UX Writer



Cookpad is the world’s largest recipe sharing platform where almost 100 million global users come to enjoy cooking each month in +28 languages. Our story so far is here.

Our mission is to make everyday cooking fun. We believe we can build a better world through encouraging even more people to cook. Everyday, home cooking has a profound impact on ourselves and the world around us: it makes us healthier and connects us with our friends and family. Through solving the problems related to everyday cooking, we help people live happier and healthier lives in an environment that is more sustainable. That’s how we want to impact the world.

We need immediate, short-term help from an experienced freelance UX writer and it will be essential that you can demonstrate previous experience with writing UX copy for Apps and Web. The role can be remote, but ideally in the UK or US time zones.

You’ll also work with our Communications lead to help develop Cookpad’s tone of voice. We’re a fast-paced, highly ambitious team, meaning we need someone who can get up to speed very quickly and work well under pressure.
