We’re looking for a UX-focused copywriter to help shape Legacy’s voice across a wide array of online user experiences, writing lines that are in equal parts powerful and sensitive, compelling and compassionate.
Working at the juncture between our marketing, content, product, design, and commerce teams, the copywriter will translate the goals and concerns of various stakeholders into clear, effective messaging for a wide assortment of projects, ranging from one-word call-to-action buttons to one-sentence product explanations to complete landing pages.
This position calls for a copywriter who’s proficient at code-switching between diverse professional and cultural idioms as necessary. The successful candidate will be equally confident in the word choice appropriate for offering sympathetic obituary-writing help to a grieving family in Detroit, selling flowers to a supportive neighbor in suburban Oregon, and discussing end-of-life estate/funeral planning options with a retiree in South Carolina.
