Shape living for the better. At globe scale

For us going to work every day has an even greater purpose than putting the latest product or technology on the market. It’s about improving the everyday lives of millions. By staying humble and open to new ideas we can push the boundaries of cooking, cleaning, and wellbeing at home. But to keep doing so, we need more people who want to innovate and re-imagine what life at home can be. 

Your Role


In this design role you will be part of the team responsible for defining and crafting an overall Connected Appliance UX Design direction across the many different products we design and manufacture.

UX Writers work hand-in-hand with other members of product, marketing, design, and technology teams to bring intuitive products to life. They look for opportunities to connect the dots across product teams and identify key dependencies. Your core mission is to work across different connected products to create thoughtful and thorough user experiences.

Our Lead UX Writer will collaborate with cross-functional product teams to craft intuitive, actionable, and easy-to-understand user experiences by creating short- and long-form content strategy for customer-facing digital products.

You will ensure compliance with brand, voice and tone, and style guidance to sustain consistent experiences throughout Electrolux digital products and channels. The Lead UX Writer also contributes to the development and iteration of content and content strategy standards, best practices, and processes through quantitative and qualitative testing and analysis of Electrolux experiences as well as remaining current on developments in the UX writing and content strategy disciplines outside of Electrolux.
