Some of the largest companies in the world make use of the product. Why? Because of it’s ability to quickly create customized workflows and content models, really driving a programmatic approach to content and enabling them to distribute structured content.
Behind every successful product is top class documentation. With this company, documentation isn’t just an afterthought. It’s a core part of the product’s development. You’d be working closely with product teams as they develop features, collaborating with engineers to make your content come alive. Initially, you’ll be working closely with one other more junior writer, who’s actually from an engineering background. You’ll work together to gather information, coordinate roadmaps and ensure documentation accuracy.

What best practices and processes do you want to introduce?
What experience do I need?
