Technical Author (programmer/development writer)

This is a great opportunity to join a highly successful software company. You'll be part of a small but thriving documentation team with responsibility for producing technical documentation, including API references, tutorials, and developer guides, primarily for a software developer audience. You'll create high quality product documentation for technical users, describing complex software architectures, and how to develop software applications using the SDK, APIs, and developer tools.

As the successful candidate, you will have:

  • Solid experience of writing complex, technical documentation deliverables in a software development environment.
  • A technical background with an understanding of enterprise-scale systems or the ability and enthusiasm to grasp the technology.
  • Experience of one or more high-level programming languages.
  • Experience of API documentation and REST API tooling.
  • The ability to develop code samples and applications.
  • Experience of working closely with engineering and product management teams as part of the software development process.
  • A can do approach to a wide and rapidly changing workload.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills.

This is a great opportunity to join a friendly, professional writing team within a dynamic software company. A stimulating and rewarding working environment is on offer, as is a very competitive remuneration and benefits package. The office is in a central location within easy walking distance of a mainline train station. A car parking scheme is also available.
