Skyscanner is a leading global travel search site and app, a place where people are inspired to plan and book direct from millions of travel options at the best prices.
We employ over 900 staff across ten offices globally, and, having reached market leader status, we were recently acquired by Chinese online travel company Ctrip in a deal valued at £1.
4bn. While we remain operationally independent, our acquisition by Ctrip allows us to take the business to the next level of accelerated global growth.
It’s a hugely exciting time for Skyscanner and the over 60m people who use us every month. We are unbiased and free, and our secret is in our unique proprietary technology that connects people directly to everything the travel industry has to offer.
At Skyscanner, we put the traveller first and nowhere does that matter more than in our product. We're looking for a UX writer who'll be responsible for our communications on the front-
line, creating and curating user-interface content across our website and app to develop a two-way conversation with our travellers.
As our business grows, so does the importance of strong, consistent messaging. We need someone who can help us bring creativity and clarity to every brand touchpoint -
whether delighting with flourishes of micro-copy or breathing life into error messaging and legal disclaimers.
We're a wonderfully diverse company and proud of our product but (if we're honest), sometimes we forget that not everyone speaks like an engineer.
That's why we need a great writer who sees the product like a traveller. Someone who understands how we work and can interpret the most complex concepts in a human way.
