UX Writers at PlayStation help define the user experience for new and existing PlayStation products, services, and off-console experiences, delivering high-quality messaging based on the feature spec, established style guides, business objectives, and overall UX philosophies. This includes actively participating in and giving constructive feedback in early Product grooming and UX design sessions, then driving the writing process through iteration, stakeholder/partner approval, and handoff to localization.

This senior-level position focuses on features related to gaming and core platform experiences in our product and service ecosystem. You'll advocate for and champion all types of players and users, exercising design thinking. You'll also be writing in multiple dimensions, as you create copy that appears on console, mobile, web, and more, and also gets localized into dozens of languages. While we appreciate a good blogger and technical writing, what we’re really looking for are strong UX writers with interactive experience.

Our writers have a facility for solving problems from both creative and tactical standpoints. The senior writer role is also responsible for reviewing the work of other writers, checking for terminology accuracy, grammatical correctness, tone-of-voice application, constructive feedback to junior writers, and overall UX cohesion.

You will juggle multiple products on multiple platforms, often on multiple schedules and in multiple time zones, making organization a key factor. Social skills are vital, as you will routinely collaborate with engineers, designers, localization managers, and product owners representing a wide variety of locations and cultural backgrounds. A willingness to make positive contributions to help improve how we do/make things, from tools to process, is also imperative.
