Content Designer I
Do you want to use your content design skills to help make traveling easier? Do you love making complicated stuff simple, boring stuff interesting, and interesting stuff amazing? Are you ready to help people go places?
At Expedia Group, our mission is to power global travel for everyone, everywhere. As a Content Designer on our XD (Experience Design) team, you’ll help us achieve that mission by working with a multidisciplinary design team to co-create useful, significant, and cohesive product experiences and narratives rooted in the principles of relevancy, simplicity, and delight. Drawing insights from user research, product teardowns, and other sources, you’ll identify, investigate, and craft solutions to content-design problems across the customer journey, and you’ll participate in lab testing that enables you to see the impact of your work on the products we build.
What you’ll do:
Reporting into our centralized Content Design practice, you’ll help shape the strategy and approach to content design within our Maps product area. As a member of our XD community, you’ll also be an advocate for human-centered content design. And while no two days here are identical, your main responsibilities will look something like this:

Discover opportunities to test content (A/B, usability, etc.) and participate in user studies.
