Tech Writer

0 people like this description

Technical writers take complex information and communicate it clearly, concisely and accurately without relying on technical or corporate jargon to explain what they're trying to say.

With a unique cross functional perspective, technical writers are the key link between our engineers, marketing associates, developer advocates and external users and developers.

As a Technical Writer, you create a bridge between disparate engineering groups by creating the documentation for platform APIs that are to be used internally and eventually a broader audience. When a new technical challenge rises to forefront, you are there to defuse it with your clarifying pen (or keyboard, more likely).

Description
You develop complex, in-depth communications for internal and external audiences.

Minimum Qualifications
BA/BS degree (In lieu of degree, 4 years relevant work experience). Experience in some form of programming language (C/C#/C++, Java, Python, Perl, JavaScript, etc.)

Background in technical writing and editing is a plus.

Traits of qualifying candidates include:
Great writing and communication skills.
Candidates are responsive, have good organization skills, but should also be creative with a desire to design and create content experiences beyond what is already written.

Preferred Qualifications
Knowledge of programming languages.
2-5 years of relevant experience, such as technical or marketing writing, product documentation or online publishing.
Experience with writing documentation for APIs and platforms.

Responsibilities
Write documentation for APIs for a customizable, interactive, geospatial suite for massively multiplayer online games with the Earth itself as the game board. Support teams across the group and across geographical locations.
Ensure customers have positive interactions.
Research new solutions to improve existing documentation and processes.
