IDEO’s Design for Learning Studio is in search of a Copywriter & Content Strategist. We are on the hunt for a unicorn – someone who is a writer and a problem solver, poet with a passion for creating change in the education space.
Writers and content strategists at IDEO don’t just put the punch or polish in communications, they are designers who architect ideas alongside a multidisciplinary team of creative thinkers. You’ll do everything from uncovering insights and working alongside UX designers, researchers, and strategists, to designing digital experiences, soup to nuts.
You will cut straight to the heart of the matter, and turning complex learning platforms and digital experiences into simple and intuitive solutions. You will collaborate with interaction designers to architect a digital world. Then you’ll dive into the details, creating a tone and brand expression that resonates with your audience. What else? You’ll use your storytelling savvy to innovate in the education space – creating videos and designing experiences to persuade tough crowds.
IDEO is a place unlike any other. It’s a place where you can solve diverse, complex challenges for our clients or the organization, alongside thoughtful, intelligent individuals who lead with curiosity, empathy, and optimism. Sure we work hard, but we also intentionally craft moments that allow our community to pause, create, and connect. We encourage our community to bring their whole selves to work, respect the need for work-life balance, and allow for autonomy in the design process and your career.
IDEO’s San Francisco’s Education Studio focuses on designs that improve experiences for learners of all ages. This could be as micro as designing a tablet-based learning platform, and as macro as redesigning an entire education system. We nerd out over education trends and cool kid designs in equal measure – and we hope you do too.
