Documentation Engineer

Location: London

Length: 6 months

Rate: £36.91 - £41.76 per hour (40 hours p/w)

Hours: 9am-6pm

As a Documentation Engineer, you will be part of a technical writing team responsible for the quality, discoverability, and accuracy of developer-focused content for both internal and external technologies.

You will do hands-on research and obtain necessary technical content from subject matter experts while translating it into clear, concise, structured documentation.

This means sometimes you are documenting something yourself, sometimes you are editing contributed content from someone else, and other times you are fixing and reorganizing existing documentation. In addition, you may also have opportunities to do some coding and project management for various documentation requests.

Required Skills:

  • Create and maintain internal and external documentation for technologies and tools used within the company.
  • Work closely with engineering, product, and support teams to ensure the quality, discoverability, and accuracy of the content you create and develop.
  • Design, write, and edit technical and process documentation.
  • Navigate through multiple platforms such as web, iOS, and Android.
  • Create and maintain code sample fragments and sample apps.

Preferred Skills:
  • Basic knowledge of programming.
  • Write and test simple sample code.
  • Read and understand sample code.
  • Use command line tools.
Minimum Qualifications:
  • BA/BS degree in computer science, technical writing, physics, mathematics, or chemistry or equivalent experience.
  • 5+ years’ experience in writing, technical documentation, and/or developer outreach for a developer audience.
