About The Opportunity
We're all about connecting hungry diners with our network of over 300,000 restaurants nationwide. Innovative technology, user-friendly platforms and streamlined delivery capabilities set us apart and make us an industry leader in the world of online food ordering. When you join our team, you become part of a community that works together to innovate, solve problems, grow, work hard and have a ton of fun in the process!
Why Work For Us
Grubhub is a place where authentically fun culture meets innovation and teamwork. We believe in empowering people and opening doors for new opportunities. If you're looking for a place that values strong relationships, embraces diverse ideas-all while having fun together-Grubhub is the place for you!
About You : You understand how to adapt the written word in our unique brand voices to communicate the right information at the right time to our end users. Someone who understands that their job is as much keeping words off the interface as anything else. You know the differences between marketing and UX communication and when to use both to communicate in the best way to the user.
At Grubhub, we create connections between hardworking and busy diners and the restaurants that want to reach them. Join a passionate and skilled team of experienced designers who are driven by a mission to bring easy, delightful food ordering and delivery experiences to millions of people every day. As a member of the Product Design team, you'll use every tool in your copy writing toolbox - problem solving, content planning, user interface writing, and collaboration with marketing - to shape the future of food ordering experiences. You'll collaborate with our content strategy team to build creative, unique content strategies that map to high-level business goals, serve the needs of our users, and map to all stages of the customer journey.
The Impact You Will Make

  • Join our UX researchers to observe and conduct user testing and research to inform our experiences
  • Write clearly, concisely, and fearlessly for all of our products' elements including emails, microcopy, push notifications, text messages, help text, and probably some things we haven't thought of yet

  • Provide feedback in all stages of a product's development lifecycle-from brainstorming to retrospectives
  • Collaborate with Content Strategist in design systems to contribute to voice, tone, and evolving writing style guidelines
  • Be able to clearly present, explain, and justify your copy decisions to anyone who might ask about them; Think about the copy you write holistically. In other words, understand how the words you use impact the user now, but also in other parts of the user journey
  • Understand prototyping methodologies and practices, user research methodologies, and A/B test planning/execution
  • Collaborate with our Marketing team on a holistic voice for our brands
  • Collaborate with product managers, engineers, and the members of the design and research teams on the delivery of new features
  • Promote the practice of content strategy within the company
  • Collaborate with our Marketing team on a holistic voice for our brands

**Please include a link to samples of your work that show an experience across different content types. You may show us content you've created for user interfaces, microcopy, user education, direct or transactional emails, style guides or product launch content.**
What You Bring to the Table
  • At least 5 years of creating and managing content for web and mobile interfaces
  • The skill of internalizing our brand voice, then evolving it in a way that makes sense for the part of the product you are working on
  • The ability to synthesize what's important quickly and work across multiple teams to deliver high-quality writing and content experiences
  • Outstanding communication and collaboration skills-you'll be working with a cross-functional team of software engineers, data scientists, and product designers. Bring folks on your journey and support your decisions with focus and brevity
  • Experience moving fluidly between high-level content strategy practices and hands-on writing tasks

  • An acute self-awareness and deep empathy for both the customer and your team's goals
  • Excellent communication skills. You can bring internal stakeholders on your design journey and support your decisions with focus and brevity
  • A deep curiosity and ability to consider product strategy and vision. You don't just care about "how it looks," or "what we should say about this," but "why are we adding content at all?"
  • Food writing experience a plus

An Insider's view of Grubhub

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our inside sales team lives on the company's front lines, playing an integral part in our growth strategy. Our sales team has direct access to our CSO, CEO and the entire marketing team. Their feedback, ideas, and suggestions -- even down to who they choose to call day in and day out ultimately define who our next client becomes.
