A strong content designer should have a broad range of skills, including writing, design, data analysis, UX, and more. Content designers should know how the content creation and product/web design and development process works and must understand how to analyze user and content data to make continuous improvements. Content designers are focused on developing seamless user experiences with superb writing, plain language, and human-centered messaging.   

To help you hire the right candidate, we put together a sample content designer job description. This description is based on dozens of content design jobs we have posted over time on our Content Jobs board and our deep experience consulting on hiring for content roles. 

It lists all of the core skills you should look for in a content designer. You can use this sample job description as the foundation for your next content design hire and build in specifics for your company or organization.
