Job description

At Oval we are looking to innovate the traditional finance space with a new completely disintermediated platform for saving and investing. We believe that intermediation is over, with technology disruption, in a number of industries, replacing the middleman. We want to do the same for finance. It is an ambitious task and thus we are looking for people to join the Oval team to help make this happen.

You will be part of a team of serial entrepreneurs with a global market experience in building tech startups and you will have the opportunity to change the financial market, by bringing better education and inclusion. You will be independent and can manage your own schedule but will be working with an international and diverse team of people that together have the mission to change the financial world forever.

In this Role you will:

Use writing and editing skills to write UI text that facilitates user navigation, as well onboarding, promos, error messages, instructional materials and other components of the end-to-end user experience.
Drive vision for product language and content across a product or subject-matter domain and ensure cohesive product narratives. Document your strategies with guidelines and establish best practices and strategy principles.
Manage projects from needs assessment to implementation. Identify opportunities, establish priorities, secure resources and manage stakeholders.
Collaborate with designers, researchers, legal, marketing, product managers and engineers and influence and adapt to stakeholders and their feedback

1–2 years of microcopy/UX writing experience (UI writing, notifications, errors, tooltips, settings, and similar surfaces)
Ability to build language systems and vocabulary for new features
A portfolio of UX writing, or samples of microcopy/UX writing (please send with your application): onboarding, tooltips, buttons, emails, errors, settings, feature naming, or other user flows. Best if your portfolio includes at least one full user flow.
A collaborative, iterative working style
Experience partnering with designers, researchers, and product managers.
Excellent organizational and time-management skills
Outstanding communication, interpersonal and leadership skills
Attention to details
