One of our valued clients is seeking a Marketing/Technical contract writer for a long-term onsite role in Round Rock, TX. Benefits through Aquent and PTO!

Seeking an experienced writer who can meld technical information and marketing strategies into effective communications -- from fliers and sales guides to articles, white papers, and web pages.

This full-time, contract position at our Round Rock office requires a clear, conversational writing style as well as curiosity, flexibility, initiative, and the ability to work as part of a global team. Experience writing about refining, oil & gas production, chemical manufacturing, mining, industrial energy, or process automation is a plus, as is a background in journalism/PR or B2B marketing communications. Relocation is not available.

Candidates should provide a resume and 2-3 relevant writing samples.

Qualifications:

Outstanding writing skills, with samples to prove it
Able to write in a conversational style suitable for marketing communications
Comfortable writing about technical topics, especially for less-technical audiences
Flawless at grammar, punctuation, and style (with experience following a style guide)
Able to write for different media and audiences (print & online, engineers & executives)
Able to write quickly and accurately. At the same time.

Editing/rewriting skills
Capable of finding or establishing structure where none was apparent
Adept at improving clarity and readability
Skilled at convincing others to accept your edits – even when they get the last word

Research / interviewing skills
Good interviewer / listener / note-taker
Able to dig for answers or information (during interviews or meetings, or on your own)
Willing to diplomatically but effectively challenge incomplete or dubious information

Flexibility
Able to follow directions and work smoothly as part of a diverse, global team – but also to work independently and manage your own time
Comfortable writing within a structured format, even when the inputs are messy
Able to “wing it” and find your own way in new situations, and adjust quickly when requirements change

Diverse but relevant experience
Several years’ employment as a writer (this is not an entry-level job)
Proven aptitude for understanding & explaining technical or scientific topics – ideally backed by experience doing so in journalism/PR or marketing communications jobs
Knowledge of chemical, refining, or oil & gas industries, or of process-control technology, is a strong plus.
Familiarity with MS Word is assumed; PowerPoint is a plus.
