With a specialized focus on content strategy and UX writing, our Content Design team plays an invaluable role in crafting the tone, language, and narrative continuity of the HomeAway product experience. As a Content Design/UX Writing Intern, you’ll help to make content clearer and more meaningful for our Web and app products. And, as a member of our Global Experience Design group, you'll help transform business problems into user-experience opportunities — crafting, testing, and launching products that are usable, useful, and delightful to the travelers and homeowners who make up both sides of our vacation-rental marketplace.
You'll be paired with a Senior Content Designer, who will act as your mentor throughout the program. Drawing from insights, messaging frameworks, and customer data, you’ll identify, investigate and validate content-design problems, and you'll observe customer testing that enables you to see the impact of your work on the products we design. This is a rare opportunity for someone pursuing a degree in Technical Writing, Information Design, English, Journalism, Linguistics, or Library Science to gain hands-on experience in content design for a leading global travel brand.
