Episode #9 - UX Writing at Spotify, with Tamara Hilmes
Spotify! Do you use it? Probably. Remember when we owned CDs? Crazy. Actually, you know what’s crazy? Paying for stuff I don’t have in my hands. I’m 32, so I still want to read that lyrics sheet damn it. No, streaming is better. And Tamara Hilmes is one of the people making it better. She’s a UX Writing Manager at Spotify, and she and I spent some time talking about her background, what makes working at Spotify so great, and the skills she needs to succeed at a major company there - and how to succeed as a UX writer, specifically. Her experience is impressive. Foursquare, Vimeo, and she’s written a ton about UX writing in general. Say hi to Tamara on Linkedin.
