

Company Description

Dropbox is a leading global collaboration platform that's transforming the way people work together, from the smallest business to the largest enterprise. With more than 500 million registered users across more than 180 countries, our mission is to design a more enlightened way of working. From our headquarters in San Francisco to eight dedicated Studios and a worldwide team of employees who choose where they work best, our Virtual First approach is leading the way into the future of work.

Team Description

Our Research & Design team crafts delightful experiences that make people's lives easier. We're a close-knit, collaborative group, guided by a highly iterative user-centered design process. Combining research, data, and thoughtful critique, we're discovering needs and solving fundamental problems that impact work and life for millions of people around the world.

Role Description

The Content Design team is a diverse team, with backgrounds that span everything from film making to information design to journalism. We love learning from each other, and get together for Content Design workshops, where we share work and give each other feedback. We’re a kind, funny team, who believe in encouraging and supporting each other. No egos. No drama.

 At Dropbox, the Design team relies on writers for concise, consistent, and delightful language, but also views us as partners in the design process. Important Design-wide (and company-wide) initiatives are staffed and led by content design, and we are expected to give feedback on design that goes far beyond language.

We’re large and established enough to have developed great tools and processes, but still young enough to have many opportunities and unsolved problems. We’re constantly looking for ways to be better. 

We’re looking for an experienced content designer to help design and launch new Dropbox products and features. Joining our virtual-based design team, you’ll do content strategy and user experience writing for products that help people do amazing work.
