Senior UX Writer, Homeowner Experience

Remote

Better is redefining homeownership and making it simpler, faster—and most importantly—more accessible for everyone. We leverage technology and expertise to find ways that we can make the homebuying journey more approachable and understandable.

Right now we’re funding over $3 billion in home loans per month
We’ve funded over $14 billion in loans and $3.5 billion in insurance
We ranked #1 in the U.S. on LinkedIn’s Top Startups 2020
We ranked #11 on Fortune’s Best Places to Work in Financial Services 2020
Our Founder and CEO was named in Comparably’s Top 25 CEOs for Diversity
We were listed to Forbes’ FinTech 50 2020
And #15 on the 2020 CNBC Disruptor 50
We’ve secured over $254 million from our investors to date

Our company is made up of driven, passionate people who bring their unique backgrounds and perspectives to everything we do and we are committed to fostering diversity, multiculturalism, and inclusion. We see the perspectives that each person brings and a diverse workforce as essential for individual and collective success. We believe it’s important to foster a company culture that encourages curiosity and passion—from employee resource groups and learning opportunities to team outings and community outreach.
Writing at Better.com
Good writing is core to our company. Other places use big words and clunky sentences to make mortgages seem complicated. Writers here do the opposite. We distill complex information into its simplest form. We communicate things clearly to help people with different backgrounds all feel empowered. We make mortgages make sense.
The role: Senior UX Writer
Your craft will help shape every part of the digital product. You’ll simplify flows, add consistent messaging, and co-create interfaces. You’ll write and rewrite based on research and user testing. More than anything, you’ll use words to solve problems. Where do people get stuck? Why are people feeling confused? How can we explain things more clearly? You’ll also:

Work directly in Figma alongside amazing designers
Shape the strategic approach to our words and writing
Give design feedback, elevate the work, and influence our UI
Collaborate with product managers, strategists, engineers, and researchers
Work with our analytics team to measure, test, and optimize your writing

Some things we’re looking for:

3+ years of experience writing for digital products, including a portfolio of great work
A deep understanding of UX writing and interaction design
Excellent writing skills, including attention to craft and grammar
Ability to self-manage across multiple projects and deadlines
Comfort working in a fast-paced startup environment
An understanding of inclusive design and accessibility
Passion for solving complicated problems and making things simple
Friendly attitude, including the ability to give and take feedback

The Better mission is rooted in values that drive us.

We do what’s in the best interest of the consumer, not ourselves
We have growth mindsets, not fixed ones
We believe that success lies in execution, not credentials
We act like owners, not just employees
We work to find answers on our own, not wait for them to be given to us
We optimize for mission, not ego

Our mission speaks for itself—we continue to outpace the industry at every turn. We’ve recently joined forces in partnership with Ally Bank, and our backers have helped build some of the most transformative tech and finance companies in history. Kleiner Perkins, Goldman Sachs, American Express, Citigroup, Activant Capital, Ally Bank, and others have invested in our vision for what homeownership can be.
